Leeds agency Pure Creative Marketing has hired five new staff in response to a spate of new business wins and increased demand from existing clients.

Journalism graduate Jake Cunliffe joins Pure’s PR division – which launched in October last year – as a senior account executive, after two years at communications agency Local Dialogue.

Fellow journalism graduate Liam Southwell, who recently completed an internship at Approach PR, joins him as PR account executive.

Charlotte Jackson takes up the role of account executive in Pure’s marketing department, having spent three years as a creative manager at men’s clothing company Joseph Turner.

Finally, Adam Fraser and Dave Jones join as designers. Fraser previously worked at Media21A and Route 1 Games, while Jones was at Commence Marketing.
