PR firm takes on two staff

Huddersfield based marketing, PR and social media agency, KC Communications has appointed two further employees as the business continues on its expansion path with turnover on track to increase by 70% by the end of 2016.

KC Communications, founded in August 2014, has seen phenomenal growth over the past six months, leading to the appointment of an Account Manager and a Marketing Assistant.

The appointments come after a series of account wins and their expanding remit for digital infrastructure provider, CityFibre.

Sarah Benson, who joins as Marketing Account Manager from a Leeds based PR agency will be responsible for the management of both existing and new accounts whilst playing in key role in driving the business forward. Olivia Bates has also joined as Marketing Assistant from local charity, Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice to support the growing team.

The company, which is approaching the end of its second year in business has recently moved to larger premises to cater for a growing team, whilst growth has been continual both in turnover and sales enquiries.

Katrina Cliffe, Managing Director at KC Communications commented:

“The past two years have been phenomenal for KC Communications and the future looks promising. Even with the recent Brexit vote, our sales pipeline has increased by 52% this month which shows British businesses are keen to keep the momentum going. I am excited to watch how our third year in business develops and expect another recruit in the pipeline very soon. I am delighted to welcome Sarah and Olivia on board and look forward to contributing to their future career development”.
