TUI AG Push to Hire 1500 Technology Recruits Across Europe

LogoRecovery is starting to evolve for major organisations across Europe, moving from survival mode into a thriving state. The latest enterprise to make this shift is the TUI Group, which is looking to recruit 1,500 new staff across Europe this year. The company has invested heavily in digitisation of its operations in recent years and this is going to be the focus of many of the new roles, which fall in areas such as technology and e-commerce. TUI said that it expects bookings to return to normal in the summer of 2022 and the recruitment drive is part of the business' plan to ensure that it can optimise on this. Some of the roles that TUI is particularly looking to fill include data engineer, software engineer and technical analysts. Flexible and hybrid working have now become commonplace, not just at TUI but on a global level, and this means that the opportunities are open to a much broader market than was previously possible.

Torc Robotics Opens European Software Development Engineering Centre in Stuttgart

LogoStuttgart is going to be the new home of a technology and software development centre where Torc Robotics is currently developing Level 4 self-driving vehicle software for heavy-duty vehicles. Torc Robotics is a subsidiary of Daimler Truck and aims to be the first organisation able to launch a scalable and profitable self-driving product. Torc has access to a wealth of trucking technical and product expertise and it's this that will provide the foundation on which the new software development and engineering centre will build when it comes to creating the new product. Stuttgart is already renowned as an area of automotive expertise and there is a growing autonomous vehicle market here. Torc Robotics' investment in the new facility will help to increase the prominence of the area in this market, as well as creating a wealth of new development engineering jobs and opportunities.

Limmat Wealth Looks to Expand Asset Management Operations in Zurich

LogoThe banking and financial services world is going through plenty of change, not least when it comes to expanding existing operations. Earlier this year, German investment house, Feri, announced that it was continuing to focus on operations in Zurich after making an acquisition there in 2021. Feri bought Zurich-based asset manager Limmat Wealth at the beginning of last year and is now looking at expanding, and reorganising, its team in Zurich in order to be able to optimise all the potential that this acquisition has created. The current workforce in Zurich consists of around 25 employees but Feri is clearly planning to increase the number of people in its local operations in the months to come. In particular, Feri is keen to expand its capabilities for portfolio management in the city. The team in Zurich already serves 200+ private and institutional clients and this, too, is a figure likely to increase through 2022-2023.

Quality Assurance Engineer One of the Top 5 in-Demand Jobs

LogoA recent report has identified that quality assurance engineer is now one of the top 5 in-demand jobs, alongside others such as product designer and software engineer. This comes as the market for quality assurance jobs - like many others - opens up in the wake of the pandemic to integrate much more remote work and hiring. Geographic limits have been lifted and organisations seeking to fill positions, such as quality assurance engineer, are now taking a much broader view of where staff need to be in terms of location. There are many advantages to opting for such a global perspective on hiring, including that it tends to distribute innovation faster and ensures that there are opportunities for those who don't come from markets such as the US or Europe. Thanks to the internet, labour markets are being created today without the restrictions of geography, which is positive news for both candidates and companies where quality assurance jobs are concerned.

Merck in Push to Double Medical Engineering Production in USA by 2023

LogoGardasil has proven to be in great demand - a human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine made by Merck & Co that has been a game-changer in terms of prevention. However, there have been issues with supply over the past few years, especially in 2018 and 2019. As a result, Merck has now revealed that it invested $1 billion to tackle the issues of supply when they arose - and the business is now reaping the rewards of that investment in terms of increasing market dominance. The company now plans to push its Gardasil capacity even further with a 225,000-square-foot API plant at its site in Durham, North Carolina, as well as expansion earmarked for the packaging facilities in Wilson nearby. Over the past few years Merck & Co has been steadily increasing the capability it has for producing Gardasil and expects to be able to double HPV vaccine supply by 2023.

Walmart Global Tech in Enterprise Solutions Expansion

LogoGlobal Tech is the fastest growing team at the retail giant Walmart, and expanding even further in 2022 thanks to a recruitment drive across the whole company. Walmart is currently hiring 5,000 new team members, with much of this human firepower to be directed at enterprise solutions expansion.

Walmart is expanding geographically too, and planning to make Atlanta and Toronto the new locations for its increasingly vital tech hubs, with thousands of new jobs created in each.

eToro Crypto Sales and Trading Platform Launches $20 Million NFT Fund

LogoNFTs are constantly generating headlines and today have become an increasingly important priority for many companies. Now, the crypto sales and trading platform eToro has announced the launch of a $20 million NFT fund that will enable it to buy more NFTs and do more for creators. Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) are digital assets that represent real world objects. That could be anything, from property to art. Focusing on NFTs in this way represents the beginning of a new strategy for eToro. Once this has become fully matured it will allow the sales and trading platform to provide a broad spectrum of services to those who are looking to invest in NFTs. From pop stars to artists, many more high-profile figures have begun to use NFTs in recent times, particularly as a way to offer a stake in their brand. Companies like eToro will play a vital role in the way that this economy expands and the opportunities that exist to participate in it.

Sustainable Investment Behind the Fight for Financial Services Recruitment Talent

LogoSustainable investment is a key growth area in the financial services world and this is leading to a huge drive to secure business-critical talent. Competition for those who have the skills and experience to help build sustainable investment businesses is hot, with bidding contests becoming a reality and salaries spiraling. In fact, for top talent, financial rewards are increasing by around 50%. ESG talent are being identified as 'the stars of asset management' right now and this is making it challenging for even some of the biggest institutions to recruit the best people. Aligning investment with social benefits and climate goals is not new - it has had a momentum that has been building for some time - but the widespread commitment to it is. Assets in sustainable funds grew 53% year-on-year to $2.74tn in 2021. While demand for talented people to manage these assets is spiking, the talent pool remains relatively modest, which is why there are such significant opportunities for the right candidates today.

Strong Commodities Exports Support 858,000 US Jobs

LogoA report published in April of this year by the U.S.-China Business Council indicates that all 50 US states exported goods to China last year - and that these exports supported 858,000 US jobs. In fact, exports from America to China spiked last year, increasing by 21% which meant they reached a record high of $149 billion. Many of the rural states in the US were the ones that benefitted the most, especially in terms of commodities. Here, Chinese companies bought a wide range of goods, from soybeans to corn and pork. Many other sectors also benefited from the strong exports performance, including technology and pharmaceuticals. Strong goods exports were responsible for a significant level of job creation and were welcomed by many industries. However, ongoing issues with the travel and service industries meant that the export of services was not as successful. While the future of the relationship between the USA and China may not be clear, the export numbers for the past year have obviously had a big impact in the present in terms of supporting profitability and competitiveness among US businesses.

PI Firm Pursues Legal Recruitment in USA Expansion Plans

LogoExpansion is taking place across the legal sector today on a global level. Now, a business that began as a personal injury law firm in Liverpool, UK, is about to go global thanks to significant investment designed to fuel an international expansion. The Spirant Group oversees five companies in the legal and medical services sector, including Accident Claims Lawyers UK. It has now secured more than £13 million in funding that will give the company the resources to pursue new markets, in particular in Dubai and the USA. Spirant has more than a decade in the industry, now has 150 staff and a turnover of more than £20 million. The company launched Accident Claims Lawyers UK back in 2012 and then took the business to Australia in 2017. The next step - seeking to establish a foothold in the profitable USA market - is a logical one and, the firm says, part of a robust long-term strategy to help it deal with shifting financial and regulatory environments.

£200K Compliance Jobs Boosted by Russia Sanctions

LogoWhile the war in Ukraine - and subsequent sanctions on Russia - have created a challenging environment for many in the financial services industry, not every role is negatively impacted. In fact, there are some - in the compliance sphere - that are enjoying a resurgence as a result. Sanctions specialist is probably one of the most in-demand legal compliance jobs today as a result of the war in Ukraine. Sanctions are not new but the effect of the round currently being applied to Russia means that there is unprecedented pressure on compliance teams. This is not just with respect to reviewing what the impact of sanctions is likely to be but also when it comes to ensuring that policies, procedures, systems, controls and guidance all reflect the current situation. This has been exacerbated by the way that sanctions have been introduced on a gradual basis, requiring many institutions to be in a constant state of updating and reviewing.

Many of the tech companies taking part in NY Innovation Lab are data-driven, including Draivn, which collects device data from fleets and converts it into real time analytics for insurers and brokers.

Pharma R&D Pipeline Reached

LogoR&D pipelines and new product launches reached record levels last year with sustained growth throughout the pandemic creating very positive figures for 2021. This is according to a new report that showed 5,500 planned new clinical trials began in 2021, a 14% increase on the year before. Not only that but the total volume of products that were actively being developed last year peaked at more than 6,000. This is a huge increase on previous years - for example, it's 68% more than in 2016. The report also revealed that emerging pharma companies are increasingly having an influence over new pipelines and projects. In 2021, new companies were responsible for 65% of the molecules in the R&D pipeline. In 2016 this figure was below 50%. In fact, almost all the indicators are up when it comes to pharma R&D, which shows just how much the life sciences have expanded over the past couple of years.
