About Us

Carlin Creative is not another PR agency. It is a boutique, highly specialised communications service for private and corporate clients who want to stand out from the crowd. It has been set up by Una Carlin, the founder of Carlin Creative who has come to independent consultancy after 20-years working in senior marketing communications roles in the UK broadcasting industry.

She spent ten years in London working for Channel 4 and ITV before returning home to become Chief Spokesperson for BBCNI for 15-years. During that time she ran the BBCNI Press Office and was nominated for news management and reputation awards for her work on Spotlight’s award-winning documentary exposing Iris Robinson’s affair, Five Minutes of Heaven with Liam Neeson and Jimmy Nesbitt and Facing the Truth with Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

Since leaving the BBC in 2015, Una, through Carlin Creative, has provided consultancy services to Belfast City Council, the prestigious Institute for Global Food Security at Queen’s University, Belfast and Cancer Fund for Children in association with the Rory McIlroy Foundation among others.
