Applications Now Open for Black Codher Bootcamp

Lydia Whicher, Associate, EMEA Engineering

We are excited to share that our Goldman Sachs Engineering teams in Birmingham (UK) have partnered with Niyo Network and Coding Black Females to select 10 aspiring Black women coders based in the West Midlands, to take part in a bootcamp sponsored by Goldman Sachs. Selected individuals will embark on a full-stack development bootcamp over the span of 30 weeks, which will build their software development and programming skills, and set them up for successful careers within tech. Upon completion of the bootcamp, these women will have the opportunity to join Goldman Sachs in Birmingham for a 6 month internship.

Hauwa Ottun, Project Lead at Black Codher, said: “We are pleased to be partnering with Goldman Sachs to empower the next generation of Black female talent into the tech industry. These 10 women will gain access to mentorship from Goldman Sachs professionals, to ensure that the women are fully immersed in a learning experience that empowers them. They will also be supported in securing their dream roles. We have upskilled over 100 women since March 2020 through our Black Codher bootcamp and are excited that many women, who would have been otherwise unemployed or in low-skilled employment, can now move on to work in companies like Goldman Sachs to provide innovative solutions for the Engineering industry."

Gurjit Jagpal, Managing Director and Head of Goldman Sachs Birmingham, said: “Goldman Sachs Birmingham is thrilled to be sponsoring the Black Codher Bootcamp in partnership with Niyo Network and Coding Black Females. Diversity and social mobility continue to be key focuses for the firm and it is our pleasure to be empowering these women on their transition into technical careers. The intention of our Birmingham office is to tap into the wealth of engineering talent in the region, and now we are excited to be part of expanding the ecosystem here too.”
