I joined Jenrick IT as a graduate with a BSc in Business and I.T. from Southbank University. After 12 years with the company, I’m working as UK Business Accounts Manager managing a number of key accounts within our Financial Services division covering Investment Banking, Clearing and Exchange Trading. Not only that, I have been developing a number of accounts in the Consultancy and Digital Media sector.

I love working at Jenrick and although we have been going almost 50 years, there’s still a real start up and entrepreneurial feel to the business. We constantly innovate the way we do things and as anyone who knows our industry well enough, it’s never boring!

I’ve been able to establish relationships with some of the biggest brands in the world as well as helping a number of tech start-ups get off the ground, I love the versatility of the role - one minute we are building a test team for a major investment bank, the next we are recruiting a CTO for a Shoreditch start-up!

I especially like the amount of positive feedback we receive from our Clients and Contractors. I often get comments that our recruitment process is one the ‘most comprehensive’ in the market. It confirms to me that the way we do things in Jenrick, is the right way

Outside of work I really enjoy skiing, cycling, cooking, live music and collecting art.

Introducing...

James Davey

Manager

With 13 years within IT Recruitment, having progressed from a Consultant through to Senior Management. Through-out this time I have worked across multiple disciplines working with clients and candidates across Data, Development and Programme Management to name a few; I have a breadth of experience working with SME’s through to FTSE 100 companies, anything focussed around helping organisations through Technology Transformations is what I love to do.

The opportunity to work with an established business that is renowned for its Service and Relationships- Jenrick is very highly thought of amongst its existing clients and provided me with a great platform to build upon.

I am Managing the already brilliant existing team but hoping to pass some of my experience of growing Technology Recruitment brands within London to the Jenrick IT brand.

I hope to be able to help the existing team improve themselves both professionally and personally through coaching, training, mentoring and I am also hoping to grow the Jenrick IT office whilst maintaining that core culture that made me join in the first place.

I used to play a lot of sports, particularly football as I was an all round avid sports fan but now with a young family I spend most of my time with my 1 year old son.  When time allows it I try to see family and friends and socialise.

How 2018 unfolded and what we see happening in 2019

2018 wasn’t a particularly straightforward year, there were many factors such as Brexit - big political decisions that came with that and on top of that the media were forecasting a slowdown of UK GDP growth. All this gave the feeling of doom and gloom. Thankfully due to the great British resolve, for the most part, these factors were sidelined by businesses with the attitude of ‘We just need to get on with it, irrespective’. For us as a business it did really feel like business as usual, just with a side of caution.

Cloud, enterprise software to drive 2019 IT spending, says Gartner

Software as a service will boost 2019 enterprise software spending 8.3 percent. Overall, IT spending will grow 3.2 percent in 2019.

Global IT spending is expected to grow 3.2 percent in 2019 to $3.8 trillion as enterprise software, cloud and digital transformation projects boost growth, according to Gartner.

The projection, outlined at Gartner's Symposium/ITXpo in Orlando, accounts for a shift to everything as a service. John-David Lovelock, an analyst at Gartner, noted that enterprises are shifting to pay for use models and that's impacting for the forecast. 

For instance, software as a service will boost 2019 enterprise software spending 8.3 percent. IT services will grow at a 4.7 percent clip in 2019 due to digital transformation. Data center systems spending will grow 1.6 percent in 2019 since enterprises are more inclined to go cloud than buy their own gear.

The growth in IT spending is due to a favorable business climate, but there are a bevy of wild cards including tariffs and currency fluctuations. 

Other key points from Gartner:

  • Server sales will fall 1 percent to 3 percent every year for the next five years.
  • IT services will grow because enterprises are looking to optimize spending.
  • PC, tablets and mobile phone spending will grow 2.4 percent in 2019. Demand for enterprise PCs should remain strong until 2020 due to the Windows 10 upgrade cycle. But the PC market may be held back due to the Intel CPU shortage.
