Independent digital agency Mediaworks plans to create 30 new jobs in the North West after opening a new Manchester office.

The new Manchester office, located at Jactin House in Ancoats, follows the appointment of Oliver Goldring as managing partner to lead the agency’s North West operation.

With its North West-based client wins the agency has opted to invest into its presence in the region, with client wins including Winter Gardens, Hill Dickinson LLP and Salix Homes.

Brett Jacobson, CEO and founder of Mediaworks, explained: “We’ve launched an aggressive recruitment campaign in the North West that aims to see 30 heads operating from our new Manchester base in the next 18 months. We want to recruit the best from a rich digital talent pool here in the North West, adding them to our current crop of digital experts across the group.

"Oliver and his growing team in Manchester are going to have a fantastic future as part of the agency.”

Oliver Goldring, managing partner for Mediaworks’ North West operations, added: “We’re thrilled to have secured and moved into our new office in the heart of Ancoats. Mediaworks has such a brilliant team, both here in Manchester and across its sites in the UK&I. This is a huge opportunity to fuel growth right across the group.”

The agency, founded in 2007 by Brett Jacobson, currently has 200 staff across its six offices in Newcastle, Leeds, Edinburgh, Manchester, London and Dublin.
