Meet the team at Moore Media
Here at Moore Media, we’ve made a promise to our clients to only recruit the very best. That’s why I think we’re one of the best communications agencies to work with.
We are a team of nine talented multimedia communications specialists, experts in supporting clients through the formulation of their strategy, rebranding, digital marketing, websites, content creation, social media managing, crisis management, media training and all things public relations. We are also a kind and friendly bunch, and pride ourselves on being a really welcoming office.
We have excellent, long-standing relationships with many journalists and partner suppliers who know they can trust and respect the Moore Media team.
Our office is in Liverpool and we are passionate Scousers (or adopted scousers… looking at you James), but our reach is both national and international. When we represent a client we undertake campaigns in whatever areas they need us, whether that’s across the UK, USA or Europe. We always take the same hyper-local approach, pick up the phone, make it relevant to the local news agenda, and kick doors open with our charm and cheeky humour.
Of course, when we’re not kicking doors in, you’ll probably find us listening and singing along to ABBA or talking about the latest Netflix dramas.
