Chris Hill, founder and CEO of Northcoders, which is based in Leeds, Manchester and Newcastle, said: “Sandy has been an instrumental part in the success and growth of Northcoders over the past four years.

"It has been a great pleasure working with the team during a period of such rapid growth, and particularly as the group reached an important milestone when we successfully completed our AIM IPO earlier this year.

"I’d like to thank my fellow board members for their collaborative spirit and continued support throughout my time with the business, and wish them all the best for the group’s very bright future.”

Ms Williams said: “I am delighted to be joining Northcoders at such an exciting time for the group, and to become a part of its mission to address the ever-growing digital skills gap across the UK.

"I very much looking forward to working with the board and the Northcoders team to continue the excellent momentum the Group has seen in the past 12 months, as it continues to deliver on the growth strategy set out at IPO.”
