Cambridge marketers benefit from networking event

130 local marketing and media folk descended on Revolution Bar, intent on establishing new business relationships and cementing existing ones at an event sponsored by Brand Recruitment and organised by marketing job site,

Simon Lewis, Director of remarked, “For me what marks Cambridge out as a networking hotspot is the sense of community; a genuine appreciation of each other’s goals and achievements. The thirst for knowledge – perhaps there’s a University nearby?!- is palpable and the willingness to share experiences admirable.”

“Of course, all this is made easier with the right blend of participants. And Cambridge produced the lot: branding experts, PR specialists, digital gurus, designers and photographers. They all mingled with such efficiency that the speed networking element was almost superfluous. But not quite – as attendees made 5 new contacts in a blistering 30 minutes. Where else is that possible?!”

As at last year’s slightly smaller event, regional marketing recruitment agency Brand Recruitment headlined the event with their team on hand to offer advice and solutions to jobseekers and companies looking to hire staff. The feedback from their involvement has been terrific so if you are looking for marketing jobs in Cambridgeshire, or indeed, jobs across the Eastern region, please do not hesitate to contact Brand Recruitment.

Amidst the structured mayhem Jill McCulloch of Coach You and representative of industry training and qualification institute, Cambridge Marketing College, imparted her wisdom. Both and Brand Recruitment would like to thank her and the College for the continued involvement.

As the evening eased by it was time for the champagne draw, which was kindly sponsored by Brand Recruitment. Following some late business card entries it was Product Marketing Manager, Thomas Bygott, who won the bubbles. Congratulations to him.
