Case Study

BUILDING A DIVERSE TEAM @ DELOITTE

Code First Girls partnered with Deloitte to support their early career tech consulting teams across the UK, with a particular focus on sourcing candidates in the South West of England and Bristol area.

BLOWN AWAY BY

CANDIDATE POTENTIAL

Deloitte and Code First Girls have been working together for years, and they were a perfect partner for the first Nanodegree cohort. With 30 roles to fill, Deloitte specifically wanted to target the emerging tech-hub of South-West England; Bristol. Not only did Deloitte hire all 30 Nanodegree scholars that they funded, but they were also so blown away by the candidates that they hired additional Nanodegree candidates from the Code First Girls community.
