Winner of 2014 Red Rose Award for Marketing Business of the Year & Finalist in the BIBAs 2013 in New Business of the Year category, the company has been in InfoLab21 since September 2011, and has continued to grow.

“We chose InfoLab21 partly due to its location - easy access to the M6, well serviced by public transport, and the services that InfoLab21 provides - all the usual you’d expect from a serviced office location, plus fantastic additional support from InfoLab21 and the university. As a company that works mostly online, the reliable high-speed internet connection was a major draw for us too. It’s a lovely place to work and meet with clients- the view from the roof terrace is amazing!” Head of Agency, Monica Gwizdala, explains.

Santander internships are part-funded summer internships sponsored by Santander, one kind of internship available through the Science and Technology Internship Programme, which enables businesses to access skills, trial new roles, and research new ideas.

“As a business, it’s fantastic having access to the talent pool of diverse and skilled graduates that Lancaster generates, and the internship programme goes a long way towards making it possible for us (as an SME) to recruit bright and innovative young people to join our company and build a future together,” Monica explains.

As well as recruiting students, the business has worked with academics at InfoLab21 on collaborative research funding bids, benefited from business support programmes from with the Management School, such as LEAD course and the Lancashire Forum, and is developing projects with the Department of Mathematics and Statistics and other departments.
