Hale-based digital agency, First Internet, has welcomed back Julaine Speight as a director four years after leaving. 

Julaine worked for First Internet for four and a half years, between 2010 and 2015, before leaving to work in the digital team at Tangerine in Manchester, working on clients including Pizza Hut Restaurants, Liverpool John Lennon Airport and Jewson, then going on to set up her own agency, JAW Digital LTD in Altrincham. 

Julaine returns to First Internet, founded in 1998, as marketing director.  She’ll be heading up the agency alongside Kat Rodway, client services director, and Scott Baxter, head of development, underneath founding director Stephen Alexander.

Julaine said of her return: “First Internet has always had a special place in my heart and there are some excellent growth opportunities to be had.  We have a great, skilled team here, all of whom are hungry to push the agency forward as a collective.  I’ve already seen some exciting client wins since re-joining and am thrilled to grow the agency even further alongside Kat and Scott and the team as a whole.”

This comes at an exciting time for the agency, with several new business wins, including national recruitment company Meridian Business Support, wholesale confectionary specialist Kandy King and family mediation specialist Marcia Mediation.  This raft of new clients sees the agency hurtling towards breaking the £1 million revenue figure in just a few short months, with a 60% uplift in profits targeted for the next financial year.

First Internet is a full-service digital marketing agency that has been running for over 20 years.  Services include website design and development, UX design, SEO, social media management and content marketing.   Clients include Greenhalgh’s Craft Bakery, PZ Cussons, Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, Sew Direct and more.
