Golley’s week that was #28

Our regular round-up of what’s been going on in the Golley Slater Cardiff office over the last seven days.

#1 We battled the elements in the Welsh mountains

Two members of our advertising team spent this week in Snowdonia with automotive photographer Nigel Harniman, battling extreme weather conditions to gather new campaign imagery for our client Mitsubishi Motors. They also captured loads of drone footage and time lapse photography, but the stills will be used in two upcoming advertising campaigns for their Shogun and L200 vehicles, appearing later this year.

#1 We were shortlisted for five CIPR PRide Awards

At 2pm on Friday afternoon, the shortlist for the 2017 CIPR PRide Awards was announced on Twitter. We are really pleased to have been shortlisted in five categories for our work on PR campaigns with three of our clients; Welsh Government, The Seren Network, and Hugh James, as well as being shortlisted for Outstanding Public Relations Consultancy of the Year. You can view the full shortlist, here. We’re looking forward to the award ceremony in November already!

#3 We started the search for a new team member

We’re on the hunt for a Welsh-speaking account executive to join our PR team, to work on a wide variety of public sector campaigns, so if you’re a talented account executive or recent graduate with good team working skills and an appetite for success, we’d love to hear from you. Check out the full job description for more details and info on how to apply.

#4 We threw our new intern, Tom, straight in at the deep end

Tom Temple graduated from the Graphic Communication course at Cardiff Metropolitan University earlier this summer, and has temporarily joined the Golley Slater Cardiff team via our paid internship scheme. He’ll be working alongside our in-house designers and a handful of freelancers for the next three months, and by the end of his internship will have a pretty good idea of how a graphic designer’s role within an integrated agency works in practice. Keep an eye on this blog to hear more from Tom in the coming weeks.
