Manchester agency SLG has made a raft of new creative, client services and PR hires.

A total of 11 new staff have joined the business, taking it to a headcount of 40. Clients include Polypipe, Johnstone’s Paint, SIG, Bison and Nuffield Health.

Among the key new hires is business director, Jeremy Ervine, formerly of Adelaide agency Fnuky, and creative duo Hayley Parle and Amy Berriman, who join the agency from McCann Manchester.

Ervine said: “My work in advertising has always been about being bold, brave and exciting – traits that I see in the team here at SLG and want to bring to the fore.”

Julie Malone, MD, added: “We’re working to create an atmosphere where every member of staff is able to challenge and inspire, working with other like minds to create ideas that are so exciting they’re infectious. That we’ve managed to attract 11 new recruits of the calibre we have speaks volumes about the way our vision is being received.”
