Leeds-based communications agency, Prohibition has appointed three new members to its team following a period of significant growth. The news comes following another record year for the integrated PR specialist, which was listed for the first time in PR Week’s Top 150 consultancies in the UK and has also recently been recognised for two marketing awards, including 'Best Small PR Agency,' and 'Best Integrated Campaign 2019,' as well as winning three new clients.

The three new hires include Victoria Carlin, who has joined Prohibition as senior account executive. Carlin previously worked at Beattie Communications, and has worked with household brands including Tesco and Vue Cinemas. Accompanying Carlin are graduates Bryony Nuttall and Jonathan Routledge, both of whom join the growing team as account executives having studied at Leeds University and Leeds Beckett respectively.

The new recruits will be working on social media, content development and PR strategy and activation for a roster of prestigious clients including Sealy UK, Lloyds Pharmacy, the Light and Engie.

Chris Norton, founder and managing director of Prohibition, says, “We’re delighted with the success we’ve already seen in 2019, not only have we been recognised as the 'Best PR Agency of the Year' and having delivering the 'Best Integrated Campaign of the Year' at the Prolific North Awards but we’ve also won some really exciting new projects which we are dying to get our teeth into. These new appointments show the best things do come in threes but this is a careful strategic move as we continue to grow different divisions in our business and add variety to our service offering."

Prohibition has its head office in Chapel Allerton and now employs 15 members of staff. With ongoing ambitions to specialise, the company has hugely ambitious plans to expand and diversify its offering over the next 18 months, with several senior hires and new service offerings set to be announced by the autumn.
