Supporting the community

Supporting local communities

With the digital landscape becoming increasingly integral to daily life, 6B is ensuring that the skills of the next generation of IT talent are properly developed and that we have a diverse, thriving sector.

We are doing our part by inspiring young people to participate in our industry. Alongside our partners, we are delivering sustainable programmes that support our community development themes for Youth and Technology. By combining financial support with pro-bono commercial and technology expertise, our partners can deliver improved community project outcomes.

In our communities, we are creating new opportunities for future innovators, creative thinkers and problem-solvers, and we are taking positive action towards improving diversity.

We play an active role in the digital community, and organise and participate regularly in forums and discussion sessions. We actively engage with schools and colleges across the UK, and host a range of educational events and opportunities for young people to learn about the digital sector.

Charitable support

We pride ourselves on supporting the communities in which we operate, and have formed a number of partnerships with charities across the UK.

We support a number of charities on an ongoing basis, and host regular fundraising events.

Nurturing young talent

We have made a valuable contribution to the wider socio-economic environment, and we work with colleges and councils to identify and nurture young talent.

We also support local authority/college apprenticeship programmes – we take part in the Kickstart Scheme, for example – with our latest apprentice securing a job following their placement.

Supporting our team

We are proud to be based in Yorkshire, to support the community by providing employment for talented individuals from across the region, and further afield.

We welcome opportunities for team development, and provide regular opportunities for our team to undertake additional training (both internal and external, up to NVQ level 2), alongside a comprehensive programme of planned training and development.

All our team are paid competitively, and receive regular bonuses, pay reviews and benefits, including flexible working, healthy breakfast and lunch buffets, subsidised gym membership, mental health and wellbeing support and unlimited holidays.

Environmental impact

We recognise our responsibility to our team, and to the communities in which we operate, to make an active contribution towards a cleaner, healthier future.

6B adheres to the principles of ISO 14001 international standard for environmental management systems (EMS), and takes steps to actively reduce our environmental impact. This includes the implementation of a paperless office, and a range of measures to collectively reduce our emissions output.
