See Media Stories – 4: Sara-Anne

The See Media team at the PRCA Dare Awards winning small consultancy of the year

When I joined See Media, I was the most junior member of our (then) four-person team and fresh-faced to the world of housing comms. Having grown up in social housing in Brum, I was excited about the opportunity to work with organisations that have a clear and genuine social purpose.

At the time, the housing sector was not under the same scrutiny or feeling the economic and environmental pressures it is today. But even with my rose-tinted glasses removed, there’s genuinely no other sector I could imagine working for. 

Over the years, our clients have trusted our counsel and guidance enabling us to demonstrate the positive impact affordable housing can have for residents and communities across the UK. While we’re not the best as an agency for shouting about our achievements (the irony), being named in 2022 as small consultancy of the year at both the regional PRCA and CIPR awards was a proud moment.

Not only did I get to go on stage and collect the award with the colleagues I began my See Media journey with, but we also got to celebrate with one of our oldest clients and our newer members of the team (we’re now double the size we were when I started). As a proudly specialist agency, we’ve achieved a lot in our first decade, but there is still plenty more to come!
