Beattie is adding a digital team to its Edinburgh office due to the city’s growing international reputation for digital marketing and the subsequent demand for digital talent in the region.

Laurna Woods, group managing director at Beattie, said: “Edinburgh has a growing reputation as a hub for the digital marketing sector, and we’ve had international clients specifically asking for people based in the city, so we’re responding to market demand by creating these jobs.”

Up until now, Beattie’s Edinburgh team has consisted solely of PR professionals. However, the communications consultancy is making six new hires in order to add the digital team to its offering.

Woods added: “Business is booming across all our brands as clients turn to us more and more for integrated communications embracing PR, digital, social and creative services. What’s also encouraging is that we are winning a great deal of international business, which now accounts for 20% of our £15 million group turnover.”

Beattie’s specialist ‘Only Digital’ team requires search marketers, content creators and website developers. The new jobs are being created as part of Beattie’s pledge to create 30 new jobs across the UK in celebration of its 30th birthday. The agency has made 17 hires to date.

Beattie currently has eight UK offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Falkirk, Essex, London, Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester.
