Hallam Internet Supports Student Initiative, Employs Local Graduates

Posted 14/06/2013

Nottingham based digital agency Hallam Internet are once again proving their support of the student community by sponsoring the IDM Summer School for digital marketing.

The summer school is free to attend and provides students with skills and knowledge to give them a head start in their marketing careers. The residential course is due to take place at the Institute of Direct and Digital Marketing in Teddington, South London, from the 24th to 28th June and is also sponsored by globally recognised advertising agency Ogilvy.

Susan Hallam, CEO of Hallam Internet, will teach the search engine optimisation (SEO) element of the course.

Of the initiative, Susan said – “I’m a firm believer in the value of students and am delighted to be part of this fantastic educational opportunity. Too often these days, we hear negativity toward university courses which teach the arts, including marketing. But it is often the students of these courses that display the kind of smart, critical thinking you need to succeed in today’s job market. I’m proud to show my support of students by delivering the SEO course and by sponsoring the event itself.”

Hallam Internet’s involvement in the IDM Summer School coincides with the appointment of a Nottinghamshire graduate to their growing team. Jannike Ohsten, who recently achieved a BA in English at the University of Nottingham, is one of a group of local graduates employed by the company over the years including Sarah Dawes, Ben Wood and Sean Burton who graduated from Nottingham Trent in 2006/2010, Laura Hampton who graduated from Loughborough University in 2008 and Abra Millar who graduated from the University of Nottingham in 2012.

Commercial Director of Hallam Internet Mike Hallam commented – “We know the value a university education brings and we continue to find great success in the employment of team members who graduated in Nottingham and the local area, either as recent graduates or coming to us from other roles. There’s a real range in the courses they studied too, from Politics to Philosophy and Social Psychology, and that’s because it’s those graduates, in our experience, that bring the smart approach and diverse capabilities we need in such a fast paced industry.”
