Mediaworks Scotland Champions New Office Opening Following Seven Figure Growth


Jan 10, 2023

One of the UK’s largest independent digital marketing agencies plans to create an additional 30 jobs in Scotland in the next two years following the rapid expansion of its new Edinburgh base.

As a result of seven figure agency growth, Mediaworks has relocated to a new, larger space in George Street in Edinburgh city centre, where it will continue building presence for the Mediaworks Group in the region.

Mediaworks has enjoyed long-held client relationships in Scotland, but opened its first base there in early 2021. It recently celebrated its move into new, larger premises on George Street in the city centre by launching a new regular Mediaworks Mixer series, a chance for like-minded digital operators and marketing directors to share ideas in informal surroundings.

Mediaworks Scotland has also introduced media planning and buying services through new hires based in Edinburgh, further strengthening the growing demand from clients for an agency partner that offers fully integrated media and optimised marketing solutions. It has added the likes of Schuh, Scottish Water, and the R&A’s new Golf It! concept to its client portfolio in recent months.

Brett Jacobson, CEO and founder of Mediaworks, added: “I’m thrilled to see how quickly our Edinburgh office has accelerated its growth in the last 18 months. We have a fantastic team in place who have made full use of our unique IP, data and insight tools, and embraced our hard focus on customer satisfaction. It’s a model that’s clearly being very well received in the Scottish marketplace.

“Our extended operation in Scotland also plays a pivotal role across the wider agency’s ambitious expansion plans. Following growth in the North East, Yorkshire and North West of England, we’re even better positioned to closely support businesses across the UK, and further afield, and help them take ownership of their digital futures.”

Mediaworks, which counts the likes of Puma, Cath Kidston and Metro Bank among its client base, and delivers a range of services across SEO, PPC, web design, brand, content and digital PR. The rapidly growing agency currently has 200 staff across its offices in Newcastle, Leeds, Edinburgh, Manchester and London.
