University of Essex appoint Delete


Following a competitive tender process and pitch, the University of Essex has appointed Delete to drive the next phase of a digital transformation programme, which will see us re-define the organisation’s digital presence.

The University of Essex were seeking a collaborative agency partner who not only understood the challenges of the higher education sector, but who had a proven track record of delivering innovative experiences for ‘challenger’ brands. The University were also seeking an agency with experience and expertise in delivering large-scale projects, with the knowledge and technical understanding of their chosen technology platform.

The first phase of the project, which is due to launch later this year, will see the University of Essex completely overhaul its prospective student digital platform, powered by Sitecore.

Tom Dougherty, Partner & UX Director at Delete commented: “Having the chance to work with one of the UK’s top universities is a fantastic opportunity for Delete, not just because of their highly regarded reputation, but for their aspiration to create a stand-out digital presence in the sector. We are excited to help them fulfil this ambition and look forward to working together on this digital transformation initiative."

Lindsey Russell, Director of Marketing and Student Recruitment: “Delete were the perfect choice as our digital agency.Their experience and proven track record in the higher education sector and in delivering award winning digital platforms made them the obvious choice. We’re excited to be working closely with their team of digital specialists to realise our vision of the future.”
