Growing a business in recent years has been tough across all sectors.
Digital marketing agency, Jarrang, has grown steadily over the past ten years, and has been making the most of support from government funding where it’s available, to enhance its private finance packages.
Existing in the fast moving world of digital marketing, Jarrang must employ people with the most up to date skills. Unlocking Potential (through the European Social Fund) is in effect, an outsourced 'graduate fast-track' programme which helps businesses in the South West recruit and develop graduates. This innovative programme ensures Jarrang’s employees’ skills and expertise are developed to grow a dynamic, competitive business.
Managing Director, Stafford Sumner has also made use of the European backed, Oxford Innovation, who deliver a programme that coaches high-growth businesses. As the company continues on its path to continued growth it has also received support from GBI (Grant for Business Investment) and the South West Investment Group in the form of match funding.
Stafford explains “Making use of supported personnel training, and adding the European funding support to our own bank finance and profit reinvestment has helped keep Jarrang up to date with the latest technology, in both training and investment. It’s well worth seeing what’s out there.”
