Skills City Champion - Melissa Hale

Melissa Hale was working as a coffee barista at Starbucks, but after completing the Software Engineering bootcamp, she now has a thriving career as a Low-code app developer at Onepoint Consulting. Melissa from Manchester had held a wide variety of jobs in the past including a barista, an equestrian director, a security officer, and a researcher at several top universities. After completing an undergraduate degree in zoology and then a master’s in molecular biology of parasites and vector-borne diseases, her tech journey didn’t follow the traditional route.

In addition to learning the technical skills she needed to kickstart her tech career, Skills City provided her with CV support, interview preparation, and the development of her soft skills.
