The expansion comes as the agency announced a rebrand earlier this month that sees it expand its focus to include all aspects of employee engagement and internal communications.

Abi Humayun, co-founder & executive producer says: "Russell is one of our latest batch of talent to join our People Activation mission. He specialises in helping brands understand their audience, be that internal (employees and stakeholders) or external (customers, fans or consumers).

"In addition we have further strengthened our creative offering and our project teams with five new team members and we are also currently recruiting more. We estimate that by the end of 2016, our headcount will hit 24. This is an exciting time for Rapport and our move to larger premises in Manchester’s Northern Quarter last year was part of the masterplan to proactively expand the agency."

Oakley has previously held roles at content company The Moment and creative agency Scorch London.

Other appointments include Joe Gilliver as producer, Pippa McGuire as account executive, Natalie English as junior creative, Luke Bailey as junior designer and Georgia Lomas as apprentice business administrator.

Rapport also picked up four awards at the C&T Awards last month including the coveted Grand Prix for its ONE Astellas Live Event.
