Careers With Whitecode

Whitecode are concerned at the skills shortage in the Engineering Industry and throughout our history we have tried to encourage more students to enter this field.

We have close links with London South Bank University and numerous local Grammar schools, none more so than Wilmington Grammar School for Boys (a local school with specialist engineering school status), where our Managing Director Alex Hill has served as part of the Governing Body.

We sponsor A-Level school leavers for their degree courses and we also seek to employ Graduates from the field of Engineering.

We currently have 10 employees at various stages of their education who can call upon the experience of some of our existing Graduates, many of whom attained first class honours degrees following sponsorship from Whitecode and this practice is something we intend to continue.

Whitecode also works closely with the CIBSE Young Engineers Network, London Region Committee, which encourages young engineers to think about engineering as a career via school visits and careers fairs.

Graduate Testimonials

Studying while at Whitecode has enabled me to have advanced further than I would have had I not been working. The experience gained from full-time working allows me to put what I have learnt from the job into my studies and be able to relate the questions at university to work situations. Furthermore, having past students and students in the years above has been a massive help, as any problems or questions which I cannot understand, I have colleagues I can go to, to help me understand what is going on in the question. In addition, the financial situation is another benefit of doing a trainee scheme, no debt while studying but also earning money as well.
