Record year at BIG Partnership

Record year at BIG Partnership

Turnover at the marketing agency has increased by £1.4m to £8.8m in the year to May 31st 2018, its highest-ever.

The agency, which employs 107 people, has also seen profits rise to £1.4m after investing heavily in its creative and digital teams.

Major account wins across all offices have been complemented with an increase in marketing-led accounts with existing clients including Loganair, Stewart Milne Group and global energy skills body OPITO.

The company’s Manchester office, which opened in 2015, has doubled profits in the last year after new wins including packaging enhancement specialist API Group, leading planning consultancy Turley and an expanded remit with legal firm Addleshaw Goddard to support its Manchester and Leeds offices.

BIG director Allan Barr said: “Winning more integrated accounts, where we combine digital, marketing, design and PR to make a measurable impact for clients, has significantly boosted performance this year.  

“As well as new account wins, we’ve also expanded the range of services we provide to existing clients, which has made a major contribution to fee income. Increasingly, clients are looking for an agency which is adept at combining SEO, PPC, social media and PR to give returns that they can measure, so we’ve worked hard to recruit really effective, experienced experts in these fields.

“We have a hugely talented team which works incredibly hard for clients and it’s important that they share in the success of the business, so we’re genuinely thrilled to be paying out our largest-ever staff bonus across the entire company.”
