How to attract top executive talent: 5 tips

What do up-and-coming executives want from a job? Increasingly, the answer is “much more than a fat paycheck.” Most are the offspring of a generation that normalised sacrificing personal well-being for a brand of success that was measured in salaries, and have realised that money can’t always buy day-to-day fulfillment. They can afford to be a bit choosy, and they’re looking for an all-around deal: a job where they make a comfortable living, doing things that are meaningful to them, surrounded by a team and atmosphere they like. How do you market to them? Sell a lifestyle--not just a job.

Why contract engineer jobs could be perfect for you

Whether you’re just starting your career, looking for your next step up, or rejoining the workforce after having a family, a contract engineering role could be just what you need on your CV. More and more companies are offering contract engineering roles, because skipping the permanent hiring process saves them the time and money – and they’ll pass some of those savings on to you. Fire and security engineers in particular will find contract work pays much better than permanent roles.

How the Internet of Things is transforming telecoms

The pandemic has massively accelerated digital transformation in almost every sector. One technology that’s skyrocketed since 2020 is the “internet of things” (IoT). IoT is now part of the new normal in telecoms. One survey predicts the global IoT telecoms market will grow to over $22 billion by the end of 2023 as demand for connectivity rises. Major players like Huawei, AT&T, Verizon, Vodafone and T-Mobile are pushing the bandwagon further.

Post-COVID opportunities for fire and security

The fire and security industry played an essential role in the response to COVID-19. Now the “new normal” offers the sector an unprecedented opportunity to rewrite its own rules. New research reveals that 86% of UK business owners feel ‘somewhat to very confident’ about growth prospects at the end of 2021 – a 10% increase since January. Many cite opportunities created by the pandemic.
