Northern Media are delighted to welcome Adrian Richards to the business this month, as he joins the team as an Account Executive.
Having graduated in 2017 with a 2:1 degree in Advertising from Northumbria University, Adrian was keen to start a career in marketing and approached Northern Media in August with the aim of gaining work experience and developing his skills and knowledge.
“We are always on the lookout for talented individuals and I could tell that Adrian was extremely keen to get involved in digital marketing, so we were happy to accommodate him and give him hands-on experience and exposure of working within an agency environment”, comments Chris Elliott, Northern Media’s Managing Director.
Over the last few months, Northern Media were impressed by Adrian’s knowledge, willingness to learn and work ethic so had no hesitation in offering him a full-time position as an Account Executive.
Adrian will now support the Account Managers on a variety of tasks and services ranging from producing content for SEO campaigns to managing social media accounts for Northern Media’s clients.
“Adrian has slotted into the business really well and I am really impressed with how he has started at Northern Media.
“I liked Adrian from the first minute I met him. He is clearly focused on carving out a successful career in marketing and his willingness to learn and develop was exactly what we were looking for.
“I look forward to seeing his development in both the short and long-term at Northern Media,” Chris concludes.
Recruiting new talent is something Northern Media have continuously looked to do, and we have an excellent history of investing and developing young people from a variety of disciplines, including graphic design, social media and content writing, and this will continue in the future.
