Welcome Cohort 36

Cohort 36, the first intake of candidates to go through the in-person 'Boot Camp' recruitment day since before the pandemic! After an intense day of interactive tasks, shortlisting and interviews, we finally formed our 36th Cohort. We are so proud of everyone who took part in the busy day and congratulate the apprentices who successfully gained a place on the course.

Everyone has now settled into their workplaces and it's the perfect time to introduce you to them.

Meet Cohort 36 below:

Nabilah Islam

What emoji best describes you and why?

I think the game controller emoji describes me best 🎮, in a nutshell I love gaming but honestly this got me into marketing as well, I used to be a 3D Modeller and a UX designer for games during college. Through this I found out my passion for graphic designing and loved the freedom to think creativity!
