MARKETING agency Workhouse has signalled plans to continue its recruitment drive in the coming months with the hiring of two new senior staff members.

The Ribchester-based agency hopes that appointing John Paul Toher as head of digital and Ryan Gibson as social and content lead is just the beginning of a new phase for the company with an expanded digital operation.

Workhouse is now looking for digital project managers and account managers to join its team.

Managing director Martin Meadows, said: “I’m very excited by these appointments, which are part of the long-term vision for Workhouse and demonstrate our commitment to investing in the best digital expertise for clients in the built environment sector and beyond.

“Clients really value our holistic view of the marketing landscape, identifying the channels and technologies that are most suitable for engaging their audiences in new and innovative ways to deliver memorable brand experiences.

Mr Toher has worked managing the digital output for various clients in the past, including Asda, Ronseal and BASF while Mr Gibson has worked with clients such as Dulux, Revolutions Bars and Pets At Home over the past ten years.

Mr Meadows said: “Digital plays an important part of the marketing mix, and with John Paul and Ryan on board, we’re well-equipped to work with clients in a much more strategic and collaborative way to help them overcome today’s business challenges.”

Workhouse already employs 30 people and will hope to welcome more new team members soon.

Established in 1992, it currently works with clients such as Stax Trade Centres, Crown Paints, Topps Tiles, Mix Interiors and Sanipex Group

Mr Toher said: “I’m delighted to be joining an agency with such a rich heritage, but one that also has its eyes firmly on the future with a collective vision for delivering the very best work for our clients.”
