Focus on new jobs

The Ascot Group, which includes Purplex, has announced plans to create a further 130 jobs over the next five years, taking the total employed by the group to over 200.

The news follows continued growth at the agency, which provides PR, creative and digital marketing services to companies within the glazing, building products and home improvement industries.

The jobs were announced at the firm’s annual conference held on December 5, which brought together 75 employees to review business activities in 2019 and discuss plans for 2020. During the conference, managers outlined planned investment in jobs, technology and infrastructure.

The company also revealed the latest marketing trends and technologies at the conference and presented employee achievement awards.

Ascot Group CEO and founder Andrew Scott said: “From taking on our first employee in 2007, the group has grown every year with plans for another 130 jobs over the next five years. We’ve been able to grow consistently by working closely with customers. By helping them grow, we grow too.”

To support continued growth the company has also secured additional office space.

“We’re adding further desk space, new training and conference facilities and will shortly unveil a new video and podcast production facility,” Andrew said.
