Edit has moved into a premium city centre space designed by Design Tonic, as part of ambitious 2020 growth plans across its Leeds, Bath and London offices.
At No.1 Whitehall Riverside, the new Edit office fills 7,500 sq ft of space on the third floor in the building. Edit was formerly based at Thorpe Business Park in East Leeds. Adjacent to the railyway station with riverside views and a bespoke “Editorium” event space, the new office is perfectly positioned as a digital marketing hub for clients and staff alike.

Our new office is a fantastic networking space with an Editorium available for workshops and events. The central location will enable clients to join us for events and talks, whilst bringing us closer to Leeds’s thriving digital marketing community.
“We have big plans for Edit in 2020. We will continue to invest in areas of growth, innovating our service areas and investing in top talent.”
It’s an exciting time for Edit, seeing continued growth in it its financial services, travel and leisure, retail and pharmaceuticals client base with recent client wins such as Sunlife, Online Casinos and Black Tomato adding to their established base of internationally recognisable clients such as Vue, Jaguar Land Rover and Shell.
The office move also opens doors to new opportunities for recruitment, with currently available roles in SEO, sales and paid media.
Joel added: “It’s a great honour to be invited to lead the digital business within Edit as well as growth for the wider business. It’s a life-long ambition and one that I am truly excited and energised by.
“We have a fantastic future ahead; our focus in 2020 is to continue to deliver incredible commercial results and great brand building work for our clients, to build great new relationships with ambitious, growth-focused businesses, and to innovate our products to drive new value and improve operational effectiveness.
