Pursuit Marketing creates 40 jobs following funding
Pursuit Marketing has secured £450,000 from RSA to continue expanding the business across the city.
The funding deal comes after a series of commercial wins and increasing demand from clients across the globe.
The firm is now actively recruiting to fill more than 40 new positions at its headquarters in Finnieston.
The lead-generation agency, previously recognised as Scotland’s Best Employer and Glasgow’s Best Workplace, is seeking telemarketing consultants to deliver UK campaigns as well as bilingual and native speakers fluent in a range of languages including Spanish, French, German, Italian and key Nordic territories.
The firm is also seeking candidates for senior positions in HR, digital marketing and account management.
The recruitment drive will enable the firm to service a growing international client roster, as well as activate overseas expansion.
With a second office in Spain set to open this year, the new multi-lingual recruits for both telemarketing and digital marketing roles will also be tasked with developing the company’s international client portfolio and creating collateral suitable for local markets.
Patrick Byrne, CEO at Pursuit Marketing, said: “This is an incredibly exciting time for our business - we are going through our fastest period of growth to date.
“The funding package from RSA will ensure we capitalise on our market-leading position and continue to grow from strength-to-strength.
“Our new employees will help us to retain momentum and allow us to continue offering unparalleled demand generation service within the technology sector.”
Widely considered one of the country’s top employers, winning a raft of awards for its approach to promoting a healthy work-life balance, Pursuit Marketing offers four-day weeks for full-time pay, daily fitness classes and term-time only employment to parents who require time off during the school holidays.
Within the last year, employees have also been whisked off on all expenses paid trips to Barcelona and Tenerife as a reward for their hard work.
Through its work in championing flexible working, Pursuit Marketing was named SME Employer of the Year by Family Friendly Working Scotland in 2017 and 2018 and the UK’s Best SME Employer 2018 by Working Families.
