Recruitment firm bridges economic and gender gaps in STEM at inner city school

Recruitment firm develop has partnered with Canon Barnett Primary School in Tower Hamlets to see business growth directly impact the education and prospects of local children.

The recruitment business, which operates in London, Berlin and Miami, is introducing coding and other science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM)-related topics to children and young people in their local area. Consultants have visited the pupils at Canon Barnett to talk about what makes software engineering so exciting and what opportunities will be available to them in the future. 

The firm aims to bridge the socioeconomic and gender gaps faced by local children and help fuel future talent pipelines by donating £25 to the school for every placement made. A develop statement said that based on 2021-22 figures, this will amount to a total of more than £20k going directly towards STEM education in the form of toys, learning platforms and equipment.

Specialising in placing candidates skilled in Python, Java, JavaScript, PHP, DevOps and .NET, develop is a specialist software engineering recruitment agency.
