Leeds company opens tech doors for gradsNews
A Leeds based company plans to open the doors to the world of computing and IT for non-technical graduates.
Software and computing and IT can be viewed as a closed shop for graduates without technical degrees. However, a Leeds based company, TPP, wants to change this. TPP is a healthcare software company with the aim to revolutionise healthcare delivery. The company has clients across the UK and in China and the Middle East.
TPP want to train Software Developers and Analysts their way and just want bright and committed graduates to join them in Leeds. TPP believes graduates can succeed in the sector no matter what their background.
"I graduated in 2012 after four years of Philosophy and had no idea what to do next," says Tim, a software developer at the Yorkshire company.
"TPP's advert caught my attention because of the 'No Experience Required' and chance to improve and link up healthcare. I thought it was a good opportunity to do something worthwhile, so I gave it a go."
He says the training and supportive company culture allowed him to get to grips with complex coding languages and programming.
"From the start I was thrust into a team and picked up coding very quickly. It's a hands-on approach and I love it. You learn a lot and three years later I am still learning every day. All the skills I learned in my degree became part of my job."
"We always have an eye on the healthcare side of things and within months of working at TPP I was making changes that had a real impact on people working in healthcare settings."
Leeds has become a hot bed for Computing and IT careers for graduates. According to a recent report by legal firm Irwin Mitchell, the company now has quicker economic growth than London.
