Atlantean Media is a global network of like-minded, creative individuals with a single purpose – to deliver premium, detailed content focused on the environment and specifically innovation in water. Founded and led by award-winning environmental journalist Tom Freyberg, Atlantean Media is a global company based in Worthing, West Sussex who have been running for over a decade.
In 2020, Tom reached out to me via Freedom Works community hub and was looking to become involved in hiring an apprentice as part of the new Kickstarter campaign. He wanted to know more about how it would work and had been approached by someone looking for a role.
I supported Tom in finding out more about the scheme, how it might work and looking at options and costs for Atlantean Media for the future. We specifically wanted to focus on the skills that this person would bring, but most importantly the skills that Atlantean could give to this role. Tom really had a vision of wanting to expand the organisation and needed support with certain areas of his business. The scheme was a great idea, so we registered and started looking for a suitable candidate. We were introduced to Andrew and in the end, the kickstarter scheme didn’t quite work for Atlantean – but Andrew did and today he has now had a year’s service with the company and has just been made permanent! Working with Tom has been a great experience and I have learnt a lot about the work that he is engaged with and how I can support him for the future. I have recently put together a new contract for Tom and supported him with setting out deliverables and a bonus scheme for his organisation.
