Shropshire Online Marketing agency wins second international contract in 12 months

Kerr Recruitment, one of the UK’s leading and most established multi-lingual recruitment agencies, based in London, has announced a partnership with Shropshire based online marketing agency, Positive Advertising. The award winning agency has been chosen to re-invigorate the Kerr brand with a new identity and create a digital marketing strategy including the build of a new multi-lingual website as part of Kerr Recruitment’s five year international growth plan.

"Positive Advertising is thrilled to have been chosen as Kerr Recruitment's digital marketing agency", said Zoe Day, new business director for Positive Advertising. "Kerr Recruitment has been established since 1969 and has a clear vision and confidence in the brand's growth trajectory into Europe, based on their success to date"

Kerr Recruitment specialise in providing multi-lingual personnel throughout a range of sectors and industries on a temporary, contract and permanent basis. With the opening of a new office in Lyon, they have exciting growth plans with ambitions to have a presence in other European cities.

Jasmine Enteghami-Coulon, operations director for Kerr said "Positive Advertising share the creativity, marketing knowledge and progressive thinking we strive to exemplify in our work. We are excited about our marketing partnership with Positive Advertising in helping us make our vision a reality."

Positive Advertising is a full service marketing and advertising agency with clients across a wide array of industries from financial, agricultural, automotive, leisure and retail and has also recently been appointed to look after the PR for Kerr Recruitment’s parent company, gap personnel – one of the UK’s largest industrial labour providers.

Gary Dewhurst, CEO of gap personnel and Kerr Recruitment added: “English may be the language of the world, but the skill of candidates having multiple languages has now become business critical.

“Inter-culturalism and multi-linguism can perfectly reflect business world realities and can contribute substantially to growth, jobs and mobility in Europe and the rest of the world.

“Marketing will play a very important role in raising awareness to organisations about our multi-lingual candidates”.

The Kerr Recruitment contract is the second international contract win for Positive Advertising after being chosen as the digital agency for Colombia's largest insurance broker with the help of the UKTI.
