Graduate jobs created in West Cornwall
Four new graduate positions have been created following the
relocation of an international marketing communications company
from London to Helston. The new jobs which have been filled
by local people are the result of a move by M1 Marketing to
offices in the centre of the Cornish town.
Cornwall Enterprise assisted with the relocation by providing
information as part of their inward investment programme which
aims to achieve prosperity for Cornwall by increasing the
range and value of jobs. This programme has recently been
transformed with the introduction of Objective One project
In Cornwall You Can - a brand new one stop service for potential
investors moving to Cornwall. Danielle Atkins who was recently
appointed as Investment Manager welcomed the news of the new
jobs created saying, "This is exactly the kind of company
we are looking to attract - small niche businesses generating
high quality jobs."
M1 Marketing specialises in business to business Marketing,
Advertising and PR to the general manufacturing sector. They
offer a comprehensive service including market research, business
planning, trade press relations and brochure distribution
to help businesses to effectively promote themselves in the
UK and Europe.
Formed in 1993 by Liam Olliff, the company has a turnover
of £1.2 million. Key clients include Shell, Thermo King
Europe, Heil, King Trailers and Brigade Electronics. M1 Marketing
operates in six countries throughout Europe.
Liam Olliff, Director of M1 Marketing said, "It's a pleasure
to be in Helston again. Having attended Helston School and
moved away 22 years ago, coming back from London is literally
a breath of fresh air."
