The UK-headquartered firm has moved its City PR account from Maitland in a pitch understood to have featured most of the UK’s key financial PR agencies.

It is also understood that the wider Bell Pottinger Group will provide additional PR services to Hays, though the account will be led by Pelham.

The win is one of four FTSE 250 clients picked up by Pelham via competitive pitch in the past month.

The agency has also won mining firm African Barrick Gold (previously held by RLM Finsbury), student accommodation manager Unite Group (formerly a client of FTI Consulting) and retained listed office space firm Workspace.

Gavin Davis, Bell Pottinger Pelham MD, said: 'These wins are a testament to the team and their determination to provide clients with cerebral, but also creative, advice. They also highlight our ability to draw upon the skills of the broader Bell Pottinger Group and provide clients with joined-up advice including corporate, digital and public affairs. This momentum puts us in a very strong place for the rest of the year.’

Davis took over day-to-day control of Pelham from founder James Henderson in March to allow Henderson to concentrate on the group-level management of Bell Pottinger Private.
