A NEW marketing agency has been showing its support to the community ahead of its official launch in the city.
Marketing agency Delivered Social is soon to launch its Portsmouth arm after operating in Guildford for the last six years.
Already, it is getting stuck in in doing what it can to help the community ahead of its official launch in the coming months.
The firm has just become a corporate partner of Shaping Portsmouth, joining just three other partners who will also support Shaping and its promotional activity.
Delivered Social will also support the several projects that Shaping Portsmouth delivers across the city, throughout business, education and community.
Shaping Portsmouth CEO, Stef Nienaltowski said: ‘I am so excited to confirm the partnership between Delivered Social and Shaping Portsmouth which I know is going to be of immense value to the City and those that benefit from our programmes and projects. Jonathan and Terence share the values and vision we have for the City and they, and their wonderful organisation, will play a central part in the future growth and prosperity of Portsmouth.
I want to thank both of them for their confidence and commitment to Shaping and I am looking forward to both organisations growing together in the future.
It also recently signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant pledge – a scheme which allows organisations to show their support to current and past armed forces personnel – becoming the first digital agency in the UK to do so.
Since doing so, Delivered Social was awarded the Armed Forces Covenant Bronze award, showing that it had already demonstrated its support to the forces.
Former Becketts Southsea general manager and Four in a Bed star, Terence Carvalho is heading up the Portsmouth branch as regional director and felt it important to become part of the Armed Forces Covenant after many years of supporting those who serve.
He said: ‘As a business opening in Portsmouth, we felt it was extremely important to show our support to our armed forces by signing the Armed Forces Covenant pledge. Especially given the history our great waterfront city has with The Armed Forces. Personally, I believe it’s an absolute no-brainer for every business to sign this pledge and we’re incredibly proud to have been recognised even further with the Bronze award.’
Delivered Social director, Jonathan Bird said: ‘Not only are we proud of our active service personnel, but we are also proud of those who have moved on. We hope you’ll agree when we say that everyone in this community deserves ongoing support and recognition for what they do. It’s not just Portsmouth or Guildford that have links to the Armed Forces.
‘All over the country, families see their loved ones working hard to protect. One of our clients, Pimento Recruitment bases its whole business ethos on supporting veterans. We don’t know why we are the first digital agency in the UK to have signed this, but we’re glad we are. If there is any chance this gets more businesses doing the same thing – we will help wherever we can.’
