An East Midlands PR agency continues to expand its team with the appointment of a new PR account manager, Lucy Budge, from West Bridgford.
Lucy is the latest recruit to the Jennie Holland PR team – which has offices in Nottingham and Lincoln – and provides public relations, communications, social media, digital marketing and business development services across the UK.
To manage a raft of new business wins, Lucy has joined the company at a time of continued growth and will be based in the Nottingham office in the Lace Market area of the city.
West Bridgford-based Lucy brings a varied skill-set of PR and journalism to the role. Having graduated with a master’s degree in Journalism, she worked as a journalist in the features department at the Nottingham Post before making the move into public relations.
She has since built up years of experience and strategic expertise in delivering results-driven PR services and has worked with national and regional businesses in sectors including food & drink, lifestyle, retail, sport, live entertainment, transportation, property and construction and education.
Lucy said: “With a passion for delivering creative ideas and hard-hitting copy, I was looking for the right position to utilise my skills and further progress my career. Jennie Holland PR is a dynamic agency that is making its mark in the sector and I’m pleased to be joining the team and working with its portfolio of great brands.
“Using my background in both journalism and PR, I will be working with clients to develop and fine tune their communication strategies to bring measurable results.”
Since its launch in 2016, Jennie Holland PR has seen significant expansion within the industry – growing to a team of six PR professionals and managing PR services in sectors including charity, property and construction, food and drink, FMCG, retail and professional services.
Managing director, Jennie Holland, commented: “We are content creators and we love to share and champion all that is brilliant about our clients.
“I was drawn to Lucy’s expertise but also her proactive and warm personality. Our results allow us to keep growing and with Lucy’s previous work and life experience, she will be a valuable asset to myself and the rest of the team.”
As part of the firm’s growth strategy, Jennie Holland PR plans to recruit further over the next 12 months providing jobs in both Nottingham and Lincoln and potentially remotely.
