Record year brings recruitment drive for ramarketing
Pharmaceutical and life sciences marketing agency, ramarketing, is launching a major recruitment initiative in the North East following record growth of 75% during 2019.
To support increasing global demand for its industry-specific expertise, the fast-growing company is looking to add 10 new members of staff to its 35-strong team across its PR and content, design and digital departments.
The agency opened its first US office in Boston this year led by its founder Raman Sehgal.
Founder Raman, who started ramarketing from his Gateshead flat in 2009, said: “This year has been an incredible year for us and we’re really proud of what we’ve managed to achieve as a team. From very humble beginnings, we’ve become a multi-million-pound global agency that supports some of the biggest names in the drug development market and proudly employs many people in the North East, North West and the US.
“As our industry reputation has continued to grow, we’ve been able to attract some major clients and exciting new projects. It’s genuinely exciting for our team to be able to work with clients from the Far East across to the West Coast of the US. This is very unusual for a Newcastle-headquartered agency, but with our growing presence in the US market, we’re expecting this to continue.
“We’ve never been a company to rest on our laurels, so we are anticipating another major step up in 2020. We’ve already established a world-class team across our three offices, but we’re now on the look-out for talented designers, developers and PR and marketing professionals that want to take their careers to the next level.”
Over the past year, the company has made several major investments including the creation of an experienced senior leadership team that includes Emma Banks, Barry Goddard and pharmaceutical entrepreneur Fiona Cruickshank OBE.
Recently listed 11th in Prolific North’s top 50 PR agencies, ramarketing is understood to be the largest agency of its type in the North East. The company is five times the size today as it was just three years ago at the end of 2016. It was also named one of the Best Places to Work in the region due to its commitment to professional development and staff welfare.
The new positions will be based in the Newcastle headquarters and the Manchester office. All vacancies can be seen on ramarketing's career page.
