WithYouWithMe is a social impact company that helps organisations solve their digital skills shortages by identifying and growing talent in places others don’t look – whether it’s underrepresented groups in society or within their existing workforce.

If you're a first responder – whether that’s a current or former police officer, law enforcement or emergency services professional – and considering a career in technology, we’re here to support you to discover your potential and land a new role.

WithYouWithMe assists first responders to upskill with high-demand digital capabilities – and we’ll support you into a role with some of this country’s biggest employers.

Whether you are new to technology or a seasoned tech professional, our aim is to give you the opportunity to secure a meaningful career path, regardless of your prior experience or family circumstance.

How it works

The first step is to take our online self-paced assessments, which will generate a comprehensive report covering your unique skills, aptitude, learning style and ideal cultural fit.

From there, we’ll recommend some high-demand career pathways you would naturally excel at – and give you access to our free, industry accredited training.

You can speak to a member of our team at any time for personal support and guidance.

Finally, once you have completed your training, we have a global network of like-minded partners who are looking to employ talent just like you into their teams – and we’ll guide you through this process.

If you are ready to see what tech roles await you, sign up to our First Responders Program.
