MET Marketing, a Leeds based digital and marketing recruitment consultancy, has strengthened its operations across the North of England with the appointment of a new Head of Agency to the team.
James Nelson has joined MET to head up the Agency division across both Yorkshire and the North West. James is the first appointment in a planned growth of digital recruitment services following the rapid shift in market needs due to the digitalisation of many businesses as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. His focus will primarily be in supporting Marketing Agencies with any digital recruitment requirements.
James brings nearly ten years of experience having worked in marketing recruitment for Michael Page, Network Marketing and Sphere. He has a wealth of sector knowledge and has successfully launched divisions and teams throughout his career.
MET co-founder Ed Sutcliffe said: “As a well-known recruiter across the North of England who genuinely cares and is passionate about the Creative and Digital sector we were delighted that James got in touch with us.
“He is a fantastic hire for the business at an important time in our development and we are looking forward to him leading the expansion of our agency offering.”
James said: “I’m delighted to be joining a business where I can add value, achieve sustained growth and continue to service the digital and marketing industry that I love. The ethical values of MET and the genuine passion of the leadership team and focus on delivering great service meant it was top of my wish list and I’m delighted to be part of the team.”
James will be working flexibly, splitting his time between MET’s head office in Leeds City Centre and his own bases in Altrincham and Harrogate.
