Specialist PPC agency Mabo has reached a major recruitment milestone by taking on its 50th team member.
Mabo has grown significantly over the last six years, with award wins in the UK and Europe giving the Middlesbrough-based firm the need to hire regularly to keep on top of the huge demand for their award-winning service.
The talented team at Mabo are made up of people with years of experience in the digital marketing industry, including marketing and media graduates and apprentices.
Mabo operations director Rob Jackson said: “It’s great to be breaking such a milestone in our company’s growth and particularly apt that it is as we employ two new apprentices.
“We’ve made a habit of giving people their first career opportunity and the two newest appointments will be looking to follow the example set by our existing staff; particularly the three people who have recently completed apprenticeships and earned themselves permanent roles with Mabo.”
This time last year Mabo’s staff numbers were at 30, with three apprentices., but the company has added a further 21 n the last 12 months.
Rob addsed: “We’ve had fantastic success in the past through the apprenticeship placements we’ve offered with the apprentices hugely benefitting from the combination of on-the-job training and studying for a recognised qualification, as well as being able to earn as they train. It gives us the opportunity to take on some of the regions most talented and driven young people and mould them into key employees.”
Mabo, who work with the likes of Bannatynes, Lifestyle Fitness and JT Atkinson, is expected to see its multi-directional growth continue over the next year.
Managing director Lee Mableson said: “We’ve had success in growing mabo from day one and I’m happy to say, even with tough market conditions for businesses lately, we’ve continued our growth.
“We’ve recently invested in another floor in the Albert North building where we’re based and have recruited more staff to facilitate further growth.
“It really comes down to our business ethics and great staff that we have as to the reason we’ve been successful, without them we can’t deliver our award-winning service.
“We’re looking forward to seeing how we advance over the next couple of years, it’s an exciting journey we’re on.”
