New jobs are set to be created as part of a £600,000 relocation for a creative design and marketing agency. 

Creative’s managing director Scott Clarke.  Kensa Creative is currently based at the University Campus in Priorslee, Telford but its success means it needs to expand.  The company will be relocating to newly built offices at Plot2a, Hortonwood West.

The plot – like a number of others around the borough – has been brought forward to market as part of the Land Deal that Telford & Wrekin Council agreed with Homes England and the Marches Local Enterprise Partnership.

The building has 418sqm of floorspace on two floors for Kensa Creative, allowing for future growth of the business without restriction. 
Scott Clarke, managing director at Kensa said “Kensa has grown significantly year on year, quickly reaching the point where we can’t squeeze any more people into our current office space.  As creatives, it has been out dream to not only own our own building, but to actually design and build it too.  Thanks to a partnership with the council’s own in-house property development consultancy team biT Group, who also happen to be one of our clients, we’ve been able to make it a reality and are looking forward to all the exciting possibilities this extra space will bring”.

Councillor Lee Carter, Telford & Wrekin Council’s cabinet member for economic development said: “This is yet another prime example of how our unique Land Deal is enabling existing borough businesses to expand and create more jobs. 
This particular company are unusual in that the jobs that are available are in the creative sector rather than heavy industry – this is not typical for Telford but it is great that the range of work available is increasing.  I wish Kensa Creative every success in their new home at Hortonwood West”.
