Experience Level: Expert
My name is Freddie Peart and I am managing director.

I am looking for somebody to get press coverage primarily in the NE of England to raise the profile of our new business.

Amongst other businesses Peart Group has 2 service businesses based in the North East of England. These businesses have grown rapidly and work closely together to deliver government strategy of training both the employed & unemployed, and additionally of finding work for the unemployed.

The coalition government has changed the focus of its funding and is very keen to encourage employers to take on apprentices, particuarly those in the 16 - 18 years old category as there is a shortage of opportunities for school leavers.

We have developed a new business, essentially a fusion of the recruitment and training businesses, with the simple aim of helping employers find the right apprentice.

We have had a very encouraging start and have several successful case studies. We think this is newsworthy because: -

We are early into the market / have a unique offering
We are supporting government strategy
It is a good news story
We are placing 6 apprentices in a business in Hartlepool - an area blighted by redundancy
We are working closely with several colleges of further education

More generally we are looking to raise the profile of the group of companies - for example Baltic Training have in the last 3 months opened 3 IT academies to train 60 * 16-18 school leavers in IT over a 6 month intensive course - IT is a sector in which the UK is lacking skills

I am looking for an experienced PR consultant but am not wanting to pay normal agency rates - I am looking for a one off price to assist in writing / distributing a press release to support. However the successful bidder, assuming a level of success with this task will continue to work closely with us into the future as we continue to grow our business in this bouyant sector.

I can provide much more information
