Expansion for South Wales Communications Agency


Creative communications agency jamjar has expanded its team following a year of growth and diversification.

The Cowbridge-based agency has appointed Rhian Richards as Communications Manager, Ellé Holley as Senior Communications Executive, Carys Bryant as Marketing Manager and Sophie Stephens as Junior Graphic Designer.

Ms Richards joins the team from the communications team at Wales Millennium Centre where she was responsible for delivering the Centre’s PR and media campaigns with particular focus on its own productions and events.  Ms Richards, who has a BA in Welsh Literature and Language, will bring her Welsh language skills to the role, supporting clients who require bilingual communications.

Ms Holley joins the team having gained experience at another Cardiff-based PR agency where she worked with wide-ranging clients including Cintec International and Redrow Homes. With an English Literature degree from Cardiff University, Ms Holley will deliver communications support to jamjar’s clients including ScoutsCymru, Techniquest and Sony UK Technology Centre.

Ms Bryant joins jamjar from the Marketing and Partnerships team at world-famous department store Harrods Ltd where she spent ten years honing her skills managing B2B and B2C relationships, as well as end-to-end management of campaigns. Graduating with honours from Cardiff University in English and Communication, at jamjar Ms Bryant will be responsible for developing and implementing bilingual marketing campaigns for clients.

Ms Stephens joins from Mon Motors Group, one of the largest automotive dealers in South Wales, where she worked on creative artwork for the dealership’s car brands. With a BA in Graphic Communication from the University of South Wales, Ms Stephens will support the agency’s creative offering, providing branding, digital, and graphic design to its growing client base.

The expansion comes on the back of a hugely successful year for the agency after diversifying its offering to cover PR, digital, social, marketing and creative.

Managing director, Lyndsey Jenkins, said:

“Since I started jamjar back in 2012 the communications world has changed considerably, and consequently our services have evolved to reflect this, and the growing requirements of our clients.

“While PR will always be a core part of our business, we now offer so much more – creative, marketing, digital and social – so we felt it was essential to bring in new people to help to continue to build the jamjar offering. We are delighted to have Rhian, Ellé, Carys and Sophie bring their expertise to the team.”
