Moore Media: An update from Jayne Moore
I have been trying to speak to each of you before sending this as you are a valued client and friend, so if I have not yet managed to get to you, I am sorry.
After almost 11 years at Moore Media, our amazing Richard Lackey has decided to move on to pastures new! He has taken a role as head of PR for Weightman’s Solicitors, but before he starts in October he is off on a well-deserved cruise around the Mediterranean.
I am sure that you will join me in wishing him every success.
I want to take this opportunity to publicly thank Richard for his loyalty and dedication over the past decade. We are the agency we are, thanks to his humour and high standards, so I am very grateful and wish him all the best in the years to come. It has never been dull!
But of course, as he moves on, it has created an opening for a new approach to the PR team. We have made the decision to fully integrate the PR service into a more rounded digital communications team. This team will be led by the wonderful Naomi Taylor who has accepted a promotion to communications director. Our model has always been to deliver a best practice approach, placing the needs of our clients first to help them realise their vision and achieve their objectives through a combination of PR and digital marketing tactics. Our new approach will see these elements integrated under the one umbrella of communications, strengthening our offering as a full-service agency.
Naomi has been with us for four years, and she has a dynamic experience as a journalist and as a digital expert, having been part of our digital marketing team since joining us in 2019. Naomi is supported by Jack Connor, Chelsea Yearsley and the amazing Jack Southern, who more recently joined our team as a communications assistant after completing our Digital Skills Bootcamp and an internship through the LJMU Graduate Futures programme.
During the earlier days at Moore Media Naomi joined us as a work experience student when she was doing her GCSEs before she chose to study broadcast journalism at university. I have since watched her grow into the talented young woman she is today. Recently, Naomi was appointed to the Future Impact Board, helping to provide a voice for upcoming business leaders and the next generation and I can’t wait to see how she develops, and thrives, in this position.
In other news, over the last few years, we have been delivering Digital Marketing Bootcamps and Kickstart schemes for the Department for Work and Pensions, and our marketing director, Lizzie O’Neill has led this as a development pipeline for future talent.
Supporting the next generation, Lizzie is currently finalising her recruitment plans to bring a number of the graduates from Bootcamp into our team. This ensures we give the best start to a group of young people whose early careers have been affected by the pandemic. We are grateful to all our students who showed so much commitment and willingness to learn.
While we are able to select the brightest and best of each of the alumni we have personally trained, we are genuinely passionate about the people and their outcomes and are driven by the opportunities we are fortunate to present to our young starters.
We have seen huge successes with Caitlin Yeung and Jack Southern who joined us via this route, so I am excited to see how the next generation brings in fresh, digital-first ideas for your campaigns.
I want to assure you that we have a clear plan for how we take the work that we deliver for you to the next level and continue to focus on delivering high-quality, brave and bold campaigns for each of you that we serve, supporting your growth plans as we do.
I will be working through catching up with you on a one-to-one basis, however, should you have any issue that you want to talk with me about, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book time for us to meet face to face.
CEO, Moore Media
