A bit more about us!

Codecreators logo

We are Code Creators - a student led project teaching students how to code in Python. We came together and created this course as we realised that, nowadays, there is an ever increasing demand for graduates to understand the basics of programming and in many jobs especially those involving quantitative aspects, knowledge of Python is becoming more desirable everyday. Whether you are aspiring to a career in analytics, computer science or looking to start a digital business, our aim is to provide comprehensive beginner classes for people who have an interest in the subject but are unsure where to begin. You will gain fundamental understanding of Python and build confidence to independently delve deeper into the subject.

Enactus Sheffield is an international non-profit organization that works with leaders in business and higher education to mobilize university students to make a difference in their communities while developing the skills to become socially responsible business leaders. CodeCreators falls under the commercial portfolio of Enactus Sheffield because we generate income to financially support other local and international projects.

Enactus Sheffield is looking for students who are passionate about coding to join us in a variety of technical roles. If you can code in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, or Python then we have a place for you on the team, no other experience required! We have a variety of teaching roles, course design positions, and solution orientated jobs for those who are looking to demonstrate the ability to use technical skills to solve issues in a business environment.

What we offer in return for your time is the opportunity to drastically increase your employability while funding charitable causes. All the money raised from these projects goes directly to tackling issues in the community, we fund projects that deal with period poverty, elderly loneliness, African water shortages and many more. By joining an Enactus Sheffield commercial project you are dedicating your time to something that really makes a difference.

We also help you increase your employability by allowing you to demonstrate your technical abilities in the real world: take your problem solving out of the classroom to tackle live scenarios that arise in a business setting; design and deliver courses actually taken by paying students; showcase yourself to employers in ways your peers can't.
