Everything You Need To Know About Northcoders' Career Support

There's far more to Northcoders than just learning to code.

Our whole philosophy is built around guiding you through the job-seeking process to ensure you find work you'll love, fast. By the time you graduate, you'll be confident in your ability to contribute to the company you choose to work for, and you'll be able to hit the ground running on day one.

Connecting You With Companies

We're connected with a large network of companies who know, trust and hire from Northcoders. Whether you want to work in a huge corporation like Barclays or a start-up, we'll have something for you. 

  1. Employer Sessions - We'll invite various companies to come to present to you during your time at Northcoders. You'll get a feel for what it might be like to work for each company as well as the kind of company you'd like to work for, and have the chance to ask questions.
  2. Companies at Your Graduation - We'll invite representatives from companies who are hiring to join you at your Graduation either via our Live Stream or in person, where you'll present your final projects. You'll even have the chance to network (and maybe set up an interview) - there and then!
  3. Company Introductions - On a group and one-to-one basis, we'll talk you through all of the opportunities available so you can make an informed choice about where you choose to interview.
  4. In-House Support - We have our own in-house team of Career Development Specialists, who are right there with you and available to talk to in person, every day. They'll be the ones doing your one-to-ones, group sessions, CV and interview support - and helping you set up your interviews!
