Purpose Media is celebrating national apprenticeship week following the appointment of its 15th apprentice and the promotion of two former apprentices to senior roles.

Josh Donell joined Purpose Media first six years ago, and Olly Torrance the following year. Both have followed a structured career development plan gaining work experience in all areas of the business before settling into their preferred specialism. Josh found that his passion lay in front end development where he is now a senior developer, and Olly rose through the ranks to Senior SEO Strategist.

Purpose Media’s latest apprentice, Alli Howland, joined on a digital marketing apprenticeship. The company has also strengthened its content team following the appointment of Olivia Beesley who has a degree in Professional Writing with Media Studies from the University of Derby. She joins from an event management and magazine publishing company where she was a marketing manager.

Josh said, “I have been very lucky to have great mentors over the last six years and have experienced first-hand the value of an apprenticeship. They enable young people to earn whilst they gain a qualification as well as the ability to gain softer skills that are invaluable in the workplace. Now I am in a senior role I am looking forward to nurturing the next generation of Purpose Media apprentices and helping them understand the company culture and needs of our clients.”

Purpose Media partners with James Stafford from EMA Training who manage the appointment of apprentices and arrange their ongoing learning and development.
