Candid Springs Into Action For Wide Range Of Clients In March

As the first signs of spring start to show, we sprang into action here at Candid HQ this month, and have been delivering some excellent levels of media coverage for our much-valued clients.

Since the start of March we have secured more than 50 pieces of digital and print coverage for our clients which operate in a wide range of sectors including healthcare, property, finance and the professional services sectors– and we are only one week into the month!

We have secured stand-out regional print and online coverage for S Harrison’s development plans for a site in Lincoln, which is going to be developed into a new Travelodge, as well as for Harris CM’s £1.3million contract to build new space for supply chain business iForce in Corby.

The appointment of a new lawyer at LCF Barber Titleys also hit the headlines regionally and the expansion of the catering team at Czajka Care Group generated plenty of regional and trade coverage.

The promotion of residential and commercial staff at leading property firm Dacre Son & Hartley and the celebration of White Cross Vets being named by The Sunday Times as one of the best places to work in the UK again achieved sound regional and trade coverage.

With a big SME business showcase in both the Yorkshire Post and Yorkshire Evening Post achieved for Adept Civil and Structural Engineers to mark the firm’s 10th year in business, as well as some great profiling for one of Dacre Son & Hartley’s Directors on TheBusinessDesk, it has been a busy start to the month!

We have delivered some fantastic coverage in a cross section of the trade media including Caring UK, FE News, The Negotiator, Construction News and Veterinary Record as well as some lovely hits in consumer magazines like Yorkshire Life and Your Cat – yes there are lots of magazines just about cats!  

With numerous property of the week profiles written for the property pages of the regional titles, we have also worked up some great features including how to prepare for Crufts for the Birmingham Mail, the value of apprenticeships for UK Construction, the appeal of living in Pateley Bridge for the Yorkshire Post, as well as developing an insight in what the future holds for manufacturers for the Sheffield Star Series.

We can safely say it’s been a very rewarding first week to the month.
