Together’s PR work is growing (and you can be a part of it!)

Friday, December 8th, 2017
Together is a leading marketing communications agency with an enviable portfolio of clients including Muller, National Trust, Interflora, Fox’s Biscuits, Tetley Tea and Pernod Ricard.

In late 2016 we started to expand our work in PR and now have an impressive line up of accounts including Fox’s Biscuits and two brands within Samworth Brothers, one of the UK’s largest food manufacturers, within their ready meal and sausage divisions. We provide planning, strategy and implementation for press relations, new product sampling with journalists, celebrity endorsements, photography and filming shoots, and integration with our social media campaigns for each brand.

PR is headed up by Beth Stanford who has nurtured and grown this work over the last two years. We are looking for a talented Account Manager with strong PR experience to take over these accounts and look after the National Trust, another important client. The role will need an ambitious, motivated and passionate individual, who loves delivering great results and building strong relationships.

In return we’re willing to offer a great close-knit sociable team, beer Fridays, Together away days, and of course, fantastic opportunities for career progression and support for growth and development.

While mainly PR, the role will also involve working on some really exciting integrated projects encompassing experiential, sampling, social, digital and traditional press campaigns.

If you’ve read this far you’re obviously pretty interested, so if you’d like to have a quick chat to find out more about the role drop us a line with ‘PR Account Manager’ in the title.

New client: Busy Bees

Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

Busy Bees is a top global nursery and education provider with more than 340 nurseries in the UK, as well as a further 148 sites in Canada, Singapore, Malaysia and China.

Over the past 34 years the group’s grown and grown, acquiring more than 480 nurseries around the world.  So, to support Busy Bees’ evolution and mainly focusing on the UK, we’ve been appointed to move the brand forward.

We’ll be using Busy Bees’ new brand proposition, ‘Seriously happy childcare’, as a starting point to create a distinctive new identity. Through a new look and feel, tone of voice, and photographic style, Together will bring the brand bang up to date and amplify its founding principle: to provide great quality childcare to hardworking parents looking for a great start for their children.  This identity will roll out across all the brand’s collateral, from the website to nursery brochures and signage.

JT, one of Together’s two partners, said: “Busy Bees is a fantastic brand that offers us some exciting challenges. With the new identity, we’ll not only need to create something that juxtaposes that real warmth of the group with expertise and professionalism, but also something that their widespread teams and nurseries really buy into. We can’t wait to get started.”

Jitin Topiwala, Sales and Marketing Director at Busy Bees, said: “Chemistry is essential with a project of this scale. After meeting the agency and seeing their approach, we knew a creative partnership with Together would allow us to realise our ambitions for the brand.

“This is a hugely exciting time for Busy Bees and we’re looking forward to working with Together to bring our brand to life.”

Fox's Biscuits logo with new proposition

Ready for an exciting update? In case you haven’t heard, we’ve been appointed as Fox’s Biscuits’ lead agency!

Even if you’d not come across that little piece of news, you’ve definitely heard of Fox’s. They’re one of the UK’s most well-known biscuit brands, famous for some of the nation’s favourite sweet treats including Party Rings, Rocky, and Crunch Creams.

Having spent the past few years headlining their marketing with a character, Vinnie the Panda, the brand’s now going through a transformation underpinned by a new proposition: ‘Lovingly baked since 1843.’ As part of this new phase for the brand Fox’s has chosen us to lead their strategy and creative, including digital, social, in-store, advertising and PR. Everything from the tone of voice to the photography will be getting a shakeup, and we’re delighted that we’ll be the ones to do it.

While we’ve worked with Fox’s in the past on projects including packaging, new product development, and branding, this is a huge new step in our relationship with the brand. To stay up to date with our work, follow along on our social channels.

Now we’re off to roll up our sleeves; this is where the real work begins!
