North Somerset firm to create 200 tech and media jobs

A Weston-super-Mare based company, the Ascot Group, has announced plans to expand its operations resulting in dozens of new jobs.

The group has grown from a start-up business to 70 employees and operates within the marketing, media and technology sectors. The newly created roles will span everything from digital marketing and data analytics to more traditional positions such as graphic design and copywriting.

The company is hosting an open day on Saturday 27th April at its HQ at Worle Park Way, next to Worle train station, and local people can register to attend.

Ascot Group CEO Andrew Scott commented;

“North Somerset is brimming with talented people but many of them commute to Bristol or further afield. Not everyone is aware that a world-class marketing and tech company exists on their doorstep, so we’re inviting people to meet our team and see our facilities.”

The Ascot Group operates across 3 businesses, Purplex Marketing, Insight Data and Business Leader, and positions are being created at every level – from experienced senior management to trainee roles. The jobs will be phased in over the next 3 years and the company is already seeking additional office space to accommodate the growth.

The Recruitment Open Day will take place from 10am-2pm and for more information visit
