More people find jobs on Indeed than anywhere else. It's the world's biggest jobs site, with more than 250 million unique visitors a month. No wonder... around the world, 9.8 new jobs are listed on Indeed every second, and every day it connects millions of people to new opportunities.
Rhizome Media works closely with the internal comms team at Indeed to help build its brand in the UK, delivering national media coverage that showcases the difference Indeed makes - both by helping people get jobs and by helping employers find the right talent.
Since 2015, we’ve worked with the AA to raise the profile of its exciting subsidiary brands, such as AA Cars, the used car buying portal. One of our key goals has been to dispel the jaded, and frankly anachronistic image that car dealers are all Arthur Daley types with forecourts chock full of bangers and lemons.
Through a combination of authoritative industry pieces, speedy responses to important monthly sector data and features and opinion pieces in the national and consumer media, our job is to distinguish and elevate the importance of the AA Cars brand in its own right.
Recent proactive campaigns have swung between the heavy-hitting (the bearing of car finance deals on the longevity of ownership) and lighter (fastest selling used cars of 2020) ends of the scale, all the while placing AA Cars at the centre of the conversation around car buying and selling.
We've worked with Uswitch for nigh on a decade and dovetail effortlessly with their in-house comms team. Initially starting with their mobile and broadband division, we now take care of their utilities comparison service, too. For both of these flagship divisions, we set the news agenda with proactive analysis and research, and also comment reactively to breaking news.
It's a rapid and intense news sector and so we're often up at 7am drafting comment on industry stories. While the news changes daily, our role remains the same: to break everything down into digestible, comprehensive and compelling copy that always seeks to answer the question: “What does this mean for consumers?”
We love to peer forensically into the detail of every financial services space and Gatehouse, a Shariah-compliant ethical bank is a great example of Rhizome getting to grips with a niche area and turning it mainstream.
Gatehouse’s senior management team set us the challenge of explaining to everyday British banking customers why Shariah-compliant savings accounts and home finance are a great alternative to the High Street. The result? Mountains of national media coverage and frequent appearances in the savings stories that personal finance journalists love to write, week in, week out.
From media training, journalist briefings and interviews to proactive data-led stories driven by our own research and reaction to breaking news, Gatehouse Bank’s profile has positively rocketed since we started working with them.
For more than two decades, Garrington has sourced, negotiated and secured properties on behalf of its clients — and is one of the leading buying agents in the UK today.
Its national network of associates have unparalleled knowledge of their local property markets, and serve as trusted advisers for an array of high profile and successful clients, helping them acquire private residences, second homes or properties for rental or investment.
Rhizome has played a key role in the growth of the Garrington brand, using the national media to demonstrate the unmatched expertise and market intelligence Garrington offers to its clients.
Atelier Capital Partners provides development finance to sustainable SME house builders — those who put the environment on an equal footing with profit. Part-owned by the institutional investment giant, M&G, it offers something no specialist lender does: institutional firepower and blue chip peace of mind.
Its senior management team are firm believers that SME property developers are not just key to getting the required number of homes built but can do so in a way that creates minimum environmental impact and maximum aesthetic — and always with the interests of the local community at heart.
Rhizome launched Atelier in early 2020 and continues to use its exceptional contacts in the property and financial services media to generate brand awareness for this rapidly growing lender and underlining its commitment to ESG principles through thought leadership pieces in key media.
Dashly is the UK's first 'always-on' mortgage switching platform. In slightly plainer English, once you've signed up to this little puppy, it alerts you in 'real-time' to mortgages that could save you money, even after any early repayment charges and other switching fees have been taken into account.
Dashly's goal is to end the apathy that costs UK homeowners tens of millions a year unnecessarily in interest by not being on the best deal they could (or by doing the daftest thing you can, namely paying a lender's 'Standard Variable Rate'). By automating mortgage comparison, using a combination of Big Data, Open Banking and Machine Learning, Dashly is a true disruptor and on target to end mortgage inertia once and for all.
Catax is the UK's leading company in specialist tax relief, specifically Research & Development (R&D), the Patent Box and Capital Allowances — areas that many accountants have just a cursory understanding of.
With over a decade of experience and a productive working relationship with HMRC, the firm has identified nearly quarter of a billion in tax benefits for its clients. Rhizome have worked with the firm for longer than it can remember and its CEO, Mark Tighe, is a close friend and adviser.
Catax use Rhizome for content, videos, PR and pretty much everything else creative that helps them grow as a business. Over the years we've landed them countless in-depth stories in the national newspapers — for brand awareness — and the key trade titles that get the phone ringing.
Paycircle is a fully automated payroll platform that can be used by accountants, bureaus and businesses directly. Its goal is to transform payroll from a grey and one-dimensional once-a-month transaction with staff to an engaging two-way dialogue that is at the heart of the employee/employer relationship.
Rhizome have worked with the founders of Paycircle since 2015, firstly drafting all their website content and then PRing their launch. We continue to keep them in the media, with a specific focus on highlighting how they differ from (and are infinitely better than!) other technology platforms in the same sector.
James Pendleton have been a recognised London property brand for many years but their profile, especially in the main London media, needed a bit of a boost. They got in touch with Rhizome and we rapidly transformed them into one of the most trusted and quoted agents in the country.
They now punch well above their weight and get bags of national media coverage through their incisive market commentary. And they’ve been especially delighted that now their own clients come to them and tell them where they saw them quoted.
The firm’s senior management have also met a string of key journalists, which has resulted in strong relationships with some of the money and property world’s finest correspondents. These connections will stand the test of time and we encourage all our clients to get out from behind the desk and make things personal.
Infinox is an online trading platform that enables its global clients to trade a full range of asset classes, from forex and futures to equities and commodities. Based in the City of London, its business is built on integrity and trust and to that end it offers its customers access to a range of market intelligence tools alongside a premium, one-on-one customer service proposition.
Our primary focus with this fast-growing financial services company has been to consistently put its brand centre stage in the big media through macro-economic and general equity market commentary. The result? Thousands of pieces of media coverage since we started working with Infinox back in 2017.
Octane Capital are a specialist lender offering short- and medium-term loans, primarily to professional property investors and other HNWIs with complex and often significant funding requirements. They're unique in the UK in that they're the first ever lender to launch without any products - each loan is created to fit.
Rhizome has worked with Octane Capital's founders since 2009 when they launched Dragonfly Property Finance, which eventually rebranded as Octopus Property. Through an unsettling, but strangely satisfying osmosis, we can now lay claim to knowing the specialist lending sector inside out.
We provide Octane with PR support, endless content (from blogs posts, speechwriting and web copy to white papers, email campaigns and advertorials) and anything else creative Jon the CEO and 'Poz', the MD, need taking care of.
Andrews is one of the biggest estate agency chains in the UK, with over 50 offices stretching from Kent and London all the way along the M4 to Bath, Bristol and beyond. They approached Rhizome because they didn't feel that a company of their size and credibility was getting enough exposure in the big national media. We promptly solved that by dipping into our extraordinarily large media toolbox.
Since we started working with them in 2018, chief executive, David Westgate, and several other senior colleagues, have been regularly quoted all over the national media. We secure coverage through a combination of reactive commentary around breaking property stories (such as house price indices, mortgage lending data and the ongoing cladding debate), and bespoke research. They are now one of the most quoted estate agents in the UK with a powerful media presence.
Although we only started working with car buying comparison website, Motorway.co.uk, in 2018, we've known the founders of the company, Alex, Tom and Harry, for years. This is the third start-up we've PR'd for them and you couldn't find three nicer guys in the tech space.
They are young(ish!) entrepreneurs with a clear vision and a strong track record. They value the role PR plays in growing a business, and most importantly they recognise the value of having a two-way relationship with their PR firm.
Since we started working with them, Motorway have been mentioned well over 1000 times in the media. Alex Buttle's outspoken views on the state of the UK car industry have gone down a storm with journalists as has Motorway's exclusive data on diesel and petrol car prices. In media terms, Rhizome ensures they're always in the fast lane.
Products in the lifetime mortgage sector don’t get as much attention as everyday home loans. But they are growing in importance as an increasing number of retirees come under pressure from poor stock market and savings returns, as well as the rising cost of living.
Retirement specialist Responsible Life asked us to raise their profile among consumers, which we did by developing creative, relevant content we knew journalists would love. Its sister company, lifetime mortgage provider Responsible Lending, also needed to raise its profile in the industry press.
Responsible Lending is now a respected voice of authority in the mortgage sector, giving both sides of this growing business the profile they need to grow simultaneously.

Its consultants are leaders in their field, whether that be real estate, critical infrastructure or natural resources. It’s the quality of its people, and their insight and expertise, that sets Turner & Townsend apart.
Rhizome works with the company’s senior team to distil and demonstrate their thought leadership, producing world-class white papers and video content - because we believe it’s better to show why you're the best, rather than just say you’re the best.
Being a team of style icons, it was an obvious fit when the Fashion Retail Academy called on Rhizome to raise their profile with prospective students and in the industry. The London-based FRA is an employer-led college that specialises in fast-tracking its grads into positions in the retail industry.
The popularity of the Academy has grown exponentially as students are increasingly conscious that more targeted courses are more likely to help them land a job at the end of their degree. We were subsequently brought in to take advantage of this upswing in appetite for vocational courses by driving targeted press coverage that placed the FRA at the heart of this conversation.
Since we started PRing them in Summer 2018, we’ve done just that, delivering a slew of coverage across key London and national media, as well as in vital trade titles like Drapers, Retail Gazette and Just-Style.
Since, 2019 we've been celebrating the successes of this property developer and making its founder a go-to spokesperson for the entire industry.
When we're not shouting about the company's latest residential, hospitality, Build To Rent, Co-Living or student accommodation project, we're getting the Group's chairman heard in top national publications from the Financial Times to the Daily Mail, and delivering thought leadership pieces to key industry publications.
We've slotted seamlessly into Southern Grove's team and we go well out of our way to ensure it doesn't feel like we're an external agency at all.
When this premium estate agency got in touch, we jumped at the chance to represent them. Property runs through our veins at Rhizome and the leadership of this top-tier agency were pleased to be able to have an adult conversation with PRs who knew their LTVs from their FTVs and their FTBs from the SPVs.
Thought leadership was key, and we wasted no time in transforming the number of times F&Cs managing director was being quoted in the national press overnight. The firm's expertise is now regularly relied on by national newspaper journalists to make sense of the torrent of property data being released every month by the UK's biggest lenders and property portals.
We specialise in getting experts quoted in the media and we use this strategy — AKA reactive quotes or newsjacking — to great effect, raising brand awareness at a stroke.
The collective noun for “eminent eye surgeons” is just three letters – OCL. Each and every one of the ophthalmic surgeons at this beautiful clinic in central London is a global leader in their field.
Together the clinic’s consultants have completed tens of thousands of surgical procedures and written more than 100 peer-reviewed papers in respected scientific journals. But it’s their commitment to providing the very best care, in everything from laser and cataract surgery to retinal therapy and reconstructive eyelid surgery, that sets them apart.
As the only surgeon-owned, comprehensive private eye care facility in London, OCL is unique. Rather like Rhizome, and we’re proud to be helping them build their brand in both the national and healthcare media.
There’s close to the action, and then there’s living and breathing the action. Escapade Silverstone is the motor racing equivalent of having a luxury flat in the Royal Box at Wimbledon Centre Court.
When work started on this extraordinary collection of apartments, which are being built just a few feet from the hallowed tarmac of Britain’s most legendary racetrack, the developers chose Rhizome to drive the PR strategy.
We quickly put the Escapade brand into the media fast lane, securing glowing coverage in leading titles around the world and building an international profile for this unique investment opportunity.
