Shackleton, announced today, is a new agency specialising in social media and digital PR. As a wholly-owned subsidiary, Epiphany decided to launch Shackleton after seeing the huge potential in the UK market.


Epiphany co-founder Robin Skidmore explains: "Shackleton is a natural next step for the Epiphany Group. Our clients often ask us to support their social media strategies and we wanted to establish a new agency to offer a specific skillset beyond pure search marketing."


The new Operations Board structure allowed the founders to explore new strategic opportunities for the company and this announcement comes just three weeks after the Epiphany Group announced Epiphany Australia.


Epiphany Group CEO Rob Shaw said: "This is another step forward for the Epiphany group of companies and it's evidence of the way that we're constantly innovating and looking for new opportunities to leverage our philosophy of data-led, creatively executed digital marketing."


Shackleton has secured office space in both Leeds and London and will be announcing its first recruits shortly.
