Its’ latest success came in the UK Public Sector Communications Awards 2012 which were held in Manchester on Tuesday ( Nov 20). The awards recognise and celebrate the role of communications within the public sector over the last year.
Judges praised Acceleris for ‘providing creative, innovative, and effective work which delivers clients’ objectives’ and also commended it for a ‘good company culture’ and for ‘nurturing talent in the industry through school and graduate work placements’.

This accolade caps a very successful year for the agency in which we have won major new clients, delivered creative and effective campaigns and continued to provide the high level of service for which we are known.
We have ambitious plans for future growth and development and awards like those we have won recently are evidence that we have a great team and the right foundations in place to achieve our objectives.
