Lynda Hamilton Comms gets recruitment brief
Edgar Stewart Selection (ESS), a professional services recruitment firm, has appointed Scottish consultancy Lynda Hamilton Communications to manage PR and marketing activity for its three Edinburgh-based recruitment brands.
The five-figure contract will see Lynda Hamilton Comms overseeing external communications for Edgar Stewart and its spin-out brands, Talented and Focus, which target the SME community. The brands were both launched in the last six months and are benefiting from ESS’ pledged £120k investment in Scottish start-ups.
Lynda Hamilton, a former magazine journalist and internal comms specialist at The BIG Partnership, said: “The ESS guys are real innovators in the world of recruitment so there’s no shortage of stories to tell.”
Bruce Hydes (pictured), one of three directors at ESS, added: “We’re delighted to have Lynda on board and know she will make a big difference to our PR and marketing activity. In fact, she already has – having achieved coverage for us in the likes of the Daily Record, Scotsman, Recruiter Magazine and Scotland B2B.”
ESS brought in the agency following 35% operational growth in the last year.
