On Friday ‘Rule 5’ will be Manchester’s (and the UK’s) newest public relations firm. We have an office in MediaCityUK and the infrastructure is all in place. Manchester is a great city to be in right now. A new study by Oxford Economics estimates that the region will see output growth of 3% by 2014, nearly 1% higher than the UK as a whole. Media city also has a unique concentration of media and creative talent. Needless to say we are excited.
We’ve been active on Twitter for a few weeks now and there are three questions that regularly come up:
1. Where will you be based? – We’ve answered that.
2. Will you be hiring? – We will. We are a small team but we’ll be announcing recruitment plans imminently.
3. Why are you called ‘Rule 5’ – We’re not going to give a straight answer to that but there are five options.
Roll on Friday.
