Mediaworks eyes £10 million turnover and 50 new hires in 2021

Digital marketing agency Mediaworks is looking to deliver more than £10 million in revenues this year after a record-breaking 2020.

Shaking off COVID-19 uncertainty, the Gateshead-based company has recently added 44 new staff across its operations in the North East, Leeds, London and Edinburgh, taking its total headcount to 132.

Mediaworks recently rebranded and company founder and chief executive, Brett Jacobson, says success over the last 12 months will help crystallise the agency’s strategy moving forward.

Brett said: “It’d be an understatement to say 2020 was a worrying time for everyone.

“However, in adversity we found our clear sense of purpose. We’ve been doing it for years, but it became very clear in the last 12 months that the work we do enables clients to take ownership of their own futures.

“When people aren’t sure what’s round the corner in these uncertain times, we offer a very reassuring view of the digital opportunities ahead.”

The recent rebrand was completed by Mediaworks’ own branding division based in Leeds and has manifested in a new website.

The company has picked up a string of national clients such as Cath Kidson, Dune London, Johnson & Johnson, Miele and LADbible Group in the last 12 months.

Brett added: “From independent corner stores to high street giants, the last 12 months have shown everyone that future business success is about having a positive digital presence.

“Our partners were all trying to figure out what their futures looked like and we had absolute clarity on the answers for them.”

Mediaworks is looking to create 50 new roles this year, with new Manchester and Dublin offices in the pipeline.
