Local firm looking to grow

The Samuel James Group is proud to announce that they are expanding their team, by welcoming on board Katie Hall, as its first Marketing and PR Assistant, due to the company’s recent business wins. Katie, who lives in Buckshaw, will be assisting with the promotion of their client’s brands and products, as well as liaising and building relationships with these clients.

She joins the team as part of her business experience during her year in industry, which is a key element of her BA (Hons) Degree in Fashion Promotion at UCLAN, where she is studying the marketing mix, customer analysis, social media campaigns, customer profiles and competitor analysis.

“I have already gained valuable experience working in marketing and social media for a Manchester based fashion brand, supporting the company’s social media channels, projects and events, I also created graphic and written content to promote interaction, as well as recruiting and building relationships with celebrities, bloggers and influencers. I now intend to use this experience to benefit The Samuel James Group’s clients” confirmed Katie.

Samuel Whitear, Director:     “The Samuel James Group is delighted to welcome its first Intern from UCLAN (the University of Central Lancashire), Katie Hall. The business is a recent Start Up but it is already starting to capture new business in its core markets of publications, digital and traditional marketing and helping customers better engage with its core stakeholders. The addition of Katie will help us deliver an even better service to both our existing and potential customers.”

After 34 years working in numerous operational and communications disciplines for three FTSE companies (Yorkshire Electricity; Meggitt and BAE Systems), at over a dozen locations, on 24 November 2016, I became the inaugural editor of Business Lancashire. Business Lancashire is a good news, Lancashire focused, business website and daily newsletter. It is a partnership between The Samuel James Group and the North and Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce. Over the years, I have written hundreds of press releases, features for trade magazines, copy for websites and brochures, edited in-house magazines and newsletters, as well as presenting a radio programme on Chorley FM. This experience has given me the ideal background for editing Business Lancashire.
