Helping the local community

Our developers go above and beyond helping our local community, often spending their free time consulting, building and coding WordPress websites for local charities. Most importantly, just like with our clients, our developers spend time showing the charity organisers how to easily update and manage their websites themselves so they can always have full control.

Our team has spent the time to develop and provide free WordPress plugins and themes for the local community to use. Juan, one of our Spanish contingent, has also reviewed themes for the Theme Review Team.

Organising Events

  • WordCamps – Many of our team volunteer their free time to help organise and support WordCamp Brighton and WordCamp London.
  • WordUps – WordUp is a monthly local WordPress community meetup that involves workshops, talks and networking. We’re sponsors of WordUp and regularly run WordUp Brighton events.
  • WordPress Clinics – We run WordPress Clinics, where we offer our free professional advice and consultation in the form of 1-2-1’s with local WordPress users and developers.
  • Agency Meetups – We organise friendly meetups with fellow agency owners. We believe that in sharing our business knowledge we can all grow as stronger, more powerful agencies together. We see fellow agencies as our peers and enjoy spending time with and working alongside them.

Providing new careers in WordPress

We’re a partner of Brighton Digital Media Academy, where we offer mentoring and work experience placements to the students of Brighton Aldridge Community Academy (BACA). We support our local universities by offering careers in the digital industry to their graduates, as well as providing yearly apprenticeships for those who want to get experience in the workplace while studying. If you love WordPress and you’d like to start your career in it, please get in touch to enquire about our future opportunities.
