Company Description

We’re an ambitious team of digital marketers with expertise across media, design and technology - spread across two offices in St. Ives, Cornwall and Marlow.

Over the past two years we’ve seen significant growth, expanding from a team of 4 to 10. Our journey began specialising in the aesthetics, medical and health industries, however a recent partnership with a branding agency has seen us enter the retail space.

We now successfully manage a portfolio of retail websites across the UK and Europe, to add to our existing client list of over 20 clients.

We offer the following services to our clients:

  • Responsive web design and build
  • Multi-channel digital marketing campaign management - SEO, PPC, social media, email and programmatic
  • Content creation - photography, videography and copywriting

For many of our clients we’ve not only designed and built their website, but also continue to work with them across digital marketing retainer contracts. With that in mind, it’s important that the successful candidate has a broad understanding of both marketing and web - the processes, technologies used and industry trends.

Not your typical agency, we like to think we were ahead of the ‘new normal’ pre-Covid curve! We understand work-life balance is key to a successful, happy team. Below are some of our staff perks:

  • We offer flexible working hours with the ability to work from home (within reason)
  • Unlimited holidays (within reason)
  • Yearly training allowance of £500 per employee
  • Yearly allowance of £100 for self-development (not work related)
  • Two company away days/weekends per year - one summer, one winter
  • Referral scheme - £500 if you refer a successful candidate who joins the team
  • We want to create an environment people love to work in, so new joiners will be given £100 to make their mark in the office
