New Graduates remotely join Pinewood’s fast-growing team
After welcoming 10 new placement students earlier this year, for the first time learning and working entirely from home, Pinewood Technologies has recruited a further 10 graduates to join their Software Development team in November.
Thrilled by the results of their remote training plan, with undergraduates already assisting with real projects in their teams, Pinewood are keen to continue expanding. The introduction of new talent into Pinewood’s software teams will support the DMS business to achieve their ambitious growth strategy.
Katrina McTernan, Early Careers Recruiter at Pinewood explains: “We’re a hive of activity right now, with a huge focus on taking Pinewood DMS into new markets. Our developers have truly embraced the lockdown, focusing on delivering great new features that are benefitting our UK and international customers. Now, more than ever, it’s crucial that we grow our teams to accommodate. This is a fantastic opportunity for our new graduates to start their career in a fast-paced environment, embracing new ways of learning, to quickly become valuable members of the team!”
Pinewood’s graduates will follow a similar boot camp to that of placement students. Each graduate will be assigned an experienced mentor, whilst taking part in live daily workshops via Microsoft Teams, learning everything they need to become a Full-Stack Developer. Graduates will be given a checklist to complete, keeping their progress on track and encouraging them to boost their technical knowledge.
Katrina concludes: “It’s our priority to find the best, passionate people for our business – we’ve invested a lot of time in creating the best remote training plan and we’re excited to see what the future brings. With over 20 developers having joined us remotely throughout lockdown, it’s an exciting new chapter for Pinewood!”
