Manchester agency Social Communications has hired three new staff.
Frances Bibby, a prolific blogger and writer who previously worked for a lifestyle magazine in South Yorkshire, joins as social media manager.
Luke Barnett joins as videographer to run the agency’s recently launched film offer. His most recent project is a film to be shown at the major Chartered Institute of Housing Conference in Manchester on behalf of organisers Ocean Media.
John Quinton-Barber, managing director, said: “All three bring a real depth and breadth of experience to our already strong team of PR, public affairs and design experts.
“In a rapidly changing market where many of their skills are needed but are often outsourced, we saw the potential to bring such talent in-house and they are already proving their worth, adding an extra dimension and a real creative buzz to all the work we do for our clients.”
The new recruits take headcount at the agency – where clients include Devonshire’s Solicitors, United Living, Procurement Hub and Boxed Energy – to 11.
