Who we are

Getting to know Scriba PR

Technical PR specialists - Scriba

It doesn’t matter if we’re working on a one-off PR project or delivering extensive PR campaigns for long-standing retainer clients – our approach remains the same. We are here to demystify the world of public relations and deliver results-driven communication strategies for organisations that want to tell their story, however complex.

We spend time getting to know our clients’ businesses, objectives and financial targets, to ensure we deliver real bottom-line benefits; we empower our clients to become better communicators themselves; and because we stick to honest principles of good quality writing with modular pricing and an undisputable vigour for what we do, we become a long-term, revenue-generating resource within the companies we support.

Our approach



We’re a hard-working bunch of communicators that brings together PR, marketing and English language experience, in our West Yorkshire HQ. But clients don’t just like us for our CVs. We’re also fiercely tenacious, have an unlimited supply of energy and are known to smile a lot. We love what we do, and wear our ‘word nerd’ badges with pride.

We also work closely with trusted video production, creative, digital and SEO agencies that we’ve known so long they’re an extension of our fixtures and fittings! We understand what they’re thinking before they even open their mouths, which makes for seamless, proactive and powerful marketing campaigns that capitalise on every communication channel.

We will of course strive to help any business that we think can. That’s why we’ve provided PR support to an array of organisations over the years, in sectors ranging from retail to motoring, and charities to interior design. However, we’re particularly renowned for our technical PR expertise, in niche or complex sectors such as recycling, engineering, construction, software and mobile app development, to name just a few.

Perhaps it’s because of our industrial Yorkshire roots, maybe it’s our years of experience in these unusual areas, or it could just be our passion for unveiling some of the economy’s best kept secrets… we’ve certainly got a great ‘formula’ when it comes to tackling B2B briefs many PR companies would shy away from.

Our passion



Our ambitious little business has grown entirely from word-of-mouth referrals and recommendations. Clients see us as a trusted resource, much like a bolt-on marketing department, which sees us uphold a 92% customer retention rate. Whilst the majority of our work takes place in the UK, our reputation has also attracted business from far further afield, including Austria, America and South East Asia.

We’ve received wider attention too – founder Katie Mallinson is a Duke of York Young Entrepreneur Award winner, a Sue Ryder Women of Achievement finalist, and was crowned the Chartered Institute of Public Relations’ Outstanding Young Communicator at the 2015 PRide Awards. Let’s see what this year holds in store…

  • Here at Thrombosis UK, we are so grateful to Katie and the team at Scriba PR for their continued support. Since 2014, they have put their fantastic comms skills to great use and helped to raise funds, but also awareness, of this common, but too often poorly recognised, condition. It was lovely to recently present them with an award to acknowledge their incredible achievements, on this cause that is so close to their (huge) hearts.

    Jo Jerrome, CEO, Thrombosis UK

  • I continue to be impressed by the enthusiasm and energy that the Scriba team deliver. They offer a refreshing and exciting perspective to PR, with a really proactive approach that is focussed on delivering results.

    Simon Howship, managing director, Common Agency

  • Scriba was keen to raise our company profile and showcase our abilities, thus ensuring the brand became more recognisable locally, nationally and amongst our peers. The proficient timekeeping and utterly dependable approach of Scriba has been amazing, and we wouldn’t be without them now!

    Kris Johnson, joint director, Ti Installations

  • I was so confident in Scriba’s ability and so impressed by the team’s cost-effective skill-set and brand commitment, that I chose to work with them – despite them being more than 3,000 miles away!

    Bernhard Mueggler, Past President & CEO of UNTHA America
