The Opportunity:

  • Have you got a keen interest in coding technologies?
  • Are you interested in starting an exciting career in IT?
  • Do you want support and mentorship from highly skilled professionals?

In response to the region’s software developer skills shortage, we are working with Wymondham based Netmatters, a full-service technology company, to offer hard-working, self-motivated individuals from the Great Yarmouth and surrounding area, the opportunity to join the FULLY-FUNDED Scions Coalition Scheme. The initiative provides all the building blocks necessary to form a successful career in software and web development.

Delivered by a team at Netmatters, the hands-on course is run in a commercial software development department, with full training and support provided by their experienced professionals.

Applicants who are successful at the sifting stage will be interviewed and those identified as having the talent and aptitude for the training will be offered a place to join the funded scheme. Once learners have completed the course and have proven themselves to have a great attitude to software development work, they will be presented with the potential opportunity of being offered a position by C A Design Services (or one of the five Norfolk-based sponsoring technology companies), as a junior software developer.

If you are offered a position at C A Design Services (CADS), you will work on projects such as our in-house developed ‘StoreSpace’ software, a retail space planning application that is used by the largest supermarkets in the UK including M&S, Sainsburys, Argos, ASDA and Waitrose. This year we’re taking StoreSpace global, implementing it for clients in South Africa, the Philippines and Malaysia.

Key points:

  • There is no cost to join the course
  • Applicants are welcome to apply from Great Yarmouth and the surrounding area
  • The course is run by Netmatters and takes place at their office in Wymondham
  • Just like a full-time job, learners will be with Netmatters for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week.
  • Learners will be asked to follow the same rules and standards of practice as the rest of the team.
  • Based on how you progress within the course, the scheme can last anywhere between 3 and 9 months
  • CADS may offer to take you on at any point, and if agreeable, help hone your skills in specific areas of interest
  • Costs for train travel between Great Yarmouth and Wymondham rail stations may be available to CADS selected candidates. Details on application.
