A Sheffield-based digital marketing agency doubled its presence after expanding during the lockdown with new employees and clients.

Founded in 2011 by Carl Foster and Gareth Scott, Foster & Scott has a customer base spanning the leisure and tourism, manufacturing, logistics and public sectors.

The company is now launching a recruiting campaign for positions in its sales, design and development teams to meet growing demand.

In order to do justice to the growing team, the full-service creative agency has secured larger premises within the business center in Sheffield Business Park, which has been its base for the past ten years.

Carl Foster said, “It has been an extremely busy 18 months for the business as existing and new customers want to increase or maximize their digital presence in response to an increase in online activity as a result of the pandemic.

“While some of our customers have been affected by the restrictions, many others have seen a boom in demand for their service or product, and so we have worked flat out to create and run creative campaigns in a variety of sectors.

“That is why we have already welcomed a new employee to the team and are looking for further reinforcement in the coming months.”

Sheffield Business Park Manager Dawn Kennedy-Burns added, “Foster & Scott has long been a tenant of the Sheffield Business Park Business Center and it has been fantastic to see the company as both its team and its team over the past several years enlarged its customer base.

“We are pleased that Carl and Gareth have benefited from the real sense of community of the companies based in the industrial park and have decided to commit themselves to the location for the foreseeable future.”
