Join our fully-funded Women-in-Tech scholarship programme, sponsored by our hiring partner NTT DATA UK.
Register for our online skills assessment (that's right, no CVs necessary here) and consider your application made! No prior workplace experience required, or relevant study - if you think you've got the right stuff - learn to earn today!
We've partnered with NTT DATA UK as our Women-in-Tech sponsor - a company that cares for their employees, their development and their careers. People are what make NTT DATA UK different. Without their people, they cannot deliver the levels of service and state of the art solutions their clients have come to expect.
NTT DATA UK will be by way of scholarship, offering a fully-funded opportunity for up to 30 future female tech professionals to enrol onto this digital skills academy focused on in-demand Microsoft skills.
The opportunity is subject to passing the relevant online skills assessment and meeting enrolment criteria, but does not demand the traditional CVs and cover letters usually required by the industry.
Certifications were a big factor for me joining the programme. My husband had the right certifications, but I never had the opportunity - even though I was working in the sector. Now I'm working for a great organisation, with certifications recognised globally!

We're eliminating hiring bias by empowering fresh tech talent with employer-led and highly in-demand skills, coupled with immediate employment opportunities with our sponsors.
We look for skills and potential over credentials. No CVs here - if you think you have what it takes, register for the short (we promise) online assessment and consider your application made!
If you successfully pass the digital assessment, we'll be in contact to discuss the opportunity requirements and give you much more granular detail on the programme to support you to make a better and more informed decision.
This will support candidates who are just beginning to work with cloud-based solutions and services or are new to Azure. The perfect foundation for a new career in cloud technology
Responsibilities for an Azure Developer include participating in all phases of cloud development from requirements definition and design, to development, deployment, and maintenance performance tuning, and monitoring.
Knowing that success in business is not all about tech skills, you will also get exposure to expert tutor support, weekly reviews and Business Leadership and Management CPD content.
Upon completion of your 8 week bootcamp, you'll interview with the programme sponsor and if successful, start your new career with them!
It's really simple - register and sit the short digital skills assessment. To us, and our hiring partners, the CV is dead. No matter your background, previous studies or work history - if you think you have the base-line skills needed then you can learn to earn as our employer partners understand and invest in talent that doesn't always come 'fully-formed'.
