We love welcoming new students and businesses to the Code Nation family.
We’ve helped them find amazing new staff through our apprenticeship offering, and we recently spoke with their HR Manager Janine Turner about what she’s made of her time working with us and how our apprentices have flourished in their new roles.
We have been looking for a developer for some time now without success. Although we had carried out a number of interviews, we were struggling to find the right combination of skills and personality to suit our business.
Having decided that the solution might be to take a longer-term view and grow our own talent, we started looking at ways in which we might be able to achieve this. After hearing about Code Nation, we got in touch, and we were soon welcomed into the organisation with a tour of the Manchester campus along with all the necessary information.
Straight away we were impressed with the whole set up – from the bright, modern city centre premises, to the thought and attention that had clearly been given to every aspect of the curriculum – not just in terms of coding, but in the wider aspects of developing well-rounded, work-ready individuals.
It didn’t take us long to decide that we wanted to work with Code Nation and that the apprenticeship route was right for us. We have been totally blown away by the support we received in recruiting. Within a couple of days, we were invited to attend an assessment session In Manchester.
We met a fantastic group of candidates, all keen and eager for the opportunity. The following day, the shortlisted candidates were at our offices being interviewed for the role. We were so impressed by the quality of candidates available to us that we ended up hiring two!
Our new apprentices have now started their 12-week boot camp at Code Nation, and we’re looking forward to having them with us later on this year. We can’t thank Code Nation enough for their help in getting us to this point, and we’re excited about our continuing relationship with them.
