Silkstream Christmas Dinner 2015

As we welcome in a brand new year (#Hello2016!), we remember all of our favourite Silkstream moments of 2015. Including our fantastic Christmas dinner at Mangetout in Southend! (Seriously, check out Mangetout sometime. Make it your New Year’s resolution in fact!)

The end of 2015 saw the Silkstream family back to being the five of us again. Having completed her year-long apprenticeship in social media, Chloe left in October to pursue a career which focused more exclusively on social media and we wish her all the best in the world at her new job in Intu Lakeside!

And so, we are now accepting applications to join our team as an apprentice. If you are interested in undertaking a Web Design / Development apprenticeship or a Digital Marketing apprenticeship (or know someone who is), please send us your CV! We are looking for someone to fill a full time position with us after completion of the apprenticeship and therefore passion, enthusiasm and willingness to learn and keep on learning is a must! (Also, if you enjoy pool you’ll be happy to know we have one in the games room…)
