The nine new employees all joined the business this month (June) and are based in Ashfield’s European hub office in Ashby-de-la-Zouch.

Recent new business and client wins in the healthcare sector have prompted the new appointments with more people expected to join the agency within the coming months. The new starters will be spread across the business with fresh talent joining the finance, venue sourcing and creative teams.

The rest of the group will sit within the agency’s operational teams as project executives, senior project executives and project managers. 

Helen Capelin, head of operational excellence at Ashfield Meetings & Events said: "We are delighted to welcome our new group of recruits into the agency. They are a hugely talented group with wide ranging backgrounds, skillsets and experience. In the short time they have been with the agency they have already demonstrated that their personal insights can bring a fresh perspective in how we gather inspiration and add new types of value to client projects.

"We look forward to seeing the impact their on-going contributions will bring to the agency and supporting each of them in their continued professional and personal development."
