Two new starters join Place North team

Holly Sale and Zara Ashraf have joined the Northern media company to bolster its events and production teams.

Sale and Ashraf’s recruitment comes at a busy time for Place North, which operates three publications: Place North West, Place Yorkshire, and Place North East.

As digital content and marketing producer, Sale will help craft bespoke content for Place North’s public and private sector clients. This includes assisting with our podcast creations, video roundtables, marketing campaigns and other strategic business development services offered to clients. She joins from Peel L&P, where she was marketing coordinator.

Kirsty Butcher, managing partner and head of product at Place North, said she was pleased to have Sale join the production and content team. “Holly will be a great asset to the team and our clients,” Butcher said. “With her background in marketing and experience at Peel, she brings skills that will help us at this exciting point in the company’s journey, as we expand into new regions.

“Both Holly and Zara are a fantastic fit for our team and culture, and I’m looking forward to seeing them grow with the business as we keep moving forward,” Butcher continued.

Sale said: “The warm welcome that Zara and I have received from the team has set the stage for an exciting time at Place North.

“I was over the moon to join the company due to its fantastic reputation within the Northern property industry, as well as the variety of projects the team work on,” Sale continued.

“I’m eager to dive in and begin delivering engaging and innovative content and marketing for Place North and our clients and partners.”

Ashraf is Place North’s events assistant and recently secured a first in her hospitality and tourism masters degree at Northumbria University. She will work alongside event director Laura Davies producing conferences, networking socials, roundtables, and private events throughout the North.

“I’m thrilled to be starting at Place North as an event assistant,” Ashraf said. “I look forward to getting stuck in and learning more about the events and property industry, whilst working alongside a brilliant team.

“In my first week, I have already experienced the annual Place Party with over 700 guests,” Ashraf continued. “This has been a great start to my career with Place North, and has given me a fantastic insight into the professional events the company runs. I am excited to see where this role takes me and work on more events in the upcoming months.”

Davies said: “We’re pleased to welcome Zara to the team during such an exciting time for the business, with new events taking place in Yorkshire and the North East, as well as our busy North West calendar of conferences, socials and roundtables.”
