The Birmingham office of UK PR firm Grayling has strengthened its team in the city.
The consultancy, based in Newhall Street, has appointed Emma Hall and Dani Millward as trainee account executive and digital manager respectively.
Ms Hall joins Grayling's PR department, following work experience placements with the agency and Haslimann Taylor PR last summer.
She recently graduated from the University of Nottingham after reading American Studies and English and will be working across a range of clients, including Marks & Spencer, Canned Food UK and Deloitte.
Ms Millward joins following spells with Rave Communications and Quicksilver PR.
She brings experience from previous roles as a social media manager and in traditional public relations, working for clients across the household, beauty and baby sectors.
She will work across Grayling's digital portfolio, with clients including Ketel One Vodka, Paypal and Hilton Honours.
Ms Millward is also a guest tutor at Sheffield Hallam University where she helps out in lectures and seminars on blogging and social media.
