RAF appoints Agency Republic

The Royal Air Force has appointed Agency Republic to work on digital activity for its integrated recruitment campaign.

The appointment follows a four-way pitch managed by the Central Office of Information (COI).

Agency Republic will work with the RAF’s above the line agency DLKW and MGOMD and i-level, who both work on the media strategy, to develop a campaign to promote the service through the stories of people serving in the RAF.

The RAF began its search for a digital agency in February. The service has previously worked with Lean Mean Fighting Machine, which was appointed to work with the RAF on digital recruitment campaigns in 2007.
