Christmas celebrations at CMS


Today at Creative Marketing Services we’re getting into the Christmas spirit by taking part in National Christmas Jumper Day 2017.

Our Secret Santa present reveal also took place and as Santa is too busy up in the North Pole to come and hand out the presents this morning he sent his Digital Elves who assisted in his absence! The whole team are looking forward to the Christmas party this evening.


Merry Christmas from all at CMS

Time to speak to a more effective marketing agency for 2018?

Deliver more growth 2018

As 2017 draws to a close it’s time to make sure 2018 delivers more growth, more market share and more profit. One team very experienced in delivering that is the Creative Marketing Services team in Leeds.

Consider this: we’ve been around longer than any of our peers and that’s only possible by having lots of long-standing clients. These clients stay because we produce work that works. We’re not just into producing pretty pictures but great marketing: strategies, websites, brochures, PR, e-marketing, SEO, PPC, social media.

If you want the power of twenty marketing professionals behind your brand, why don’t we meet for a free no-obligation chat at your offices or ours? Center Parcs recently voted us their head office supplier of the year. You’ll see a great benefit too.

Creative Marketing Services won national recognition for service excellence when the agency was named Head Office Supplier of the Year in the annual Center Parcs Supplier Awards 2017.

The UK’s favourite family short break provider, Center Parcs, holds its Supplier Awards each year to acknowledge outstanding companies and agencies from the thousands of suppliers that it works with over the course of the year. The top 5% suppliers were nominated for this year’s finals, held in The Venue conference centre at the company’s Bedfordshire village in Woburn Forest, and CMS scooped one of the event’s most prestigious awards. CMS was appointed by Center Parcs in April 2016 to provide a wide range of services in support of its national recruitment operation, including content and social media, email campaigns, data capture, copywriting, HR literature, online recruitment and advertising in local, regional and national press.

Creative Marketing Services Account Director, Pat Gallagher, said:

“CMS were delighted to be shortlisted for this award and we were thrilled to win it on the day. To be recognised in this way by a major client is a fantastic reward for the hard work of our team over the past year.  CMS is one of very few full–service marketing agencies to offer a specialist department for recruitment marketing and it has always been one of the company’s strongest areas of expertise.   CMS offers unrivaled capability in this sector with decades of experience supported by a rapidly expanding digital team.”
