Skout expands with two new recruits

In addition to a host of new client wins this year, we have also expanded the troops and have welcomed Lottie Buckley as account manager and Juliet Haley as account executive to the team.

To support our award-winning work in integrated B2B PR and our growing client base, we were on the lookout for two experienced candidates who demonstrated enthusiasm, a passion for PR and who would be a ‘great fit’ for the business.

Claire Lamb, director said: ““We have ambitious growth plans in place for the future of Skout, and our two new recruits are a key step forward in meeting our expansion goals.”

Lottie Buckley joins us from Johnson Reed, a business finance company based in Stockport where she spent two years as marketing and communications manager, and prior to that she worked at a Manchester based PR agency.

“I am really happy to be continuing my journey in B2B PR with Skout. I love its genuine ‘natural storytelling’ approach to PR and look forward to expanding on my experience in the financial sector in an agency with such a wealth of interesting and diverse clients,” said Lottie.

As a fitting contrast, her fellow new arrival Juliet joins us after spending time working across two agencies, Red Carpet Communications based in Bedfordshire and KBA PR in Soho. With a background in consumer PR, Juliet is looking forward to broadening her knowledge of the B2B sector and getting stuck into her new role.

“I’m delighted to be joining Skout at this stage in my career. With such a varied and growing list of clients it’s an exciting place to be.”

Managing director, Rob Skinner added: “Both Lottie and Juliet are well suited to the Skout ethos thanks to the enthusiastic attitude and self-starter approach that they both share. They also bring unique but complementary skillsets with them, which we will no doubt benefit from hugely.”

“At Skout we’ve always been focused on steady and sustainable growth where we put clients’ interests first.”

Why was PR your chosen career? It wasn’t! I have always been slightly obsessed with the media though. Since reading the news in the mocked-up news studio at Bradford’s National Media Museum as a child, the addiction has stuck.

When you’ve worked in a B2B PR agency for over 25 years, it’s easy to forget that the ‘turbulence’ we experience daily isn’t the norm for many. This is because every agency day is different, you never fully know what to expect, and deadlines can be ludicrously short.  Growing agencies like us deal with a lot of uncertainty. The biggest...
