• Marketing recruitment agency Denholm Associates claims it is launching Scotland’s first “employer brand” consultancy. Denholm said the Inside Out venture, headed by advertising stalwart Mark Gorman and HR specialist Keith Thompson alongside Nicki and John Denholm, will help the SME sector stand out when it comes to hiring staff.

Denholm CEO Nicki Denholm said: “Many companies invest heavily in their consumer or trade brand for their products or services but don’t invest at all in their employer brand and this leads to a disappointing employee experience. We’re on a mission to change that.”
