Tascomi are passionate about helping young people in schools and universities across Northern Ireland to realise the prospects associated with a career in IT.

Each year we provide opportunities for students from schools in our local community to join us for Work Shadowing, to give them a first hand experience of working within the IT Sector.

This month, Maya, a 4th year pupil at Bloomfield Collegiate, joined the Tascomi team for one day to catch a glimpse into the role of a Software Developer. She took some time out to share why she chose Tascomi and how workshadowing matched up with her expectations:

I picked Tascomi for my work experience placement because ICT has always been my favourite subject at school and I wanted to expand my knowledge of the practical side of programming. The staff at Tascomi were very welcoming and I was briefed on what I was going to do when with them. I learnt basic coding skills and I was given an opportunity to create and build an App. I even got the chance to observe staff meetings, where I found out the exciting plans for the company. Overall, it was a very rewarding experience and the friendly staff were happy to answer any questions I had. Thank you to everyone at Tascomi for making this a great day!”

Jake, a 4th year pupil at Grosvenor Grammar School, spent two days at Tascomi HQ this month with the Marketing team and he was happy to share a little bit about his experience:

“I have a really keen interest in Art, so I chose Tascomi to spend some time with their Marketing department. I got logged into their animation software and watched some tutorials on what I could create. I then was able to create my own animation, which was cool. I also spent some time in St Georges market in Belfast setting up for an event. Tascomi were hosting a workshop and I helped set up a pod at the biggest tech event in Ireland. Everyone at Tascomi was really friendly and helpful. I look forward to doing some more animating in the future!”
