A marketing firm with North East roots has beaten off industry competition to gain a coveted place on the Scottish Government’s Framework for Marketing Services.

The news could see Ponteland-based Promovere’s year-on-year turnover quadruple with the creation of as many as 12 full-time and contract staff jobs.

Promovere, which works in the public and private sectors, is one of five businesses added to the Scottish Government’s roster of field marketing companies. It is the first time the Scottish Government has included this specialism in its Marketing Services Framework. The framework will last for two years.

Only those firms on the framework are eligible to bid for contracts, which could include canvassing opinion on and promoting interest in national health campaigns to anti-drink drive initiatives and recycling schemes.

It means Promovere’s services will be available for use by, among others, Scottish ministers, non-departmental public bodies, parliamentary corporate, fire and rescue groups and health boards.

Promovere, which also has an office in Glasgow – joins Kommando, The Leith Agency, Union Direct and Material Marketing and Communications on the list.

The firm – which employs five full-time staff with a further 50 on contract – is now in a stronger position competitively.
