E-commerce consultancy is going for Growth

Chief executive Michael Curran and sales and marketing manager Leanne Blair from Built for Growth Digital

ONE of the north's best-known e-commerce specialists plans to double its 14 strong workforce over the next 18 months by recruiting a range of new roles within its Belfast office.

Built for Growth Digital, formerly known as Export Technologies, is recruiting creative designers, e-commerce consultants, digital marketing specialists and experienced e-commerce traders, as it significantly expands its in-house e-commerce trading, growth and strategy division.

Export Technologies had grown to a £3 million-plus turnover business and was at the forefront of the Irish e-commerce industry for nearly 20 years.

Built for Growth Digital will continue to build on this success by managing the consultancy services of the existing client base and continuing as an authorised reseller of the highly successful IRP international online trading platform.

The newly recruited staff will work alongside the existing e-commerce team who between them have helped transform the fortunes of many successful online retailers such as Argento, Christie's Direct, Newbridge Silverware, Belleek, Camping World and Magee1866.

Leanne Blair, sales and marketing manager at the company, said: “In many ways Built for Growth Digital will be business as usual for retailers we work with as they will still continue to receive the same excellent service and support they have always enjoyed under Export Technologies.

“As we invest in our growth we now have the ability to target a new pool of retailers that are ready to grow in the e-commerce sphere regardless of their platform provider.

“We have almost 20 years' experience in digital marketing and sales growth expertise that our new business model, under Built for Growth Digital, will allow us to showcase.”
