Local Marketing Agency Expands with Business Growth Fund

Wakefield based marketing agency Northern Media, has relocated offices with the help of the Business Growth Fund, to keep up with their rapid growth, which includes gaining a number of new clients as well as making new additions to the team.

Northern Media was established 8 years ago in Wakefield by Chris Elliott and Jonathan Scott with the aim of creating a full service marketing agency that provided a range of results focused marketing services to small to medium sized businesses across the Yorkshire area.

After meeting with Wakefield Council’s business growth advisor, Northern media were able to successfully apply for a £32000 Grant from the Business Growth Fund which would contribute to the purchase of their own premises in Calder Park.

Chris Elliott, Managing Director at Northern Media Commented:

‘‘The support from our business growth advisor during the initial application and submission stages was invaluable and certainly played a significant role in helping us to purchasing our new premises. It was great to be able to meet with Pat and find out what funding opportunities there are available for local businesses.’’

“Our previous office was a great base for 5 years but we needed to move to a larger property in order to maintain our growth and plan for the coming years.

‘’The new, modern office is perfectly suited to meet our current and existing requirements. We can comfortably fit our existing team there and it also gives us additional capacity to develop the team which is a key part of our growth strategy. In addition the office is based just off Denby Dale Road in Wakefield and has great transport links to the rest of the Yorkshire area. ‘’

With the recent growth in the business, Northern media are looking ahead and will be developing the team by investing in various training courses available with the LEP skills funding.

‘’As always, we will be in direct communication with our clients and partners to ensure that they are fully updated with the changes that have taken place. However, it is back to business as usual for the Northern Media team in the new office, delivering fantastic results-driven marketing to clients across Yorkshire.

“The move marks the next phase of the business strategy and we are very excited about our future plans,” Chris concludes.
