Integrated agency The Bigger Boat (TBB) has announced the appointment of four new recruits — as it strives to nurture creative talent and serve its ever-expanding client roster.
Aiming to offer a career journey that will see crewmates grow and develop alongside the company, the business has recently recruited its first graphic design intern — Eve Molloy. Having previously undertaken work experience with the business, she has now joined as graphic design intern on a day-a-week basis, alongside her university studies, where she will be given the opportunity to apply her academic learnings to real-life scenarios — evolving her skillset, and career, in the process.
Meanwhile, digital marketing executive, and previous University of Huddersfield graduate Liam Hayward, will bolster the team’s capabilities – specialising in paid advertising, search engine optimisation, and conversion rate optimisation. Aiming to build upon his skills within the digital arena, Liam will be mentored by senior colleagues within the business — with a view to progressing into a paid media manager role.
As a former project manager and PRINCE2 practitioner, account manager Liam Colgan will be a key contact for clients — organising and distributing workload to ensure timely outcomes for clients.
With significant experience in the music and hospitality industries, senior account manager Danny Oliver brings a strong digital skillset. Responsible for ensuring clients achieve strategic and operational goals, Danny will drive activity while bringing added value — especially in his areas of specialism, which include marketing and management. His ambition is to become TBB’s next account director.
On the wealth of opportunity offered by the business, and the appointment of the four new recruits, managing director Andrew McCaul, comments: “It’s always exciting bringing new talent onboard — offering people the opportunity to take the next step in their careers is infinitely rewarding, and in our new recruits we see some really exciting potential.
“As a business we’re committed to creating an environment in which we nurture talent at all levels — not only is it crucial for the continued success of our business, but for the industry in general. We know that we offer something special here at TBB and we’re keen to spread the word about our ability to provide long-term careers for people at all stages of their journey.”
