Ipswich based independent digital marketing agency, Crafted Media, continues to see its recruitment drive gather pace, with a 20% increase in staff numbers in recent months.

James Giles joins as ‘pay per click’ (PPC) manager from Colchester-based Coast Digital. Also joining him from Coast Digital is Hannah Rampton as search consultant.

With a focus on increasing the search team’s capacity to handle more work, Crafted Media has also appointed Benjamin Waters as search executive. Mr Waters previously worked as a marketing executive for In Time Finance Ltd.

With 30 new client wins in 18 months, the firm also welcomes on board Andrea Child as studio administrator.

Commercial director and co-owner of Crafted Media, Brad Warwick, said: “The recruitment drive is in full swing at the moment. We are going to be equally busy on the recruitment front throughout November and December. We currently have vacancies for two to three web developers, a project manager and copywriter due to an increased demand for our services.”
