We are thrilled to announce that Bullshark has been selected to form part of Thirteen Group’s prestigious creative agency framework. This significant achievement underscores our growing operational presence in the UK market and highlights our commitment to driving impactful change through strategic and creative excellence.

Thirteen Group, a major housing association, owns and manages over 35,000 homes across the UK’s North East, Yorkshire, and Humber regions, and plans to invest over £400m into existing homes over the next 5 years. The organisation provides services to more than 72,000 customers and employs over 1,500 colleagues. Thirteen Group’s dedication to creating a positive impact in their communities aligns perfectly with our mission at Bullshark.

Thirteen Group’s Mission and Background

Thirteen Group was established in its present form in 2017 through the mergers and consolidation of four housing companies and a care organisation. This merger aimed to create a strong social purpose housing association.

Thirteen Group is committed to being a great housing association and landlord, with 91% of customers stating that their rent provides value for money. Their operating model focuses on putting neighbourhoods at the heart of their business, fostering closer relationships, and giving customers a greater voice. In addition to rental properties, Thirteen Group builds new homes for rent and sale, offering affordable options to help people onto the property ladder. As a Homes England Strategic Partner, they have an ambitious development programme to build 4,500 new affordable homes over the next 5 years.

Bullshark’s selection as a part of Thirteen Group’s creative agency framework was the result of a highly competitive process where bidders were invited to prepare creative pitches. Our role will be crucial in enhancing and protecting Thirteen’s reputation and raising their brand profile through effective marketing and communications with all stakeholders, including customers, partners, and colleagues.

This partnership with Thirteen Group not only solidifies our dedication to expanding our operational presence in the UK market, but also reflects our ability to deliver strategic and creative excellence. We look forward to building a strong and lasting partnership with Thirteen Group, contributing to their mission, and supporting their continued success.
