At Chatter she will organise, coordinate and produce marketing projects across the agency.
Robyn Gunn, 23, is taking up the role of junior copywriter at Chatter, working on clients across the agency including Asda and Northern. She recently graduated in English and Philosophy from the University of Leeds. Whilst studying, she undertook marketing and journalism roles and worked as a student ambassador for companies including Amazon Prime and Bumble.
A new junior art director has also been appointed. Chris Sharp, 21, has studied graphic design for seven years, including receiving a first-class degree with honours from the University of Hull. Chris will work across Chatter’s client accounts, which include Asda and YBS.
Chatter, which works with businesses to improve how they attract, recruit and engage with their talent, now employs a team of 19, with its office based in Castleton Mills in Leeds. It is celebrating its tenth birthday in 2021.
Paul Ainley, managing director of Chatter Communications, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Lauren, Robyn and Chris to Team Chatter. They all wowed us with their creativity, their skills, their enthusiasm and their excitement to roll their sleeves up and get stuck in!
“It’s a really exciting time for the agency, with lots of new briefs coming in. Never has employer branding, company culture and EVP been so high up on boards’ agendas. Hybrid and remote working bring their own unique challenges to businesses and employee wellbeing and positive mental health is at the forefront of priorities. There’s going to be big changes ahead and we’re delighted to have a strong and talented team in place to help businesses navigate them and come out thriving.”
Lauren said: “I was immediately attracted to Chatter because the opportunity seemed a perfect fit in terms of what I was looking for at the start of my career journey – a supportive and friendly workplace, opportunities to grow, learn and experience a lot and finally the freedom to be myself. There’s an impressive range of really high profile clients and the work is always varied and interesting. It’s been great to get stuck straight in!”
