Sumaya Hassan is now a junior frontend developer at the brand’s headquarters in Solihull. The University of Birmingham launched its popular Boot Camps programme last year and has since welcomed 135 students to its 24-week intensive Coding and Data Analytics courses.

Sumaya said: “Coming from a life science and health care background, learning to code was a huge challenge for me, but it was totally worth it. I couldn’t be happier in my new role with Gymshark and I have the advice and support of the course leaders during and after the course to thank for that. 

“It’s been brilliant putting what I learnt into practice at my new job. I can’t recommend a career in technology highly enough for anyone looking for a change or to upgrade their skills.” 

With the rising demand for web development and digital skills across all industries, the University of Birmingham Boot Camps are designed to prepare students with the knowledge and skills they need to tap into today’s technological economy and help bridge the nation’s skills gap. 

Once they complete Boot Camp, learners receive ongoing 1:1 career coaching and a quarterly networking event with local professionals. The University of Birmingham is ranked amongst the world’s top 100 institutions and has been challenging and developing students for more than a century, bringing people from across the world to Birmingham, including researchers, teachers, and more than 6,500 international students from over 150 countries.
