The new contracts for Tourism Northern Ireland, University of Exeter, National University of Ireland Galway, and new Irish & UK energy market entrant, Bright have further boosted growth at the agency, which currently employs over 50 staff across the three offices.

Agency co-founder, Jeremy Poots said: “We are delighted to win such sizeable contracts, especially with the backdrop of COVID – which made these contract wins even more important - and now we have an immediate need to add a wide range of new positions for designers, developers, data analysts, film producers, animators and client services.”

Mammoth was also named “UK Agency of the Month” in November by Creative Brief, an outstanding accolade from one of the UK’s largest marketing portals.

In its 20th year and with clients as diverse as Ed Sheeran and Rory McIlroy alongside large corporates like Bank of Ireland, Queen’s University, ICON, and the hugely prestigious branding project for the Rugby League World Cup 2021 – Mammoth expect further strong growth in 2021.

Co-founder Paul Martin explained: “We won these contracts due to the two areas where Mammoth specialize: brand re-invention and digital transformation.

“Due to Covid clients are having to dramatically re-invent and reposition their business offering very rapidly for this new world - and our large team across brand/digital/social/video/and analytics are uniquely placed to take these campaigns to market through social media and advertising campaigns – helped by a recent investment in a new purpose built Video & Content Studio, with an ‘infinity curve’ wall and portable kitchen for food shoots at our new flagship HQ in Royal Avenue.”

The Mammoth co-founders expect the growth to continue ins spite of the issues caused by the pandemic and added: “2021 will be turbulent year for many firms, however we believe there will be a resurgence of pent up demand and increased acceleration in adapting to the new digital world in the second half of next year if COVID is brought under control and we expect to win additional clients in Ireland, Britain and Europe in 2021. We are now urgently looking for quality people keen to develop their careers, with the opportunity to work on exciting projects.”
