We are thrilled to announce that we are expanding our UK physical presence to Manchester!
The agency has now hit 95 staff and soon to be 100 with a new Manchester office opening and Chicago expansion earlier this year. We are expanding rapidly with 15 job roles open right now and we expect to double headcount by the end of 2021.
We have signed a whopping 24 new clients in the last three months, including Monzo, Tough Mudder, Confused.com, Klarna and more. Our Sheffield HQ is expanding currently with a new space for 110 staff but we expect to reach capacity really quickly. As a result of this, we have decided to expand to Manchester to get access to a whole new talent pool of creatives and digital talent. We already have 2 senior heads of services within Manchester and are looking to hire.
On the news Carrie Rose, Chief Executive of Rise at Seven, said:
"I am absolutely thrilled to announce that we are expanding our physical presence to Manchester. We have just had our second birthday and with the recent addition of some huge clients based in Manchester's media city, this expansion was the obvious move. This is going to mean we can work even closer with them to help build brand, tie search, social and PR altogether. We are quickly expanding and are rapidly closing in on the 100 staff mark based across Sheffield, London & Chicago. Our Manchester office will give us access to the huge amount of talent within the city to help propel the agency globally."
Not only that, El Chetcuti, former Head of Brand at Missguided joins us to head up our rapidly expanding content marketing team as Head of Campaigns.
El will be heading up our newly formed cross channel content marketing offering as well as content strategy to create work that will span across search, content, creative, social and experiential to deliver bigger and better campaigns than any agency on the planet.
The hire comes following a 190% growth YoY and a number of disruptor brand client wins across fast fashion, banking, beauty, travel and more.
El brings a huge amount of experience from running some of the biggest fashion campaigns in the world from collaborating with high profile celebrities to directing TV shoots on the coasts of California.
El says: “I'm especially excited to be part of an agency which is driven by tangible customer insight and relevancy who executes campaigns with such creative flare! I'm looking forward to enhancing Rise At Seven's campaigns offering into a 360 customer experience which drives ROI across all marketing channels. My strengths lie in creating viral engagement and disruptive thinking whilst maintaining a commercial outlook.”
With 50 awards over our first 2 years including Global Large Content Marketing Agency of the Year, Large UK Search Agency of the Year and a host of campaign awards for our clients, we are levelling up again. We are famous for our cutting edge, disruptive campaigns, and they are only getting bigger. We make our clients famous by producing campaigns that drive both brand and search, and you will even want to tell your mum about them.
Luke Cope, Content Marketing Director adds: “El previously hired us as an agency to support the growth of a leading fast fashion brand and now we are honored to have her want to join us in driving cross channel campaigns at Rise at Seven. El is bringing with her a wealth of experience from PR, social, content and brand from within a fast paced environment. When we were looking for someone to head up our campaigns and content strategy offering there was only really one name on our list. It's amazing to bring someone in with her level of experience to continue growing what we're famous for. I have no doubt that El will smash it and bring in the next round of award winning work and continue to fill our bathtub.”
