Cumbrian PR agency One Little Bird, headed by public relations specialist Nici Hewitson, is growing once again, taking on newly-arrived Australian media analyst Perrin Walker as PR and Digital Marketing Executive.
Settling in Cumbria with his partner, Perrin has fallen in love with the lakes and fells. Perrin said: “Cumbria is absolutely spellbinding. It’s overwhelming how much there is to explore.”
Perrin brings PR experience from the press division of Isentia, a Sydney-based media monitoring and analytics firm. He holds a BA from the University of Sydney, where he took First Class Honours with a thesis studying the lifecycle of stories in the French news media. At university, he wrote for the student newspaper and for the university’s events blog.
Nici said: “Perrin is a very welcome addition to our team. This year we have seen continued growth, so we have just had a recruitment drive and are about to embark on another one soon. Perrin’s enthusiasm and proactiveness are are perfect fit for us and we are delighted to have him.”
When not at work, Perrin can be found running or cycling around the Lakes. He’s also brought his love of flying gliders with him, quickly joining the Lakes Gliding Club.
“The view from up there is just unforgettable” Perrin said.
One Little Bird represents high-profile local clients, including Brimstone Hotel, Ast Signs, Augill Castle, Lowther Castle and Tottergill Farm. The company will welcome another new starter at the beginning of July and due to further new business, continues to grow – it is now recruiting for an additional PR Executive and a Digital Marketing Executive.
