The multi-award-winning, integrated agency opens new premises as part of its incredible ongoing growth, and its vision to become a ‘destination agency’.
StrategiQ, which reached its tenth birthday in 2023, has existing offices in Suffolk, the Midlands, and London. The decision to open a new office in Manchester comes on the heels of 12 award wins, and a period of sustained growth, welcoming 16 new faces in 2023. The agency has been recognised for excellence in multiple disciplines, including web development, paid media, social media, and SEO, solidifying its reputation as a digital marketing powerhouse. It boasts an impressive 9/10 rating on The Drum Recommends.
With a growing team and flexible working arrangements, the Manchester office is set to become a thriving hub for creative thinking and collaboration, welcoming at least four permanent members of staff, and serving as a North West hub for the existing 49-strong team. This expansion marks a significant milestone in StrategiQ’s journey, showcasing its commitment to attracting new talent, and clients, and growing its footprint across the United Kingdom.
Located at The Express Building, on Great Ancoats St, Manchester, the new office is steeped in history. The Grade II listed former home of the Daily Express is adorned with artefacts and headlines to capture the setting’s history and further inspire its current and future occupants.
StrategiQ is growing in the UK but is also fostering global partnerships with agencies worldwide through the AMIN network. This network provides access to diverse perspectives and insights, increasing the agency’s capabilities to deliver world-class solutions and business-changing strategies to its clients.
The agency also offers pro bono marketing support for smaller businesses and start-ups, with its inQubator scheme. The opening of the office in Manchester provides a unique opportunity for businesses in the City and surrounding areas to access award-winning marketing support as part of the scheme.
