Communications group Beattie is creating six new jobs in Edinburgh following a pick-up in overseas business.
Beattie, which has eight offices UK-wide, says it is expanding its presence in the capital as foreign clients look to benefit from the city’s growing reputation as an international leader in digital marketing.
“Until now we have exclusively had a PR team operating in Edinburgh,” explained Laurna Woods, group managing director of Beattie. However, we have won so much business from new and existing clients that we are setting up a digital team in the city.”
International business now accounts for 20 per cent of the group’s £15m turnover.
