Will Dalzell is joining Venues Event Management next week as team co-ordinator for Virgin Media, Openwork and Qinetiq.

Liz Matthews will join the agency on 3 September, working as client co-ordinator on the BT account, while project intern Tom Duncombe will begin a nine-month placement the same day.

Venues Event Management's recruitment drive has boosted its employee numbers to 106, and chief executive Anita Lowe said it was partly due to promotions in-house and the need to meet increasing client demand.

She added: "The secret of Venue Events Management’s staff loyalty is simple – investment in people. Since the Investors in People recognition in 1997, the company have not only retained their status, but was also awarded Silver Accreditation in 2011. Our next aim is to work towards the Gold Accreditation in the near future, to demonstrate, even further, our commitment to our employees."

Meanwhile, the Swindon-based agency has added a further three staff to its BT account in the past two months. Client co-ordinators Claire Field and Emma Collins joined client development manager Karen Kilminster on the team. Kilminster will also work on the Mercedes-Benz account.
