On the move: the latest East Midlands hires

Rob Sherwood and Layton Weatherall

Repeat Digital, the Long Eaton-based digital marketing agency, has strengthened its team with the appointment of experienced pay-per-click expert Layton Weatherall.

Weatherall, who joins as paid media account manager, will be responsible for overseeing the day-to-day running of multiple campaigns including paid search and search engine optimisation strategies.

The former GoDaddy man brings seven years’ industry experience to the role.

Rob Sherwood, commercial director at Repeat Digital, said: “We’re extremely pleased to welcome Layton to Repeat Digital. He brings with him a huge amount of experience, especially in an account management role, and his ability to liaise with clients is really important for us.

“There is no doubt that he is a strong addition to our team and we are now looking to recruit two more team members. There was a dip in confidence at the end of last year, but there is a real bounce-back feeling in the industry now and we’re feeling upbeat about this year.”

Weatherall said: “I am thrilled to have joined Repeat Digital. I am very excited to be part of such a great team and to have the opportunity to work alongside some brilliant minds.

“I’m looking forward to continuing the fantastic work we do for our clients and I really appreciate having been made so welcome over the last few weeks.”

Enrok Construction has appointed a new quantity surveyor.

Stuart Wedge brings almost ten years’ experience to the Derbyshire-based contractor. He joins at a busy time for the firm, whose ongoing projects in the Midlands include the restoration of a former mill on Crocus Street in Nottingham and a pair of resi schemes in Handsworth.

He said: “Enrok has a strong team in place already and I am looking forward to adding my experience to the company. The company’s growth ambitions and the potential for me to develop my role on numerous ongoing projects really appealed to me.

“Our work within the affordable housing sector is also something that aligns with my values. I wanted to be part of a company that is committed to working with housing associations to deliver more affordable homes for people across the UK.”

Simon Bennett MCIOB, operations director at Enrok, added: “Stuart has direct experience that will quickly benefit our client’s projects across the Midlands. His ambition to be part of a growing business impressed us and we are all delighted that he has joined the Enrok team. As we focus more on working with Housing Associations in the Social Housing sector, it is essential that we have the right people in the right places across the business. We feel we have achieved this with Stuart, and I am looking forward to working with him.”
