Northcoders relocates to Manchester Technology Centre and appoints new COO
Northcoders, the coding bootcamp for the North, has relocated its Manchester campus from Federation House near Victoria Station to the Technology Centre on Oxford Road.
The business has also named Sam Caine as its new chief operating officer. Northcoders’ 30-plus teaching, partnership, marketing and senior leadership teams are moving to the new 10,000 sq ft campus, which can accommodate 100 students at any one time.
Bruntwood’s Manchester Technology Centre, part of Manchester Science Park, sits at the heart of the city’s Innovation District, the Oxford Road Corridor, and the Circle Square neighbourhood.
Chris Hill, CEO of Northcoders, said: “There is no better location for people to launch their coding careers than the heart of Manchester’s Innovation District. The new Northcoders Campus at Manchester Technology Centre will support our growth over the coming years.
“We have developed a fantastic relationship with Bruntwood Sci-Tech. They understand our ways of working, share our values and know what tech companies need.”
Caine joined the business as a lecturer in 2017 and first became head of classroom and then associate director before assuming his new role.
Hill added: “Sam is an integral part of Northcoders so his promotion is hugely deserved. He is incredibly talented and represents what we as a business are all about. Also being able to develop people from within is a key part of our vision and growth strategy.”
