Manchester headquartered Northcoders – the coding bootcamp for the North – has added three new team members to its ranks.

The first new starter is Steph Slater who has joined as a talent and partnership co-ordinator. Her role will see her generate leads, prepare and organise interviews for students with potential employers and liaise with Northcoders’ network of hiring partners. Steph studied English (BA), Humanities/ Humanistic Studies at Manchester Metropolitan University. She also worked at the university as an intern where she helped international students learn fluent English and integrate into UK life.
Alanna Chamberlain is Northcoders’ newest designer. Her focus is on developing the company’s branding and rolling it out across all on and offline comms platforms. Before joining Northcoders Alanna was a freelance graphic designer and illustrator working within the B2B sector.
The final new recruit is Lucy Adams who is a digital marketing executive. Lucy is now overseeing all of Northcoders’ digital marketing and social media activities. Lucy studied Journalism at UCLan and joins from the Eword where she worked as a digital content executive.
James Brooke – co-founder of Northcoders – said: “2018 is turning out to be a ground breaking and record year for Northcoders but we never forget that the talent of our team is at the very heart of our success. We are really pleased to welcome Lucy, Alanna and Steph – especially as their expertise and experience are already adding value.”
