Sean Moody & Matt SeelWe’re proud to practice what we preach at Claremont, so welcoming this year’s PR Higher Apprentices intake is a big deal for us.

Following on from news that our National Apprenticeship Week PR work has been shortlisted for two PRCA Awards, our apprentices join us to continue this good work – and also help drive the business forward.

Matt Seel and Sean Moody will join our existing PR Higher Apprentice, Monica Wilson, and will be working on clients including the National Apprenticeship Service.

And Matt, who Claremont first heard about through his work on the Brathay Apprentice Challenge, will be working on the Challenge in 2014 – but from the PR side.  The success of Burnley Council’s apprentices in persuading Alastair Campbell to turn over his blog to promote the work of Burnley Borough Council, was just one of the many signs that Matt has a bright future in PR.

Meanwhile Sean has already shown he has a head for social media after working in the customer service team at TK Maxx, involved in (among other things) running the social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest) for TK Maxx’s tie in with Comic Relief earlier in the year.

Welcome Matt & Sean!
