Search marketing agency Stickyeyes has taken on 16 new members of staff to support its growing client roster.

The new recruits span all areas of the agency including Natural and Paid Search, Social Media, Online PR, Development and supporting services such as marketing, sales and recruitment.

The team expansion takes current headcount to 67 and comes as Stickyeyes is ranked as one of the most financially successful specialists in the country by leading industry publication; new media age (NMA). Stickyeyes jumped up the rankings to 6th place with an income of £4,238,751, an increase of 48% from 2010.

Said Craig Chalmers, Managing Director at Stickyeyes:

“Our extensive recruitment drive in recent months signals a new era for the agency. We’ve witnessed unprecedented growth against a tide of economic uncertainly and, having recently moved to our new 8,500 sq ft offices in West One, Leeds, we now have the space we need to expand the team further.

We have a fantastic track record in servicing clients in extremely competitive sectors including retail, gaming and travel and our new recruits, alongside our existing, award-winning teams will be instrumental in driving forward even more ROI and success for our increasingly impressive client base”.

Stickyeyes recently announced their appointment by game and movie rental company LOVEFiLM to develop and implement its search strategy in the UK and a number of new account announcements are believed to be in the pipeline.
