Intu owns 18 retail centres across the UK as well as multichannel shopping centre intu.co.uk.

The group works with Powerscourt for financial and corporate PR support. Each of its centres also works with local PR agencies.

Intu is using the PRCA’s Find a PR Agency (FAPRA) service as part of the selection process. Pitches will be taking place shortly.

Intu Metrocentre in Gateshead, the largest shopping centre in the UK, is currently undergoing a £17m extension to increase its dining and leisure facilities. The project is due to be completed in March 2016.

Last year Intu made a profit of £600m.
