IF Digital Club News

The July August IM Savvy Magazine is now here and Interactive!

The Team have really worked hard on this magazine to make it “More than a Magazine” As you already know if you are a business that supports us that people from the work placements programme get involved in the creation and publication by researching all that feature either via social media or online. We have now taken this to the next level and introduced a lot more interactivity to I’m Savvy, via an online blog, this enables the team to take an advert or feature in the Magazine and expand online presence by searching for relevant video and information giving business owners more brand awareness.

This benefits not just the businesses who feature but gives great experience for those that attend the training and work experience programme!

We are on the move!

To help more people attend the IF Digital Club we have decided to move our location to the city centre, this will indeed help people who attend our work placement programme and have trouble travelling outside the City centre of Derby.

We will be re locating to Friar Gate area soon, so thanks to all the businesses that continue to support our fund our programme.

May June I’m Savvy Magazine is very special!

The May and June I’m savvy magazine is a very special Magazine to the Team at IF Digital Club, it has been created by a young man Patrick Hartle who has been with us for just 4 weeks and is attending our work placement programme with the Job Centre plus.

Patrick has shown how much potential there are in people that are seeking opportunities to find work in their chosen vocation but can’t seem to get a break. Patrick travels from Ripley to our office on Ascot Drive daily to help with the creation and production which shows dedication and inspiration to someone that wants to work.

Well done Patrick for the great work! and again a big thank you to all the businesses that continue to support the programme and give people like Patrick opportunities
