Two new starters have joined the team at CandidSky – bringing new skills and expertise to our growing talent pool. Josh Boot comes aboard as an SEO consultant and Ben Young joins the PPC team as a senior paid media consultant.
Josh Boot – Our new SEO consultant
Josh Boot comes from an SEO background and has worked with such influential clients as BT. Bringing an excellent skill set to the table, he aims to improve the organic visibility of any website he works on and assist in developing their online presence.
He decided to join CandidSky after hearing the director’s (David and Simon) plans for the agency. Moreover, he was impressed by the passion the organic search team showed for SEO and marketing in general. Simply put, working for CandidSky was too good of an opportunity to pass up.
Outside of work, Josh enjoys cooking, mountain biking, and has a big passion for motorsport. He has also brought his enormous Game of Thrones tankard into the office as – wherever you go – Josh feels you should always have your own mug.
Ben Young – Our new senior paid media consultant
Ben Young joins CandidSky as our senior paid media consultant following an impressive career in PPC. Previously working for Hit Search in Liverpool, his role ensures that our paid media team continues to grow and develop – bringing more value and better results for clients in the process.
He decided to join CandidSky after seeing our great working environment and observing how we look after and develop the team. Relocating from Liverpool, Ben felt we had a refreshing approach and it was clear to him that CandidSky would be a great place to work. Out of the other Manchester agencies, we’re flattered he chose to join us.
It was also apparent to him that we care about providing a leading PPC service to clients. Using the skills he gained through his previous occupation as a professional poker player, he can bring a unique analytical and strategic approach to our paid media department.
When he’s not working, Ben enjoys walking his Labrador (Dexter), playing baseball, and spending time with his family.
Hiring them was “an easy decision”
Simon Fryer, search director at CandidSky, was delighted with Josh and Ben joining the team. He stated:
“Josh and Ben both bring unique skills and experience to our team. Their ambition and enthusiasm for what they do really shone through when we first met. This, combined with their belief in our agency strategy, made adding them to our team an easy decision.
By adding them to the team we’ve continued to increase our capabilities and added more experience working with some of the largest brands around. Their addition will add a great deal of value to our campaigns and, most importantly, our clients.”
