Search Laboratory, one of the UK’s leading digital marketing agencies with offices in Leeds, London and New York, has extended its partnership with Google after being invited to apply for official Google International Growth Partner status, one of just a handful of agencies to be selected for the programme in the UK.

This new accreditation recognises the agency’s international expertise and extensive international offering and comes less than a year after being awarded official Sales Partner status across the full Google Marketing platform.

Having been hand-selected to become a part of Google’s International Growth platform, team members at Search Laboratory were required to undertake a rigorous programme of training culminating in a series of exams, in order to achieve the accreditation.

Chris Attewell, CEO said: “Our latest Google accreditation follows on from a proven successful track record of innovation in this area, success in implementing digital strategies internationally, and of course, dedication from our hard-working team. We are delighted to have been selected to be one of just a small group of agencies in the UK to have been approached to become a part of the programme.

“Being a member of the Google International Growth Programme gives us exclusive access to advanced training, tools and resources, something we’re excited to be able to bring to the table in order to further improve our services and offering to international clients.”
