10 new appointments signal further growth and office move for specialist PR firm

10 new appointments signal further growth and office move for specialist PR firm

Yorkshire-based communications firm Scriba PR is building on a year of significant growth with ten new client wins – contributing to an additional 125 hours of project work each month.

Having welcomed 19 new accounts to its roster in 2019 already, and in the wake of its biggest year to-date – both in terms of increasing customer and employee numbers – the nine-strong team is now looking to better the 24 new project wins secured in 2018 alone.

With new faces all set to join the team before the end of the year, the B2B PR specialist has moved from a 750 sq ft office within the eaves of Heritage Exchange, Wellington Mills in Lindley, to a 1,200 sq ft open-plan loft space within the same historic complex.

Katie Mallinson, Scriba PR founder and managing director said: “We thought 2018 was a successful year with 24 client wins and three new colleagues, but we’re on course to go even further in 2019. I hope that we’re now becoming synonymous with telling the story of some of Europe’s ‘undiscovered’ B2B firms.

“This year is very poignant for me. Exactly five years ago, I was doubling the size of our first tiny office with a mixture of excitement and trepidation. This month, we’ve moved into a brand-new space – twice as large again – and we’re ready to begin the next chapter.”

The Huddersfield-headquartered organisation continues to expand its international remit, with a retained appointment from Collingwood Learning. The global theatre-in-education company – which tackles a range of challenges faced by young people – was looking for a partner to support its aim of reaching five million children worldwide by 2025.

Chris Simes, managing director of Collingwood Learning said: “We strive to educate children on a range of social influences in places such as Australia, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Peru and the USA.

“We’re incredibly passionate about helping companies make a difference via education, delivering on their CSR objectives using the power of theatre. As such, when we were looking to appoint an agency to further our own ambitions, we needed a team which was just as enthusiastic – and we found that in Scriba PR.”

Trenches Law, which delivers legal counsel, managed wayleave services and contracts negotiation to some of the UK’s largest telecoms operators, wholesalers and resellers, has also enrolled the award-winning PR firm to manage all communications and social media activity.

Sharon McDermott, managing director at Trenches Law explained: "I chose to appoint Scriba after seeing a tech peer’s profile increase dramatically in the media and on LinkedIn. After speaking to him to find out how he’d done it – he put me in touch with Katie [Mallinson, MD at Scriba PR].

“In the short time we’ve worked together, I’ve been impressed by the team’s attitude, communication and output. The quality of work that Scriba produces, while remaining mindful of deadlines and results, never fails to deliver."

Harrogate’s Clearpoint Recycling Ltd, a trusted materials – plastic, paper and metal – broker, has appointed the Scriba PR team to oversee website work alongside regional and trade PR.

Sarah Sanpher, developments director at Clearpoint Recycling commented: “Operating in a complex and technical space, we wanted a communications partner who really understood our world. What made Scriba stand out was the team’s passion and extensive experience in our sector. They really took the time to get under the skin of our proposition and tailor a strategy that will help us achieve our long-term objectives.”

Manufacturer of firefighting and rescue vehicles, Angloco Limited, has enlisted Scriba to assist with profile-raising in order to support the recruitment of 12 new staff – as the global firm aims to double its turnover. 

Ahead of its launch, creative digital content agency Fat Panda has enlisted the copywriters to oversee the drafting of its website, as well as client case studies and several blog posts. Tech firm Boostify, meanwhile, has re-enlisted the Scriba collective to provide PR and copywriting support to further raise its brand profile, following an inaugural comms project when the company was first founded.

Other significant appointments come from Brighouse-based wealth management specialist Louise Woollard Financial, while alongside its usual B2B briefs – and given the firm’s other great passion is food – Scriba is also providing ongoing PR support to help drive website and social content for popular Honley restaurant, Mustard & Punch and its three neighbouring sites.

The news follows the communication agency's shortlisting in the coveted The Drum PR Awards. Scriba has received recognition in the long running and retained PR account category, for its work with its global shredder manufacturing client, UNTHA.

"I chose to appoint Scriba after seeing a tech peers profile increase dramatically in the media and on LinkedIn. After speaking to him to find out how hed done it he put me in touch with Katie."
