Plenty of juice for Tangerine with latest appointments

Plenty of juice for Tangerine with latest appointments

Leading integrated communications consultancy, Tangerine, has strengthened its consumer and B2B offering with the appointment of eight new recruits.

Earlier this year, Tangerine became a 60-strong team and isn’t stopping there – by continuing to recruit a number of practitioners at manager, executive and apprentice level, to work on its wide ranging portfolio of global and national clients.

Appointed to the consumer team is Manisha Jani, who joins from McCann Manchester as junior account manager. Manisha will play a key role in organic growth and developing the consultancy’s consumer portfolio, including Peugeot, Wilko and E.on.

With experience at London agency, Clarion PR, Melissa Clayton joins the team as account executive and will work on accounts including Atkins and JW Lees.

The B2B team has hired Aaron Eastwood from MTJ Associates, as senior account executive. Aaron will work on clients including Dulux Trade, Encirc and the Together Trust, alongside newly appointed junior account executives, Amy Cantrill and Calum Metcalfe.

Continuing to invest in young talent through its social media apprenticeship programme, The Juice Academy, Tangerine has recruited college leavers Jody Hackney, Hollie Stirrip and Sean Fielding across the B2B and B2C teams.

As part of their day-to-day roles in building and protecting the Tangerine portfolio of brands, the apprentices will be tasked with creating online content for the agency’s wide range of clients. Jody, Hollie and Sean will also regularly attend tutorials at The Juice Academy, to train in every area of social media management.

Sandy Lindsay, Tangerine’s founder and chair, said: “This is an exciting time for Tangerine, as the consultancy continues to invest in existing and upcoming talent across the board, in addition to focusing on driving new business with a number of high profile brands – we’ll soon be at the 70 mark before we know it.”

Within 12 months of launching The Juice Academy, Tangerine’s apprenticeship programme achieved a Certificate of Excellence in the Innovator of The Year category at the SABRE Awards 2014, and was highly commended in the SME Newcomer Employer of the Year category at the NAS Employer Awards 2014.
