DRIVING TALENT ACQUISITION @ BT

Code First Girls partnered with BT to deliver a 3-month coding curriculum to selected female candidates from our community.

Finding

female talent

BT employs over 100,000 employees globally and is growing rapidly across the tech sector. Talent leaders were simply not finding enough women to hire into technology roles.

To fix this problem, in consultation with BT, Code First Girls created a 3-month programme called furtHer.

SOARING TO

NEW HEIGHTS

Code First Girls screened, interviewed and selected highly engaged candidates from our community of women. Then, the candidates were trained by Code First Girls, using an innovative curriculum. At the end of the training, BT successfully placed the women into technology roles across the UK.
