The Status Social Story

Who are we? What makes us different?

Status Social exists to make a difference

We do that through helping you achieve your business objectives, having an impact on society and challenging ourselves as a team and individuals.

Founded in January 2011 by award-winning BBC journalist, Mark Saxby, Status Social was one of the first social media agencies in the UK and it remains one of the few which specialises only in social media.

We Are A Values-Led Business

We operate according to our nine values – being ethical and honest, and providing excellence are our three key values – and we don’t compromise on them. Everything we do is influenced by our values.

What does being a values-led business REALLY mean for you? It means we don’t over promise and under deliver. We won’t train you or take on your social media if we don’t think it’s right for you. We won’t spend your money if you should be spending it elsewhere.

We recruit through our values; we discuss our values every team meeting; and we ask our social media management clients to work according to our values.

Find out what key people at Boots, Centrica, Experian and Wilko think to the way we run our business according to values.

Our values…

Being Ethical and Honest, and Delivering Excellence

We are…

Plain-speaking, Creative and Accurate

We love…

Teamwork, Open Feedback and Fun!

Multi Award-Winning, Results-Driven Experts

Status Social truly are fantastic to work with. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to step change their social media.

They’re an agency who really work in partnership with you; always taking the time to understand your needs and objectives, then always going above and beyond to deliver against these. Results are always delivered, targets are always exceeded.

Mark and Kerry have formed a wonderful team of honest, passionate, and smart working people who are highly talented in what they do… the blend of individuals across the team makes it a powerful one.

Our Team


Director Mark

Mark learned of the power of social media during a 20-year award-winning career in journalism – which included working for the BBC and ITV.

Mark wrote a song to represent the UK at the Eurovision Song Contest and runs an international campaign against the evils of quiche. Ban the Flan!


Director Kerry

Kerry is the analytical brains behind Status Social. Her attention to detail is frightening and her ability to spot a grammatical error astounding.

Kerry inspires everyone she meets – running a business and a family-of-five while not going mad is an incredible achievement!


Administrator India

India is the cog that makes the Status Social wheel turn. She is not only the person who most of you will meet and speak to first, she will make you feel like you are the most special person in the world.

Before joining us, India worked in marketing. She has a perfectionist streak – and we love it.


Social Media Manager Sosennah

Sosennah – or Sos for those who can’t pronounce it – grew up in Ethiopia before moving to the UK and starting her career in PR in London in 2007.

Sos loves making the most disgusting fruit juice known to man – it contains water cress, spinach, blueberries & sprouts. A bit like drinking mud.


Social Media Trainer Andy

If Andy had a TV show, it would probably be called Everyone Loves Andy. The ratings for his social media workshops are consistently 9s and 10s.

Andy’s branding background comes in particularly handy when advising delegates on the look and feel of their social media. His love of unusually-shaped potatoes is less useful.


Your dream job? You?

The world’s best social media consultancy is always interested in hearing from those who’d love to work with us or for us.

If you think you’re someone who aligns with our values and can make a difference to our clients, then get in touch with us.

We Like To Give Something Back

Our mission is to ‘have a positive impact on everyone we come into contact with’.

We don’t have a CSR policy – we just do what we believe every business should do.

We offer a discount to charities and support local causes.

Our directors have also set up Positive Social – a charity which goes into schools to teach young people how to survive and thrive on social media.

Do we sound like the sort of social media consultancy you’d like to work with? If so, we’d love to arrange a quick chat with you to see how we can help you achieve results.

You And Your Results Matter To Us

We think it’s important to measure our activity on social media – and we love it when our clients tell us what they’ve achieved with our help!
