Mediaworks reveals its plans for the year ahead
Digital marketing agency Mediaworks has revealed it plans to double its workforce to 90 in the next two years after moving its head office to a building three times the size of its former offices. The new offices have undergone a six-figure investment to adapt them for Mediaworks to accommodate the firm’s current 45-strong workforce, with the capacity to house up to 150 as the company grows. The company’s expansion has been supported by a £200,000 Regional Growth Fund bid, which it won recently through The Journal newspaper’s Let’s Grow campaign. Managing director Brett Jacobson, commented on the expansion plans: “Having doubled our workforce in the last 12 months we really needed a move to facilitate our ongoing expansion. This move gives us that and there’s even extra room to grow in the adjacent buildings. “In the last office, integration between teams was a bit of a problem and we felt we wanted to build more of a family feel to the place. We’ve certainly got this with our new HQ, which has been developed with an open plan layout. “We’ve also installed all the latest video conferencing technology in state of the art meeting rooms to enable us to service our global clients more efficiently.” 2013 will also see Mediaworks continue its plans to open a satellite office in London within six months and work to achieve a £10 million turnover by 2014.
