PlastikCity Welcomes New Recruits, as well as Internal Promotions Within the Team

Online procurement and marketing hub PlastikCity is delighted to welcome on board two new members to the team as well as announce internal promotions for hard-working staff.

It’s been a very busy couple of years for PlastikCity & PlastikMedia. Covid 19 showed the power of digital marketing, and the team has been working incredibly hard to keep up with demand. At the beginning of 2022, MD Carl Futcher decided, along with the team, to increase the marketing side of the business to promote the existing partners better and therefore entice new ones.

In February 2022, Jess Clarke was promoted from Marketing Manager to Communications Director, a role that allows Jess, one of the longest-serving team members, to apply her years of industry knowledge to building the relationships between PlastikCity and its partners. Jess is personally linked with a large proportion of the UK plastics industry, allowing her to bring a personal level to the business.

PlastikCity welcomed Becca Watt to the team in May as a Marketing Executive, working predominantly in the PlastikMedia division, publishing industry news, growing its readership, and promoting the group’s 260+ partner companies. Becca joined the team, having previously worked for PlastikCity Partner, GOM UK, where she gained valuable industry knowledge and marketing skills.

In June 2022, Will Clarke was promoted to Partnerships Manager. Having become increasingly more involved in meeting potential new partners, account management, and working alongside the MD to sell the key features and benefits of PlastikCity membership, this role had been newly created for Will.

The team recently brought in Dane Chaplin as a Digital Marketing Apprentice in September. Having had massive success with apprenticeships and work placements (SEO Specialist and Web Developer Tom Clarke joined as a work placement in 2015), PlastikCity has decided once again to invest in the future career of a student.

Carl Futcher said, “It’s always been important to me to recognise success with progression in my team, and these recent promotions for Jess and Will have been well-earned, particularly during a difficult period for the industry and economy as a whole.

“I am also thrilled to welcome Becca and Dane to the PlastikCity family. To find a marketing executive who already has experience in the manufacturing industry is quite rare, and Becca has exceeded expectations. She’s hit the ground running and brought a great sense of fun to the office – we’re delighted to have her on board.

“With Dane, we’re also happy to have introduced new, young talent to this industry. I think it’s imperative that businesses encourage young people to join and keep pushing our industry forward, and we’re excited about all the benefits that he can bring to PlastikCity and PlastikMedia.”
