Hallam Grows Team With New Paid Media Recruit

New hire, Syed Rahman, joins the award-winning team at Hallam.

Multi-award-winning agency, Hallam, has added to its paid media team with the appointment of Syed Rahman.

Syed joins the team at Hallam as Paid Media Consultant, working with clients to provide end-to-end paid media advice, from strategy building and development to day-to-day ad and account management.

Although new to Hallam, Syed is no stranger to agency life having got his first break in the industry when working for a small start-up agency in Newcastle where he spent two years before moving onto Arts Council England, leading their multi-million-pound educational initiative across the arts sector.

Jack Brown, Head of Paid Media at Hallam, said:

I’m delighted to bring Syed to the team who no doubt will strengthen our paid media offering to clients. Syed has settled into the team seamlessly and fits the Hallam culture to a tee. With his background, skills, and years of experience, Syed is a welcome addition to Hallam, in line with its commitment to integrated marketing, which continues to grow from strength to strength.

Syed’s appointment is an example of Hallam’s new policy of Location Equity, in striving to be a company that finds the best people and wherever they choose to live. While some will prefer coming into the office every day, others will prefer to work fully remotely and there will be those who want a mix of both.

Last month, Hallam was also listed as 53rd in the Best Small Companies to Work for in the UK, 14th in the Best Agencies to Work for in the UK, and 57th in the Best Companies to Work for in the Midlands. This month, Hallam also picked up the trophy for Best Integrated Campaign at the European Search Awards 2021 for its work with client orgvue.

Alongside this, Hallam was also selected as one of Campaign’s Best Places to Work 2021, an accolade that recognises the best workplaces in the marketing, advertising, and media professions.
