A FINALIST from television’s The Apprentice has been doing the hiring for a change.
Claire Young, who featured in the 2008 series of the show with tycoon Sir Alan Sugar, has recruited Birstall-based Fantastic Media to further raise her profile with a structured public relations programme.
Since her appearance on The Apprentice, Claire has launched Elegant Venues, a venue management company specialising in weddings. She has also made frequent appearances on TV and in print and has been working with various charities and youth enterprise initiatives, including The Princes’ Trust, UK Youth, Enterprise Village, National Apprenticeships and the National Council for Graduate Entrepreneurs.
Now Fantastic will implement a strategic plan – focusing on the different areas in which Claire works – to help Claire get more coverage UK-wide.
Said Claire: “After returning to Wakefield from London, I was looking for a local agency that I could trust. It was clear from the outset that we have a great working synergy and a like-minded approach towards achieving results.
“I look forward to working with the team at Fantastic. We’ve got lots of things in the pipeline and an exciting 2010 to look forward to.”
