TeamRock receives £650,000 for new jobs

TeamRock has secured substantial support from Scottish Enterprise to provide 47 new jobs based within the company’s head office in Scotland.

The jobs will be created within a new digital development hub in Glasgow supported through a Regional Selective Assistance award of £650,000 from Scottish Enterprise.

This will be in addition to the TeamRock project investment of £4.9 million, over the next three years.

Billy Anderson, Chief Executive of TeamRock told RadioToday: “TeamRock is a content business built around a new digital business model. Our work with Scottish Enterprise has been over a long period of time. Led by Alan Clarke, together we are committed to developing further Scotland’s creative industries sector.

David R Anderson, Scottish Enterprise account manager, said: “What TeamRock is creating is truly ground breaking. The company’s approach to digital content is exactly what all of our creative businesses need to be looking at right now.”

Team Rock was founded by its CEO Billy Anderson and is chaired by John Myers. Fellow founders include Ciaran O’Toole, Cameron Pirie and Alan Clarke.

TeamRock operates the national radio station TeamRock Radio and earlier this year purchased from Future Publishing its portfolio of rock magazines, including; Classic Rock and Metal Hammer for £10.2 million.
