Yorkshire integrated digital marketing specialist, Fishtank Agency, has appointed four employees to support the ongoing demand for its services as businesses seek to enhance their online impact.
The agency, which specialises in web development and digital marketing saw its turnover increase in the past twelve months, recently hiring Liam Rainford as the company’s first junior graphic designer & animator along with Max Wright as a placement junior front-end developer. Pre-pandemic saw Jacy Yates as junior digital marketer and Georgina Kettle as account executive to support the delivery of both new and existing projects.
Liam, a graduate of Leeds Arts University, has a BA in Graphic Design and experience gained with a design agency in New York. Liam will focus on all aspects of Graphic Design, from digital, print to animation.
Max, currently a Computing student at The University of Huddersfield, is undertaking a year-long placement with plans to work part-time during his final year before joining the firm full-time upon graduation.
To enhance the delivery of the client services department and the development and implementation of client strategy, Jacy will utilise her knowledge from studying Events Management at the University of the Highlands and Islands, while Georgina brings valuable experience from a marketing placement with IKEA alongside studying Media and Popular Culture at The University of Huddersfield.
Founder and managing director Damien Fisher said: “We are so delighted to welcome Liam, Max, Jacy and Georgina to the tank. The last year has been a tough year for many, but especially for graduates who face entering a world of work that has been completely turned upside down.”
“Although our new recruits joined amid a global pandemic and have worked wholly remotely since joining us, they have taken their roles by the horns and worked hard to prove their passion and knowledge to provide our clients with a high-quality service. We are excited to see what the future holds.”
Georgina said: “I’m thrilled to have joined the talented team at Fishtank Agency. I look forward to creating identities, digital platforms and strategic campaigns that transform businesses with such a passionate team.”
