The Tech industry in the UK is booming and is estimated to be worth over £180 billion, with big companies like Google, Improbable & Deliveroo through to tech start-ups like WhiteHat offering a wealth of exciting opportunities across London. As well as an innovative, fast paced environment, average salaries of £44,125 for an experienced Software Engineer in London and £51,861 for a Data Analyst mean there are lots of reasons to explore tech as a potential career.

WhiteHat want to work with you to boost your confidence within this field. You can be a complete beginner with no experience at all. All we ask is that you have:

  • A keen interest to learn
  • GCSE English & Maths at C/4 or above (Level 2 Functional Skills accepted)
  • A Level 3 qualification in any subject (A Levels, BTEC or NVQ or equivalent) - Year 13s completing your A Levels/BTECs or equivalent this July are welcome to apply

We will provide you with a completely free 6 week Summer evening course (one evening a week in July to early August) at our Head Office on Marylebone Road, London. You’ll be with like-minded young women exploring careers in tech and getting an introduction into coding and data analytics. You’ll receive a certificate on completion and the opportunity to progress onto a Level 4 Software Engineering or Level 4 Data Analytics Apprenticeship with salaries up to £24,000 p/a. Refreshments will be provided.
