Edit Moves Into Leeds City Centre

Ambitious plans for growth have led to Edit’s recent move into the City Centre.  The digital marketing agency now occupies the entire third floor of No1 Whitehall Riverside.

The third floor is expansive, with 7,500 sq ft of space, designed by Design Tonic, and enjoys riverside views and a bespoke Editorium space.  This is a significant move from the company’s previous premises at Thorpe Business Park.

Another recent change is the appointment of Joel Spence as Chief Digital & Growth Officer last October.  Joel has more than 12 years of experience supporting agency growth and works in collaboration with the senior team towards achieving Edit’s strategic plan.  He said:

“A great business location is all about talent and culture and Leeds has bags of both. Our new office is a fantastic networking space with an Editorium available for workshops and events.

The central location will enable clients to join us for events and talks, whilst bringing us closer to Leeds’s thriving digital marketing community. We have big plans for Edit in 2020. We will continue to invest in areas of growth, innovating our service areas and investing in top talent.

It’s a great honour to be invited to lead the digital business within Edit as well as growth for the wider business. It’s a life-long ambition and one that I am truly excited and energised by.

We have a fantastic future ahead; our focus in 2020 is to continue to deliver incredible commercial results and great brand-building work for our clients, to build great new relationships with ambitious, growth-focused businesses, and to innovate our products to drive new value and improve operational effectiveness.

We have an enviable reputation in the industry and this move will allow us to continue to attract the high-calibre talent that will drive Edit forward.”

Edit, part of Kin + Carta, is taking advantage of the opportunities of occupying City Centre space, and is advertising roles currently available in SEO, Sales and Paid Media.

Recent client wins for the agency have included Shell, Black Tomato and Blind Veterans. Its 200-strong team works across offices in Leeds, Bath and London.

Kin + Carta Connective were rated as E-consultancy’s 8th best digital agency in the UK. 

2020 will see Edit, leverage the group’s skills and connections further, delivering larger enterprise data transformation projects, and new product innovations, having rounded out 2019 with a trio of prestigious DMA awards for their innovative work with Jaguar Land Rover.
