Manchester creative firm for John Lewis, JD Sports and Next makes two new hires


Manchester creative production business, CCW, has expanded its tech team with two new hires.

The latest appointments come after the firm welcomed seven new starters earlier this year and is another step toward its target of increase in staff headcount by 25 per cent.

It works for clients including John Lewis, JD Sports, The White Company, Next, Magnet, Dreams, and Funkin’ Cocktails.

Included in the new hire lineup is Phil Mitchell, a former photographer and architecture student from Liverpool John Moores who joins as 3D Capture Technical Lead.

Phil was a Senior Scanning Technician responsible for developing the in-house studio for furniture retailer Sofology for more than seven years.

Another new addition to CCW’s tech department is Sam Slater who joins CCW’s tech roster as an Unreal Engine Developer. With a background in VR software development, specialising in Unity and Unreal Engine, he brings with him almost a decade of experience coding and programming.

Vlad Mulhem, Technology and Innovation Director at CCW, said: “We’re incredibly excited to welcome these new starters to the tech team here at CCW. We love working with new creative and tech talent to help really push CCW’s offerings even further. Looking ahead to the end of 2022 and beyond, we’re aiming to achieve a Net Zero status and the Technology and Innovation department is a crucial part of that initiative.”
