Sales development consultancy, SalesStar UK, has appointed a digital marketing executive on a full-time basis after he completed an impressive 6 - month placement under the government’s Kickstarter scheme.

The Huddersfield-based firm, which is the UK Headquarters of SalesStar global, has promoted Oliver Eaton to full-time digital marketing executive to head up the UK’s social media marketing strategy.

He is the second young person the firm has invested in having also appointed Dylan Cowan as apprentice sales executive in early 2021.

SalesStar provides integrated solutions to enable business owners and senior sales leaders to achieve exceptional sales results.

Pete Evans, managing director said: “When we first met Oliver, we were initially impressed by the experience he had acquired at a young age, and it was an easy decision to take him on under the Kickstart scheme.

“Over the past six months, he has continually impressed us with his skills and continues to take our social media channels to new levels. He has recently started to support our global team with their video and social content, as well as working closely with our external PR agency to maximise results.

“Oliver is a fantastic addition to our team and we can’t wait to see what the future holds.”

Oliver came to SalesStar UK following completing a Broadcast Journalism degree at the University of Huddersfield. He was previously a content manager for Huddersfield Town Women’s Football Club, where he created the video and social content and which he has continued to do so on a volunteer basis whilst working at SalesStar.
