Northcoders have an advantage in that they've done something before they came to Northcoders... Those life and people skills are actually quite useful. I need people who can potentially become a team lead.
It's the well-rounded skill set and that work ethic that we are really attracted to with Northcoders. We've tried the graduate route in the past, and they are missing all those real-world skills.
It's a relatively short course, but the skillset that the seven people we've hired came out with far exceeds our expectations of what's possible in that time
