Work Experience Placement: Andy Hammill

We all remember work experience, right? For me it was going into a geology lab, crushing rocks and (apparently) looking for fossilised pollen. Yes, my Dad was a little disappointed that I didn't follow in his footsteps!

Creode have recently been approached by Leeds City College to offer work experience placements to their Computer Science students, so over the next few weeks we'll have some new (and very young!) faces in the office.
