Coding school hires seven new recruits

Northcoders has made seven new appointments across the business.

Three tutors, two managers, a designer and mentor have joined the team across Manchester, and recently-launched Leeds’ campus in the city centre.

Northcoders has been called the ‘coding bootcamp’ of the North, which trains students how to code.

Founder of Northcoders Chris Hill said: “The success of our business is built on the experience and expertise of our team so we are delighted to welcome these new recruits.”

The new tutors are Tom Simmons, Vel Georgieva and Alex Cox, all qualified coders and will be responsible for delivering curriculum, mentoring students, and researching changes in tech.

Aaron Ward, previously from onezeero, has joined as the new talent and partnerships manager. Aaron is an experienced IT recruitment specialist who has worked solely within the .Net software development arena across the North West of England

Maddison Griffiths is the firm’s new on boarding mentor and will be helping people to get onto Northcoders’ full time and pre-courses.

Helen Batra-Squires has been appointed as a designer and will be working closely with the marketing team on all aspects of Northcoders’ external and internal communications.

The final new starter is Charlotte Prior as finance manager, who worked previously for Turning Point. She will be working with the senior leadership team on the financial management of the business.

Vel Georgieva said of her new role: “Northcoders is a fantastic organisation and I am now delighted to be part of it. It offers an in-depth approach to learning that is not just based on how to simply code, but how the code works under the surface.

“Offering that level of insight is both refreshing and exciting as we help to create the coding stars of the future.”
