I am thoroughly enjoying working at Kolodo as a Front-End Developer. Being part of such a welcoming, enthusiastic and talented team is the best I could have hoped to be a part of. I have learned so much already in the time that I have spent here, being involved in great projects and facing many challenges. I can't wait to see what the future holds.

Hannah Scott, Kolodo

As Junior Account Manager for Kolodo, I have learnt so much more than I ever thought possible. From client relationships, website design and build to finance - my role has been the perfect graduate job to break into the industry.

Amelia Eccleson-Davies, Kolodo

Initially, I started off doing two weeks of work experience for Kolodo, then secured myself a summer internship with the company. I am thoroughly enjoying every aspect of it, as I’ve always wanted to work in this industry. My advice for new graduates would be to get your foot in the door as soon as possible.
