• Cian to develop marketing strategy for £50m training group

    14th February 2019

    Delighted to announce Cian creative pr has been appointed to lead the development of a new marketing strategy for the RNN Group.

    The £50m turnover education and training provider has three FE colleges and five training organisations in South Yorkshire and North Nottinghamshire, employing 1,500 staff and training more than 16,000 students each year.

    Cian director Chris Jennings has more than a decade of experience in the further education sector, having previously been a senior manager at Northumberland College.

    Cian has been the retained pr consultancy for Bishop Auckland College since 2011 and also supports County Durham engineering training provider South West Durham Training. 

    We also have previous experience of working with specialist FE providers, having supported ESPA College in Sunderland which has day and residential students with a range of learning disabilities including autism and ADHD.

    Last year we developed a three year marketing strategy for Hereward College in Warwickshire, identifying the appropriate marketing channels for various target audiences to help achieve recruitment objectives, and outlining measures for monitoring impact and ROI.

    Chris looks forward to working closely with the senior leadership team and director of marketing at the RNN Group over the coming months.
