Newcastle based marketing firm Meridian Delta has ambitious plans to expand its workforce to 70, creating 25 new jobs in the North East.
The direct marketing business is going from strength to strength and predicts a £2.7m turnover for the coming year. It is one of the few companies in their sector to grow despite the tough economic climate.
The company benefited from soaring demand in 2013 and has won further significant contracts with the likes of Manchester United, Nestle, Ford and ASDA. This has led to initial plans to recruit 10 new members of staff with further posts then being created.
The majority of the jobs on offer will be for sales staff. As part of this recruitment drive the company, which is keen to help young people into work, will also be taking on apprentices.
The company also hopes to launch a mobile website and apps development division in the coming months.Those wishing to apply for these jobs will be able to do so through the Meridian Delta jobs site which has been set up to deal with the expected high number of applications.
Chris Black, sales team manager, commented: “Meridian Delta’s aim is to become the biggest direct marketing agency outside London in the next two years and we need to increase our sales headcount to increase our number of customers and re-order rates.”
Meridian Delta has an impressive 14,000 strong client portfolio. It is one of around 300 established agency members of the Direct Marketing Association (DMA), the trade association recognised as the voice of responsible and ethical direct marketing.
Chris Black continued: “We are actively scouring the North East for the most talented and hungry people within the region who can join us on the next stage of our journey. We definitely think Newcastle is the place to be!”
