London creative agency set to create up to 50 jobs this year with new Leeds hub

A London creative agency has announced that it is creating more than a dozen jobs with the launch of a new northern hub in Leeds.

368, part of commercial services firm Deloitte, will launch the new Leeds hub in June, creating 20 jobs.

The company has said that it is aiming to increase the team to around 50 staff by the end of this year.

The hub will house some of 368’s planning, copywriting, design, social media and project management teams.

Annabel Rake, partner and chief marketing officer at Deloitte, commented: “I’m based in Leeds, and know first-hand that it’s a dynamic and influential destination for creativity.

“Offering a community of diverse, creative talent, Leeds is now the workshop chosen by many to create distinct and unique marketing campaigns.

“368’s new northern base in Leeds will provide a vibrant backdrop to support our ambition to launch award-winning campaigns, created by some of the brightest and most ambitious creative talent in the industry.”

David Harris, creative director of 368, said: “Recent months have taught us how to work collaboratively and creatively with our teams, wherever we are based - however the connections we have with our communities continues to influence the work that we deliver.

“Leeds for many generations has been the home of inspirational innovators and creators who continue to drive the city’s evolution.

“Creating more of our work in this region will allow 368 to continue shaping compelling campaigns that capture the attention of our clients and communities across the UK.”

Stuart Cottee, Deloitte’s Yorkshire and North East practice senior partner, added: “A number of leading businesses, and now government with the UK’s first infrastructure bank, have chosen to open their doors in Leeds in recent years, attracting a range of experienced and new creative talent to lay-down roots in the region.

“Having 368’s creative and digital prowess on our doorstep is yet another string to the bow of the burgeoning creative community that we have here in Yorkshire.

“Seeing businesses and sectors like this grow and flourish in the north is a key facet of levelling-up, and we are pleased to be part of the growing momentum for greater investment across the nations and regions.”
