Purpose-driven communications agency Social has made several new appointments and promotions within its Northern offices.

New arrivals include account manager Beth Chaplow and account executive Tilly Bratton, while Joshua Hammond has been promoted from senior account manager to account director and Brandon Henderson has been promoted to senior account executive.

Beth has joined after four years at an agency in Leeds, having worked in the property, education, travel and tourism, and food and drink sectors. She was drawn to Social because of its strong credentials in property and the built environment.

“Social’s purpose driven communications strategy and established reputation within the property and built environment sectors was what really drew me to the business.” said Beth.

Tilly joined earlier this year as account executive after completing an MA in International Public and Political Communication at the University of Sheffield.

Joshua has been with the firm since September 2021, having previously worked as a journalist at Newsco Insider and The CN Group in his career.

“After more than a decade as a journalist, I was initially a little apprehensive about joining a PR company, but knew that Social was the right place for me to learn and grow,” said Joshua.

Brandon joined Social last year, having completed an MA in Political Communication at the University of Leeds and worked as a Parliamentary Intern to Dame Diana Johnson MP.

Pete Wrathmell, director said: “We’re delighted to see new faces arriving with Beth and Tilly bringing a mixture of experience and fresh ideas to our team. And it’s always pleasing to reward excellent performance, which Joshua and Brandon have delivered in their time with us so far. I look forward to seeing all of them continue to thrive in their roles as we enter our next phase of growth.”

Social is currently recruiting for an account manager and account executive, both based in its Leeds office.
