Ellen Dixon has joined the city centre agency as a Junior Client Partner, to support Creo’s expanding roster of clients.
The company, which was founded in 2014, delivers comms, creative and content support to a wide range of organisations across the North of England.
Ellen graduated from Newcastle University in 2021 with a BA in Combined Honours Media, Communications, Culture and Film.
After graduating, she decided to further her studies at the University by completing her master’s degree in International Multimedia Journalism, graduating in December 2022 with a distinction.
She joined Creo Comms as part of a work placement in November 2022 before going on to secure a two-month internship with the agency through Creative Fuse, a collaborative project delivered by all five North East Universities.
Throughout the work placement and internship, Ellen quickly became a valuable member of the team and became fully immersed within the fast-paced and exciting environment of working within a creative marketing agency.
Following the completion of the internship, Ellen was offered a full-time position as a junior client partner to work collaboratively with both the comms and creative team, as the business continues to steadily grow.
Speaking about the role, she said: “I am so excited to officially be part of the team. I have learned so much through my placement and internship, working with a wide range of clients in an agency setting and working alongside the Creo team has really been a dream.
“I am so appreciative of the support the team at Creo have given me as a fresh graduate. I found it extremely difficult when I graduated to find a full-time position, especially after Covid, but Louise [Bradford] has opened so many doors for me. It really means so much to see businesses invest in young, local talent.
“I know I will continue to grow my skills and experience here at Creo and I am so excited to see what the future has in store.”
Ellen is the second new recruit for Creo Comms in the last six months, adding to their ever-growing team working on projects for clients including Legal & General, Sunderland City Council, Zenzic, National Grid, UK Land Estates, Age UK, and a host of others.
The agency has continued to thrive and has seen an increased demand for its services, offering PR, communications support, design, social media marketing, web design and video production.
“As well as being trusted with working on some pretty key client projects, I’ve also been learning a whole host of new skills which, prior to joining, I would never have realised were even part of the job,” she added.
“From conducting video interviews and editing them to writing briefs for the design for corporate animations and logos and getting to grips with SEO, I’ve absolutely loved the opportunities put my way so far and am looking forward to learning even more as we continue to grow.”
Louise Bradford, managing director of Creo Comms, added: “We’re thrilled to welcome Ellen to the team, it’s really lovely to have another member on board.
“She really impressed us during her time on placement with Creo, fitting in brilliantly with the team and bringing such enthusiasm to the role. She is a real talent and we’re excited to support her to grow her skills as a permanent part of the team.”
