Recruiment Specialists

Defining the future

The evolution of the Internet of Things means that a host of technologies are becoming more interconnected, from city infrastructures to transport, consumer products, homes and wearable technology. Each will increasingly impact how we work, buy goods and services, travel, power our vehicles and spend our time.

Many of the changes in smart technology and interconnectivity are being led by the automotive industry, with a host of related industries arising from its vast investment into research and development.

Innovation in autonomous vehicles is driving a surge in the science of data, analytics, continuous improvement and cyber security, because it is the capture, measurement and storage of data that allows engineers to refine the reliability of this technology. Meanwhile, new environmental agreements from influential markets like China have driven further investment into alternative propulsion for private and commercial transport.

Finally, cutting-edge consultancies can use their business interests in motorsport (especially Formula E) and automotive manufacture as a real-world testing ground for innovation, developing the smart technology that will power the cities, transport and consumer goods of the future.

Who we work with

Many of our longstanding clients include cutting-edge OEMs, consultancies and start-ups in this diverse field. We also work with government-funded initiatives, often under Non-Disclosure agreements for international assignments. The challenges of hiring in this sector are many, and we are at the leading-edge of talent identification for a raft of connected and burgeoning technologies.

In these markets we have to be skilled at identifying potential as many of our candidates are hired to work in fields that are untested, breaking new ground as they grow. Pace is also crucial, as we are often deployed to locate the brightest talent for confidential projects at short notice. Like many of our clients we are problem-solving as we go, working at the very leading edge of talent in new skills, helping to create the future.
