Unprecedented growth sees Leeds agency recruit 25 new starters

Leeds based digital agency, Search Laboratory, has revealed impressive growth following the recruitment of 25 new starters to the integrated agency. As part of the recruitment drive, the company has invested in 19 UK based roles, and 6 positions in the US. The growth has been accredited to the company’s innovative approach to integrated services, which is growing in popularity amongst leading businesses across the UK and US.

Brands already adopting this new integrated approach with the agency include clients such as Ann Summers. The recruits will work to service such clients across disciplines including PPC, SEO, and international digital marketing, alongside the agency’s already 130 strong team of employees across the Leeds and New York offices. The move sees Search Laboratory strengthen its vision to spearhead the integration of digital communications to support its client’s business growth.

Lizzie Stevenson, who joins the company as a Content and Online PR Project Manager, has moved from the US to Leeds to work on the development of content and online PR activity for Search Laboratory’s growing US client-base. Lizzie comments, “The marketing industry as a whole is constantly changing and adapting to new tech and digital updates, and so working for a company like Search Laboratory, which is renowned as being one of the best-integrated digital agencies in the country, is a great opportunity to make a real difference for clients and remain ahead of the curve.”

Ian Harris, Search Laboratory’s Founder, said: “The business has grown from strength to strength over the past 13 years here in Leeds, and we are now in a position where we are on the cusp of a new growth cycle. It is great that we are in a position to continue growing at such a rapid pace.

“Thanks to The Sunday Times best employers list, we are able to attract the top talent in the area and really invest in our staff. This, in turn, ensures we are providing an innovative, practical and effective suite of digital solutions for our clients. We are confident this growth is set to continue as more and more businesses become aware of the opportunities integrated digital marketing presents.”
