In its 25-year history Media Contacts’ PR team has predominantly focussed its efforts across London. Given the vast concentration of PR agencies and practitioners, the capital has long been recognised as a public relations hub. Yet there is a hive of PR activity across the UK and some of the best, award-winning agencies can be found in cities such as Birmingham, Liverpool, Manchester and Edinburgh, to name but a few.
In order to strengthen its relationships with existing PR clients in the Midlands and the north of the UK, and also to tap into some amazing new talent streams, Media Contacts is delighted to announce the creation of its Birmingham office. Former Weber Shandwick PR consultant turned recruiter, John Bowen, will head-up this exciting opportunity and has already been busy building relationships with new clients and candidates alike.
Regarding this new enterprise, John said: “Media Contacts is consistently seeing great PR talent created outside of London, fostered by agencies that dare to be different. We want to act as a conduit for gifted PR practitioners who are looking to make their mark anywhere in the UK and the creation of the Birmingham office will play a key role in this. So if you’re looking for an exciting new job in PR or are in an agency looking to make some great hires, please get in touch!”
