Emma Kemmery has joined the Barnsley-based agency as its latest member of staff after being employed with the help of Benchmark Recruit.
Journalism graduate Emma will work directly with Cream’s clients, who are from a wide-range of sectors including engineering, education, community organisations, tourism, transport and retail.
Emma, who is 21, went to Rodillian High School in Wakefield before studying Journalism at Liverpool John Moores University.
She is the latest member of the growing team in Cream’s office at the Digital Media Centre.
She will join directors Jane Whitham and Elizabeth Hudson, PR manager Lucy Ashton, PR apprentice Chloe Stainforth and PR assistant Holly Worsley.
“In the past six months we have employed four new members of staff and are looking to recruit two more members of staff which is testament to how quickly Cream is growing as a business.
“Benchmark Recruit gave us invaluable help in finding the right candidate. Cream is going from strength to strength, both in terms of our client base and our staff.
“We’re delighted to welcome Emma on board and are sure she’ll be a valuable asset to Cream’s team.”
Cream was recently awarded Highly Commended in Most Promising Start-up category at the Barnsley and Rotherham Chamber of Commerce annual awards.
And Cream has also been nominated in three categories in the PR industry’s equivalent of “Oscars” – the CIPR PRide awards for Yorkshire and Lincs.
These categories include Outstanding Small Consultancy, Best Corporate and Business Communication Campaign and Outstanding Young Communicator.
The winners will be announced at a dinner in Leeds later this month.
Back in August, Cream was awarded a Gold standard by a panel of independent industry experts at BestForPR, an independent research company which helps businesses across the UK find the best PR agencies.
