Fold7 is in the process of hiring a new group account director, account director and account manager.

The agency recently picked up business from Wonga, Magners, Audible, Eat and Doddle.

Ryan Newey, the founder and executive creative director of Fold7, said: "It’s great to be adding to the team at this stage in the agency’s growth and welcoming this fantastic new talent into the fold.

"We’ve been looking for blinkers-off agency and creative experts who can easily slip into Fold7’s 21st-century approach to advertising.

"These new squad additions mean that we can continue to deliver exceptional creativity at a pace to match 21st-century consumers."
