Award-winning PR, SEO and content marketing agency, No Brainer has made two new senior hires to support its continued growth.
Digital PR and content specialist, Victoria Attwood, joins the No Brainer from digital marketing agency Cedarwood Digital as Account Director. Victoria brings over eight years’ experience to the role and will help drive the agency’s Digital PR offering.
Tom Houghton, former North West Business Editor at Business Live – which encompasses the Manchester Evening News and Liverpool Echo – joins the agency as Senior News and Content Manager.
The agency has also welcomed its first apprentice, with 18-year-old Ella Howatson joining the team whilst working towards a QA Digital Marketing qualification.
The appointments come just a couple of weeks after the agency was awarded the North West’s ‘PR Consultancy of the Year’ by the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR). It has also been named in Prolific North’s Top 50 PR agencies and took home the Media Relations Award at the Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA) 2021 Awards.
No Brainer co-founder and managing director, Gary Jenkins said of the new appointments: “Victoria’s extensive knowledge of digital PR, SEO, and content marketing paired with Tom’s keen eye for a story make for the perfect additions to our growing team. We’re so proud to have Victoria and Tom join us, and to be attracting this calibre of professionals who want to work alongside us and grow with us. I’m confident they’ll both bring something special to the agency.
“Being in a position to invest in young talent like Ella is really rewarding too, and she is relishing the opportunity to forge a new career with us, rolling up her sleeves and doing an amazing job so far. We’re really proud to be championing apprenticeships as more and more young people consider on-the-job learning as an alternative to university.”
