Digital marketing agency ClickThrough has recruited four new staff as its expansion continues in 2013.
ClickThrough added a new web development department at the end of 2012, to work alongside its SEO, PPC and content marketing teams, to offer clients an end-to-end Internet marketing service.
The new recruits have been brought on board to help ClickThrough strengthen its Internet marketing teams as it looks to become Europe’s number one provider of digital marketing technology and services.
Alison Booth and Anisha Birdi joined ClickThrough’s PPC team in January. Kyri Koni has supported the SEO team since December, and he was joined by another new starter, Thomas Lyon, on Monday (January 14).
Three of the new staff – Anisha, Kyri and Thomas – were recruited as graduate trainees after impressing ClickThrough bosses at the firm’s first graduate recruitment day in September.
The day was organised to give young university graduates a chance to get noticed in an extremely competitive job market. The day was attended by more than 50 graduates, keen to show off their marketing skills.
The hopefuls were scored on a number of tasks, including metadata writing, keyword generation and team-building activities, with Anisha, Kyri and Thomas coming out on top.
Alison Booth, ClickThrough’s new paid search manager, joins the company from digital marketing agency NetBooster, where she worked as implementation manager.
Alison has years of experience in paid search, working extensively with fashion and retail clients, and also brings German and Spanish translation skills to ClickThrough.
John Newton, ClickThrough Marketing’s chief operating officer, said: “After a very positive 2012, which saw the company continue to grow in reputation and stature, we were keen to ensure the trend continued in 2013.
“We’ve invested in training for all staff, meaning we now have 12 Google Analytics qualified staff, and nine with Google AdWords Qualifications.
“The new staff we’ve taken on board will allow us to continue to build on our Internet marketing expertise and experience, as we strive to keep delivering great results to clients throughout 2013.
“Fostering young talent has always been an integral part of the ClickThrough ethos, and the fact that three of our new starters are graduate recruits reflects our commitment to finding the most promising candidates, and infusing them with knowledge.
“We’ve already seen their problem-solving skills and hardworking attitudes in action at our graduate recruitment day, so we’re sure they’ll soon be invaluable assets to the ClickThrough team.”
