PR firm moves to new global headquarters in Basingstoke

A PR firm has moved to a new global headquarters in Basingstoke with a hub vibe to support its hybrid work.

Touchdown PR, an international business and technology public relations (PR) firm, has moved its premises to newly refurbished offices in Network House, Basing View.

With five meeting rooms and an open work center vibe, the company said the new office will allow the agency to meet the needs of its growing UK team, which is expected to increase by a dozen staff before the end of this year.

In addition to hiring public relations positions at all levels, other key hires in 2022 will include a full-time financial controller, accountant and recruiter.

Josh Beale-Fletcher, a global HR manager who joined Touchdown less than 12 months ago, has already hired more than nine new employees in the Basingstoke office, as well as 11 others in its offices in the United States and the Asia-Pacific regions. The global membership now exceeds 100.

He said: “Our new modern hub gives us space to grow in the UK and we are delighted to welcome so many new PR professionals to our global team.”

Regarding the decision to keep the company’s global headquarters in Basingstoke, Touchdown CEO James Carter cited the city’s growing reputation as one of the country’s leading technology hubs.

He said: “Being in Basingstoke allows us to attract colleagues not only from the local area, but also many PRs who previously had to make long journeys to London for work. With our flexible hybrid and remote working policies , we can also attract colleagues from even further afield.”

Touchdown has offices and partners in over 20 countries in the United States, Europe and Asia-Pacific, with Basingstoke being its global headquarters.

After successful graduate admissions earlier this year, Touchdown is now seeking experienced PR professionals to join its growing team in 2022/2023.

Earlier this year, Touchdown was named one of the top 10 tech PR agencies in the UK by PR Week and ranked among the top 30 tech PR agencies in the US by O’Dwyer’s magazine.
