Digital Glue has taken on its first ever apprentice in conjunction with specialist creative, digital and marketing apprenticeship provider, Creative Alliance.
Maryan Mohammed has been recruited as a Junior Content Producer and will be working towards a Level 3 qualification over the next 12 – 18 months. She will be mentored and trained by Digital Glue’s website developer, Ben Goodman.
This apprenticeship will provide Maryan the skills and knowledge in coding, designing and building of websites. She will be completing training throughout her apprenticeship as well as working on live projects for clients to build upon her skills.
Founded in 2013, Digital Glue was initially a one-man operation with Javan Bramhall delivering marketing strategies and solutions to clients from his home. In six years, the business has grown significantly, from one member of staff to now 14 and has increased its revenue 10 times over. Over the past two years the company has been on a recruitment drive, adding six new members to the team and are currently recruiting for two new full time roles. The success of the company is reflected in the level of growth, which has created the opportunity to take on an apprentice and recruit more local talent.
Javan Bramhall, Managing Director at Digital Glue, said: “We are delighted to have taken on Maryan as our first apprentice. We’ve very passionate about creating opportunities for young people across the city where they get a chance to not only learn, but get real hands-on experience working in an agency environment. I am certain Maryan will be great addition to our team at Digital Glue”.
Every year, Digital Glue offer internships to students at The University of Birmingham and Birmingham City University. The company has also offered work experience placements for Birmingham-based schools. Each student gets to experience every aspect of the business so that they are in a position to choose an area that interests them and deliver a piece of work to a client. The apprenticeship is an exciting opportunity for Digital Glue to continue to support upcoming talent in the local area by providing an opportunity to work in a creative industry and helping young people to develop new skills.
