Before Jenrick I worked within an in-house recruitment team at one of the largest FMCG organisations, where I was heavily involved with the social media strategy for global recruitment and employer branding.
I knew recruitment was the field I wanted to progress my career within and was intrigued to explore opportunities working not only for a smaller recruitment company but also for an organisation that offers plenty of training and development to take your career in the direction you want it to go. I enjoy helping to enhance peoples' careers and at the same time, helping businesses to evolve and succeed by securing the best talent.
I’m now delighted to be working as a Talent Search Specialist at Jenrick IT. Everyday is different within the IT industry and the roles are always changing and developing – which is really exciting.
Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with close friends and family. When I’m not working, there are always different events going on. So I like to keep busy. I’m also a big Game of Thrones fan!
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:
There is little doubt, in the current employment market, that demand is outstripping supply. This is particularly true within the highly technical roles (Architects, Software Engineers, Technical Testers, Cyber Consultants, Mobile Developers….etc)
