1. You start the journey with a #dmexcotravelselfie 2. The first day begins with all the newbies having to queue because they forgot to print their passes beforehand. 3. Meet up with friends you haven’t seen since dmexco last year. 4. All conversations  start with how poor the mobile reception and wifi are at the show. 5.

As a technology recruiter and self-proclaimed geek, the immediate and huge success of the recently released Pokemon Go has me thinking about the future of the technology industry in relation to recruiting. I have seen first hand how the ‘on trend technology’ of 2016, like augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR), has directly affected recruiting. Implications on technology Nintendo has really hit the ground running with their first AR game, Pokemon Go. AR puts imaginary elements, like Pikachu, into the real-world. People can’t seem to get enough of this alternate AR world. Within four days of Pokemon Go’s release, it already has more users than Twitter, whilst only being released in

There has been a lot of conjecture regarding the impact Brexit would have on the ability of the UK to perform on an international stage. Indeed, there have been arguments, from both sides of the debate, suggesting efficiencies could be increased/decreased depending on your point of view.

In 2014 $234b (US) was the estimated turnover of digital tech businesses in the UK. According to research by Oxford Economics $17.5b (US) will be invested in London alone from 2015

The recruitment and talent acquisition landscape has shifted drastically since Red Executive launched in 2009. Back then, internal recruiters in the Digital Technology space were virtually non-existent. The identification and engagement of new talent belonged to HR.

The benefits of having an internal acquisition team representing the business on the open talent market quickly became apparent. In Work Rules, Google’s SVP of People Operations Laszlo Bock wrote of the need for new candidates to understand the culture and values of the business, as well as the
