A Belfast-based creative PR agency has chosen Harrogate as the site for its first base outside Northern Ireland.

Clearbox is expanding to meet demand from its growing client portfolio, and the announcement coincides with the fifth anniversary of the company, which has global growth ambitions.

The company has worked with brands including Amazon, Sony Mobile, Universal Pictures, MyCarNeedsA.com, and Bushmills Irish Whiskey.

It specialises in delivering creative online and offline consumer campaigns, including PR, social media, experiential activity, press office functions and event management.

The Harrogate office will be headed up by project director Danielle Hibbert, who has been with the agency for three years and has relocated as part the recent expansion.

Ms Hibbert said: “Yorkshire is a beautiful place to live and work so when the opportunity came up to lead the expansion into mainland UK, I couldn’t wait to get started.

“The services we provide in the Yorkshire office will complement those in Northern Ireland.

“This move allows us to be at the heart of campaigns we run right across the UK and is the latest in a number of exciting steps for us as we pursue our growth strategy.”

Clearbox was named the UK’s Best New Consultancy at the PRCA National Awards in London in 2015, and last month was awarded Best Use of Content and Integrated Communication Campaign of the Year for its 2017 campaign on behalf of Bushmills Irish Whiskey.
