Over the years we have raised thousands of pounds for charities in the Nottingham area, supported local businesses with our buying power and helped inspire the next generation of digital marketers thanks to our work experience placements.
Hallam aims to exceed the norm in both our work and our community engagement. That’s why we are always actively seeking out new ways that we can help create the best society alongside our friends, neighbours and colleagues.
Our responsibilities fall into three broad roles:
- Investing in Our Community
- Supporting Local Charities
- Taking Care of Our Team and Our Customers
And here is how we do it:
Framework – Hallam’s charity of the year 2018
Framework is Hallam’s designated charity for 2018. Framework fights against homelessness and helps homeless people across the East Midlands and South Yorkshire. In 2017 they provided opportunities to over 11,00 people. We’re volunteering our digital skills and knowledge to help Framework have a strong online presence.
Tech Talent Charter
By signing the Tech Talent Charter, Hallam has committed to supporting gender diversity in technology sectors. Specifically, we are creating opportunities for talented women passionate about all things digital.
Hallam is proud to be a sponsor of Nottingham Playhouse. Located in the city centre, Nottingham Playhouse is been one of the United Kingdom’s leading producing theatres since its foundation in 1948. It tours nationally and internationally and is a mentor and umbrella organisation for creative talent across the region.
BIMA Digital Day
Hannah Broom and Kevin Kapezi spent one day at the Nottingham Academy talking to pupils about the digital industries as part of the national initiative for agencies and schools BIMA Digital Day. In the morning they talked through digital career opportunities and what it is like to work at a digital marketing agency. In the afternoon pupils were tasked to complete a Dragons Den type challenge with our colleagues’ guidance and submitted their solutions to a national judging panel in the hope to be named Digital Day Champions 2017.
Ingenuity Lab – University of Nottingham
The Ingenuity Lab helps University of Nottingham students leverage and boost their entrepreneurial and innovation skills. The lab’s over 1600 members benefit from specialist advice on and support with various business issues. In 2017 Susan Hallam shared her digital marketing journey at the Ingenuity17 Conference.
We joined the Nottingham Trent University for an interesting day challenging students to solve a business problem that we presented to them. The students had only 3 hours to tackle our challenge and present their ideas back to us. Their solutions were spot on and we’re considering implementing them.
‘She Means Business’ Facebook Training
As part of the ‘She Means Business’ campaign initiated by Facebook and Enterprise Nation, Hallam ran an event to inspire creativity, empower confidence and educate business
women on how to best utilise Facebook and Instagram to grow their businesses. Over 20 female entrepreneurs boosted their digital skills in an all-day training session delivered by Lauren Ahluwalia who is one of only 8 trainers in the country certified by Facebook to deliver ‘She Means Business’ events. She helped our guests learn the best practices of building an active audience through informative Facebook pages, engaging posts and effective adverts. Read more about the event on our blog.
IT4Arts is a charitable initiative run by the Arts Panel of the Worshipful Company of Information Technologists, one of the City of London’s Livery Companies. It comprises of more than 100 not-for-profit arts and cultural organisations across the UK.
Hallam is aiding the programme in its mission to help the arts make the most of digital communications and connect to their audiences. We regularly deliver workshops on the latest digital marketing trends and techniques to support the member organisations reach their online objectives.
Each summer Hallam offers a work experience placement. In 2017 Laura Taylor and Max Moore worked on a range of digital projects and gained training and coaching from our colleagues to help equip them with the skills needed when they move into the world of work.
Hallam is proud to be a sponsor and to serve on the advisory board of Enactus NTU, donating our time and resources to this community outreach project.
The initiative sees a team of students from Nottingham Trent University run social projects using entrepreneurial talent to positively impact lives and empower individuals.
Students apply business concepts to deliver community outreach projects and help improve the quality of life for people in need.
