North East digital firm launches bespoke programme for future tech talent

One of the region’s fastest growing digital companies has launched a bespoke programme for students, graduates and career changers.

Aiming to become the first choice employer in the North East, Bede Gaming is offering upcoming talent a route into the tech arena, designed to allow them to take charge of their career through gaining skills and experience working in its Gosforth office.

Coined as The BU Programme, it is open to students, graduates and anyone looking for a route into the tech industry through placements, work experience, practical projects and internships, whether your interest is commercial, operational or engineering focused.

Natalie said: “We like to do things differently at Bede and are breaking away from a one size fits all offering as part of our drive to encourage more people to explore a career in tech.

“The BU Programme is all about harnessing the uniqueness of the individual, upskilling, and allowing candidates to own their career journey with us.

“As a recent graduate myself, I know it can be a difficult decision to choose a career path before having experienced the industry, or getting a foot in the door with a company you’re really passionate about, which is where The BU Programme is helping to bridge the gap.”

The company will work closely with successful applicants to create a pathway suited to their aspirations and areas they’re keen to upskill in or experience for the first time.

Internships and graduate programmes are said to be paid opportunities.

Natalie Pattison, who recently joined Bede as the company’s first brand ambassador straight from graduating university, explains the decision to launch The BU Programme was made after spotting a gap in the market.

This came from high interest for graduate positions and speaking to students at careers events on what they are looking for from companies and potential employers.

Alex Butcher, managing director of Bede Gaming, added: “The BU Programme is an exciting step in the right direction to help the tech stars of tomorrow realise their talents and passion for the industry.

“It is one of the cornerstones for our current growth plan, which is taking Bede into new global markets. It’s critical that we can attract and nurture bright individuals with a willingness to learn.”
