Toast, which has offices in Manchester, Leeds and London will be helping Broadstone to launch its new security recruitment marketplace for jobseekers and employers in the £5billion private security industry.
Julia Mitchell, managing director of Toast, said: “Broadstone is a dynamic SME with innovative products and services, proven by the investment by the NPIF. As well as media relations activity and social media promotion to Broadstone target audiences, we will also be working collaboratively with agency Engage Hub on a video-led campaign in the New Year.
“This is the latest in a line of new business wins for Toast PR, which include The Landing @MediaCity UK, building on what is now a five year background in technology clients. It’s such a dynamic and exciting sector to be involved in and the relationships we hold with key technology media and influencers are proving to be a great asset to us.”
