A DIGITAL marketing agency in Chester has welcomed three new recruits following increased demand for its services during the coronavirus lockdown.

Entyce Creative, based on Spital Walk, saw a rise in the number of enquiries from companies wanting to up their marketing efforts during the challenging time.

With social media becoming a key way in which companies were reaching their audience during the height of lockdown, bolstering its social media service offering was a key focus for Entyce Creative.

Hannah Jenkins has joined the team as social media manager, Kirstie Jones takes the role of digital designer, and Nicola Myers has come in as an account manager.

Managing Director Jane Entwistle said: "Each new recruit has tackled the challenge of joining a business during a pandemic head on.

"With some of the team still working from home at their start date, it has been an unusual way to begin a new job, but this hasn't deterred Hannah, Kirstie or Nicola from getting stuck in and becoming an integral part of the team."

After nearly five months of remote working, the Entyce office has once again opened its doors and is welcoming the team back.
