Bristol digital agency shortlisted for coveted award
A successful Bristol digital marketing agency is celebrating after its comprehensive on the job development led to a team member being shortlisted for a coveted national award.
Strategy Digital’s client manager Alex Faux (24) has been shortlisted for the UK Search Awards Young Search Professional of the Year award, awarded to an individual that has developed and excelled in the field of digital marketing.
The agency developed its internship scheme - which Alex joined in 2011 – with the objective of supporting and developing young talent for a very specialised – and rapidly growing – sector, as Executive Chairman John Courtney explains,
“Our internship scheme is a very hands on and varied introduction to digital marketing, and participants are able to work with a wide range of clients from all manner of sectors, supported by our in-house experts in copywriting, digital PR, social media, Pay Per Click and Search Engine Optimisation.
“We find that developing our own staff in house to become digital marketing specialists gives excellent results, helping to deliver the extremely high standards clients expect and provide those with a genuine interest in, and talent for digital marketing with a superb basis for a long career with us.
“Having a team member shortlisted for this extremely prestigious and coveted award is the icing on the cake for us in terms of staff development and we are very proud - we also wish Alex all the best at the award ceremony later this week.”
The shortlist is the latest success for the agency which in the past year has achieved Google partner status, and expanded the range of services it offers to include digital PR and social media consultancy.
Alex credits his success to the support he has received from the Strategy Digital team, as he continues,
“I’m delighted with this nomination on a personal level, but am also really pleased for the company. The Strategy Digital team has supported and educated me, enabling me to get where I am today, from intern to client manger with my own team to support and develop – and what’s more they are a lovely gang to work with.”
