Duo join PR group; I got my job Evening Chronicle.

PUBLIC relations company O Communications has added two new members of staff to its ever growing team, thanks to the Chronicle.

The company, who were last year voted as the North East's "outstanding small PR consultancy" in the CIPR Pride awards, have taken on two new staff members.

Jerri Murtagh, 21, has only recently completed a degree in Public Relations at the University of Sunderland and has joined the company as a PR Assistant.

Jerri's role will be PR support for the rest of the team.

Also joining the Newcastlebased firm is Charlie Grant, 24 from Richmond, who joins as an account executive and brings two years' agency experience in public relations and online media - as well as an honours degree in Journalism.

Charlie will be working alongside the firm's corporate and lifestyle PR teams on a wide range of clients such as space architecture, River Escapes and Mincoffs solicitors.

Charlie read about O Communications in the Chronicle when she was searching for a job in the industry further up north. Headed up by Kari Owers, O Communications has grown from one person to seven in less than three years.

Its client base had grown beyond 30 clients, and last year it relocated to new 1200 square ft offices in the regeneration zone of Ouseburn Valley in Newcastle.

Charlie, who joins the agency from a PR firm in North Yorkshire, adds local experience to the company's growing Leeds client activity.
