Mercury to recruit 10 of Yorkshire’s brightest talents

Hull communications specialist Mercury Group is looking to recruit 10 of the region’s brightest talents after seeing demand for its services rocket over the last year.

The Anlaby-based business, which also has offices in West Yorkshire, Bedfordshire, London and Sussex, is rolling out its latest recruitment drive having secured a number of national contracts.

As a Hull and Humber Bondholder, Mercury is looking to secure the very best marketing and communications professionals and is taking an innovative approach to filling the 10 vacancies within the next three months, which will take its total staff number to 25.

Kelly Taylor, managing director at Mercury, said: “Mercury is a business founded and developed in East Yorkshire and one that has a strong track record of employing young professionals from across the region. As we continue our rapid growth across a number of sectors, including retail, energy and construction, we are looking to take on media staff, account managers, graphic designers and website developers sourced from the fantastic talent pool East Yorkshire offers.

“We have developed a strong reputation for the delivery of communication consultancy, marketing, PR, design, web, photography and print services and are delighted to be able to offer further job opportunities to within the region.

“In a move away from the norm and to break down perceived barriers the sometimes daunting recruitment process throws up, we will be holding a recruitment day to attract a variety of potential employees. Each candidate will be given the chance to showcase their skills in a work-based environment without the pressure of a formal interview.”

The impressive growth has also been the catalyst to a major restructuring of the business. Mercury Group, formerly Mercury Design & Marketing, has brought in a number of professionals who excel in their service sectors, including web guru Gareth Moore and marketing specialist Joe Booth.

The establishment of Mercury Group has allowed the formation of four individual companies; Mercury Consumer and Schools Limited, Mercury Energy and Public Sector Services Limited, Mercury Construction, Engineering and FM Limited and Mercury Rail and Transportation Limited.

Mrs Taylor says the segregation of the business to form four individual companies operating under one group will ensure sustainability and provide room for each business to grow organically.

“This is an extremely exciting time for Mercury having grown considerably over the last 12 months,” she said.

“More and more businesses are coming to us to help them raise their profile in their respective sectors and, subsequently, increase their performance and profits.

“We are extremely proud of our roots in East Yorkshire and, while our work takes us across the UK and Europe, we remain committed to the region. Our recruitment day is a perfect example of this and our determination to find unearth some of the brightest talent is fuelled by the knowledge that it has been talent from the area that has got us to where we are today.”

The details of the recruitment day will be published on our website in the coming weeks.
