10 years and the future is just starting!
We Are Digital (WAD) is celebrating its 10th year anniversary in April 2022, and we couldn’t be more excited!
We’ve had some incredible years growing as a business to support individuals in their lives, making an impact by helping people gain the skills and knowledge to make their everyday lives easier, simpler, and become a part of the digital world.
The evidence continues to show that there is a crucial need and divide:
- 50% of the UK is living on the financial edge and has less than £100 in savings
- Supply in the entire debt advice sector in the UK can only serve 48% of the demand and the need is due to soar up to 400% because of the pandemic and the cost of living crisis
- Digital is the fastest-growing sector in the world yet youth unemployment is stubbornly stuck at more than 10%
We Are Digital is a social impact company - a business for good. We help the whole of society by empowering people with training, vocational skills and access to all things digital and online. We take responsibility for being a learner-first business.
As we plan to celebrate in style, we are making plans to continue to grow the business nationally and internationally, we will be increasing our employees by 50% this year.
To support the growth, Jonathan Prew has joined us, in a new role, as Managing Director.
Jonathan started his career in the public sector before moving to a successful career in the private sector where he was the MD at both Serco and Capita, and latterly CEO at a Social Housing Software company. Jonathan brings a huge wealth of experience and knowledge that will embrace our development as a social impact organisation.
Matthew Adam, CEO/Founder said “I am delighted that a “WAD Supporter” has accepted the MD role to come on this journey with us. Jonathan Prew, or JP to those that know him, has known WAD for a number of years and has often helped in the development of my thinking. This move will see JP assume day to day responsibility for running the business while allowing me to spend more time on what I do the best and I will be taking a step forward into exploring how WAD can grow and help more individuals, both in current markets and new ones”
The future is looking impactful, and we can’t wait… watch this space!
