FOUR Apprentices have been recruited by Purplex Marketing, which launched in 2004 and now employs over 40 people.
The specialist window industry PR, marketing and digital agency has taken on four IT Apprentices as part of its ambitious growth strategy.
Purplex, which recently celebrated its 10th anniversary, was founded by Andrew Scott who has unveiled plans to double its 40-strong staff by 2017 in areas such as web design, search engine marketing, app development and social media.
The company works with clients across the glass and glazing industry on marketing strategy, design, PR, as well as digital marketing.
Andrew said: “I am delighted to welcome the four new apprentices. Our digital marketing division continues to grow rapidly as we attract new clients from across the UK and Europe. It is essential that we develop our team to keep pace with growth and new technologies, and introducing apprenticeships will help train the next generation of digital marketing experts.”
James Wilmot, Apprenticeships Recruitment Coordinator at Weston College, who provided the apprentices, said: “Apprenticeship applications have risen considerably because businesses like Purplex are seeing the benefits. They can mould someone to the company's needs and put them at the heart of their business.”
