"We're delighted to strengthen our content creation and marketing teams"
Creative agency Tunafish Media has recruited four staff to support its growth as it celebrates a move to new offices in Manchester city centre.
The latest additions to the Tunafish team are marketing executive Matt Cooper, marketing assistant Harriet Tuite, content creator Jack Gregson and videographer Cain Jennings.
Tunafish has taken 2,150 sq ft at Canada House, a Grade II listed former cotton packing warehouse on Chepstow Street.
Operations director Ric Brooks and marketing manager Hannah Matthewman oversaw the move and fit-out.
The offices were designed by Atul Bansal of Sheila Bird Group and were fitted out by Workspace Design & Build. The project was managed by OBI Property.
The new offices are more than treble the size of Tunafish’s former base on Portland Street and can house more than 25 staff. The offices feature breakout areas, meeting rooms and a studio with green chroma key walls.
Canada House owner LJ Partnership is investing £3m in a refurbishment of the building, which it bought in October 2016. Tunafish has moved into the second floor on a five-year deal to become one of the first tenants.
Ric, who co-founded Tunafish in 2011 with managing director Sam Jones and creative director James McDonald, said: “Following recent client wins and our move to new premises, we are delighted to strengthen our content creation and marketing teams with four new members of staff.
“We are still looking to recruit further during this exciting time for the business.
“Canada House is a great city centre location and provides an excellent opportunity to be involved with a new development in Manchester.
“We’ve focused on creating a modern and fun working space for our growing team.”
LJ Partnership director Sam Lawson Johnston said: “We’re thrilled to welcome Tunafish to Canada House. It’s great to see such a forward-thinking, fast-growing and energetic business choosing the building for its headquarters.
“Tunafish Media’s approach to business and well-designed fit-out are a good match with our vision for the building.
“We look forward to announcing more lettings in the near future. With workspaces ranging from a single desk to large suites, Canada House provides the flexibility for businesses to continue to grow.”
