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 Internet 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:
Investing in our community
Hallam Internet 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.
Each summer Hallam Internet offers a work experience placement. This year Nikki McCaig will be working on a range of digital projects and will be gaining training and coaching from colleagues to help equip her with the skills needed when she moves into the world of work.
Supporting Local Businesses
We are proud to be an independent Nottingham company and we want to help others like us prosper. That means buying the contents of our office fruit bowl from Kerry’s Fruit and Veg – a company that has been in Nottingham for more than a century. We also buy our team lunch each Friday from a range of the fantastic catering companies, sandwich shops and delis close to our office. And when it comes to our nights out we always support local restaurants and bars in the city centre.
Supporting Local Charities
Rainbows Hospice for Sick Children
Rainbows Hospice for Sick Children is the East Midlands’ only hospice for children and young people. Rainbows is a place where life-limited children and their families can find care and support at a time when they need that help the most. This incredible team of people helps relieve symptoms, improve quality of life, support parents and siblings through their bereavements and care for children until the end of their lives.
We are proud to provide support to Rainbows through the range of fundraising activities, including their annual Nottingham Riverside Festival Dragon Boat Challenge.
Robin Hood Marathon
It’s not just dragon boat racing that gets out heart rate going as we also take part in the Robin Hood Half Marathon.
Team Hallam is well represented in the The Nottingham Post Corporate Challenge giving businesses like ours the opportunity to give back to the community we live and work in.
With the corporate challenge we were able run in a mass participation race with our colleagues and friends and raise money for good causes, have fun and get fit.
Hallam Internet 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.
