Charlie’s focused on spreading the word about Code Nation and getting everyone as excited about coding as we are. She’s based at our Manchester School and creates the amazing content that people see on our social media platforms, as well as the material we use to communicate with our network of students, graduates and businesses.
She believes that Code Nation is on to something really special, and has first-hand experience of some of the problems our students face. She spent five years at boarding school, studying English Lit, History and Economics at A Level and in 2016 graduated with an unconditional offer from Manchester University to read Economics.
However, she left in the same year because it was clear university life wasn’t for her. The course was oversubscribed, lectures were all theory-based, her peers weren’t at all interested in the curriculum and no one would have noticed whether she turned up or not.
Like many of our students, she wanted a different, more proactive experience, and sought out a role as a Marketing Assistant at SoulmateFood, where she created marketing collateral and curated social media posts. She was then approached by Hatton Boxing to be their Marketing Executive, and spent 18 months there before joining us.
She loves being part of a team that’s inclusive, forward-thinking, and provides opportunities for people from all walks of life to secure themselves a career in the digital sector. She’s inspired every day and loves opening doors for budding coders to create future-proof careers with huge earning potential.
Outside of work, Charlie’s a big fan of baking at home and an even bigger fan of the Great British Bake-Off. She can squat 100kg, plays Premier Division netball and is a proud dog mum of 4!
