One of Yorkshire’s fastest growing PR and Marketing agencies has appointed a head of digital.
And Matt Dickinson’s arrival at Harrogate-based The Big Bamboo Agency, which was launched less than three years ago, takes the company’s headcount to 16.
Matt, who has spent eight years crafting his profession, will spearhead client SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and PPC campaigns. He will be responsible for the management of their online presence, analyse website performance as well as report on competitor activity.
The Big Bamboo Agency’s founder, Nicola Stamford, said: “We are delighted to welcome Matt to the growing Big Bamboo team. Matt’s experience will add a very significant string to our bow, and gives us another specialism to benefit our existing clients, as well as new ones.
“Matt’s arrival is a great opportunity for us, and one that I’m confident will help open new doors, as his skills will put us on the radar of a wide range of businesses that were previously out of our grasp.”
Matt said: “Joining The Big Bamboo Agency as its head of digital is an exciting step for me, and I know I can add real value to the business, and more importantly to its clients.
“I’m really looking forward to heading up the agency’s digital offering and implementing the skills I’ve learned over the last eight years.”
Matt graduated from Leeds Beckett University with a BA (Hons) in business and management. His first experience of digital marketing was in 2013 with a Harrogate-based SEO specialist firm.
From initially working with a range of clients across a broad spectrum of digital marketing disciplines, he then concentrated on technical SEO and content marketing, which saw him structuring new websites, restructuring existing websites, keyword research and optimising page content.
In his last position as a senior SEO manager with a Leeds based digital agency, Matt ran the SEO Department, managing client accounts, mentoring members of the wider team and exploring opportunities for client growth.”
