About Us

The BIG Partnership is the largest PR and digital marketing agency outside London. BIG was formed in 2000 by a team of three people with the desire to deliver world-class public relations - to be the best, not necessarily the biggest. BIG has a track record of delivering results-based, dynamic public relations campaigns has enabled us to grow into one of the UK's most successful communications agencies. BIG's 300-strong client list ranges from international and national brands through to Government and public sector bodies, small businesses and charities. BIG's goal is to implement creative, commercial communications campaigns that reach clients' target audiences - and produce tangible and measurable results. BIG adheres to the Chartered Institute of Public Relations' code of professional conduct with all processes in line with PRCA standards. We are still independent and all Directors have a hands on role within the business.We now have 110 staff across five offices - in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Fife and Liverpool.
