As Bristol is one of the key drivers in the UK for the digital economy, it is no surprise that one of Europe’s leading WordPress agencies, Illustrate Digital, has decided to open its sister office here.
The agency has currently started hiring for new roles on its Careers page and has plans to hire at least six new staff members in the new Bristol office, including a UX Designer, Account Manager and a range of developers.
Illustrate Digital opened in Cardiff in 2013, and is an expert in strategising, designing, developing and maintaining websites using the WordPress platform. The agency has core customers in the UK, Europe and the USA and operates both B2B and B2C channels.
Scott Jones, Managing Director of Illustrate Digital, says:
“As a digital business, we have the ever-increasing need to be near great talent in the digital and tech world, and we thought Bristol would be great with the thriving tech communities and great Universities that it has to offer. I am very excited to be opening up here and I am sure Bristol will not disappoint!”
The new office will be open on January 13th based just outside Bristol Temple Meads in Runway, a popular workspace for scaling companies that offer flexibility and space to grow.
This year, the Illustrate team have won a Cardiff Life Award in the Business Service category. The agency has also been announced as finalists for ‘Best Enabling Tech Company’ at FinTech Awards Wales, with some of their financial-based clients including Pure Commercial Finance and Hodge Bank.
Illustrate Digital is keen to hire a mix of both those with existing experience who would thrive on working on exciting, challenging projects for some of the world’s best brands, but also those new to the industry, as they will be able to learn from Illustrate Digital’s expertise as one of Europe’s leading WordPress agencies.
The Bristol office will be based at Runway East Temple Meads, 101 Victoria Street, B1 6PU and the business will be advertising for new positions on its Careers page, so if you’re interested in a new career in the developing world, then it is worth keeping an eye out.
