London Stock Exchange Group welcomes Northcoders, Chamber Business Awards Business of the Year winner

Northcoders is opening London Stock Exchange markets as winner of Business of the Year at the Chamber Business Awards 2018. Now in its 16th year, the Awards are one of the showpiece events in the business calendar, highlighting the role of business in delivering growth and prosperity for the UK and local communities.

Northcoders, members of Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce, is a training establishment for adults, teaching them to code and then placing them in permanent jobs as software developers. Their vision is to fill the shortage of talent in the technology sector with a diverse, well-trained pool of graduates. They were crowned winners after impressing the judges with their efforts to address the skills gap in coding and encouraging pupils from all walks of life to start careers in an emerging market. Their relationship with business is impressive, ensuring high quality training is given to match employers’ needs.

Speaking about their win, Chris Hill, Managing Director of Northcoders, said:
"We've always believed what we do is special, but to be recognised with the British Chambers of Commerce's Business of the Year award is something we could never have expected and are incredibly proud of and inspired by. To have the honour of opening London Stock Exchange is an experience we will remember for years to come."

Francis Martin, President of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) said:
"I’m always amazed by the quality of entrants to the Chamber Business Awards, and Northcoders are truly worthy recipients of our top honour, Business of the Year. Through high-quality training, they help to bridge the gap between the worlds of education and business. They are a terrific example of an organisation working to develop the talent of tomorrow. We wish Northcoders every success, and hope they enjoy the opportunity to open the prestigious London Stock Exchange."
