BrightLemon believe in the importance of giving young and fresh tech talent the opportunity to hone their skills in the workplace of a digital agency. Not only do internships at BrightLemon offer development and training for the intern, but the individual also has the chance to play a crucial part in the transformation and development of the business.
After winning the Top Employers for Working Families Special Awards last year, our Civil Service Job Share Finder platform has been nominated for another award with The Employers Network for Equality & Inclusion (ENEI). Our project with the Civil Service, which is essentially a job-share version of a ‘dating site’ for Civil Servants, has been nominated under the category ‘Impact under Innovation’.
Earlier this week, BrightLemon bought their own version of The Great British Bake Off to their co-working space, Edspace, in an effort to raise money for those affected by the recent UK terror attacks. Several members of Edspace spent the weekend getting messy in their oven mitts and putting their baking books to good use for the fun-filled, flavourful competition.

The power of advertisement is often underrated by most of us. Over the years, advertisements have been the influence of many social movements and trends in popular culture. They’re capable of changing the way we think and feel collectively in just 60 seconds or less. An advert can make us sob like an infant, laugh from the pit of our belly, or jump right out of our skin.
The needs of employees in the UK have changed drastically in the last few years. With more commitments and increasing caring responsibilities than any previous generation, job flexibility has become a must. Not just for the workforce, but for any employer that wants their business to succeed in the competitive UK economy.
We are extremely proud to have played a part in the delivery of the Civil Service Job Share Finder project, which won the most competitive Innovation award at the Top Employers for Working Families Special Awards 2016 last month.
