Our values underpin everything that we do here at Purple. They reflect how we see ourselves, and also, how we treat those around us.
We are passionate about people. That means doing the best for everyone in our communities and beyond, supporting the charities and causes we believe in. This year, we are proud to announce our partnership with Wood Street Mission.
We feel our value “nurturing people to their full potential” really hits home with this amazing charity. Put simply, WSM support children and their families who are living in poverty; helping to alleviate the challenges children face in their everyday lives.
Supporting our local communities
We have an opportunity to not only be disruptive in the global technology market, but to also set an example in our local communities.
Changing Horizons is a careers event designed to showcase the opportunities available in our local area of Oldham, for students aged between 14-15 years. The event, held by the Civil Service, inspires young people and helps them to be the best version of themselves.
Junior Tameside Hack
The two day event, ran by Tameside Council and Tameside College, gives young people aged 12-18 the chance to show off their coding, digital and creative skills. This event enables young people to work with leading technology companies and uncover their talent through solving technical challenges.
Work experience and internships
Purple offer a number of work experience and internship placements each year to enable young people develop the vital life skills they need and help inspire their chosen career path. This year we are working harder than ever to create closer links with our local communities, developing local talent.
