John Quinton-Barber, managing director at Social Communications, said: “One Manchester is making an impact on the lives of thousands of people across the City and is a real part of the solution to Manchester’s current housing crisis.

“We look forward to helping to position the newly created organisation as it expands and seeks to make the most out of opportunities around the Greater Manchester devolution deal and Government’s Northern Powerhouse initiative.”

Shelley Kemp, head of communications at One Manchester, said: “Their connectivity and understanding of our sector and the local and national political landscape will be invaluable as we continue to grow and respond to new challenges in the market.”

Social Communications works across the housing, energy, retail and leisure sectors, with clients including Places for People, Bruntwood, G4S, United Living, Tesco and FT Finley.
