Illoominate

Illoominate is an initiative that aims to deliver digital skills to the next generation of digital professionals in Bristol. It’s all about shining a light on what we do and why, and sharing it with the next generation of digital marketers and other marketing professionals.

Get into digital with Loom

Supporting professional wellness and mental health is also a key part of the initiative. At Loom, we’re immensely proud of our team and the working environment we’ve created. The atmosphere is one of openness, skill-sharing, and inclusion and helps us be productive and achieve more as a business.

What do we do as part of Illoominate?

Illoominate is our opportunity to share our unique working culture and our knowledge of digital with the city we love. Our aim is to make digital careers more accessible to those who want them.

As part of Iloominate we get involved in various schemes around Bristol. These include:

BIMA Digital Day

An annual event which pairs industry professionals with secondary schools around the country so that they could share their digital knowledge and raise awareness of digital careers. We run digital marketing workshops to help get students involved and engaged in digital.

Work experience opportunities for all ages

We welcome several work experience interns a year, helping them get to grips with the area of digital they’re most interested in. Our team crafts a bespoke experience depending on what each intern wants to learn. We welcome anyone who wants to learn – from students and graduates to more experienced marketing professionals who would like to gain more experience in digital. If you’re interested in work experience with Loom, contact us here.

University of the West of England Mentoring Scheme

Members of the Loom team work with UWE on their growing BAME mentoring scheme, helping students explore their career opportunities in marketing.

Media Trust – Digital Skills Masterclass 

Each year, our digital experts take part in a workshop where we advise charities on how to improve their digital marketing strategy.
