This follows on from the company’s announcement earlier this month of a £1.5m investment in 50 new digital local journalist roles in its markets across the UK.

The new sales consultant roles will be recruited under Newsquest’s LOCALiQ brand, which specialises in helping SMEs grow their own digital presence and business.

Henry Faure Walker, CEO of Newsquest Media Group, commented: “There is no doubt that Covid has accelerated the demand for local businesses wanting assistance and support in their digital marketing, and we’re really excited about the opportunity to help the businesses in our communities do this through LOCALiQ. We look forward to welcoming new digital talent into our sales teams up and down the country as we continue to build out this opportunity.”
