Hull-based agency, Slice Marketing, has increased its workforce following a strong period of growth and new contract wins.
In order to service an increased demand, the company has taken advantage of the Kickstart scheme to employ Kim-Christopher de Pili as a marketing executive.
Kim joins the company having graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University with a first class honours degree in Advertising & Brand Management.
Kim Christopher de Pili, marketing executive, said: “I love being challenged and facing new learning opportunities, which is exactly what I get at Slice.”
“I’ve been working at the company for a couple of months now and it’s been great to get first hand industry experience. Learning how to develop and run a successful marketing campaign for our clients has been really exciting.
“I graduated during the pandemic, which was a scary time for a student to be entering the job market. The scheme has really helped me get ahead and I’ve found a great company to work for as well.”
Chris Jacobsen, director at Slice Marketing, said: “We’ve been blown away by Kim’s level of commitment and ability. He has been delighting clients with his ideas and application.
“The kickstarter scheme has really helped us as a business during very uncertain times. We were delighted to start working with new clients on some exciting projects and being able to give talented young people from the area an opportunity is a real bonus.”
The Kickstarter scheme was introduced by the government to provide funding to employers to create jobs for 16 to 24 year olds on Universal Credit.
