We caught up with Josh, now a Senior Recruitment Consultant, to find out about how his journey started, the changes he’s seen over the 8 years he’s worked within the industry and how he sees the future for those looking for work in SAP.
The road to Recruit 121:
After studying for a degree in IT at The University of Glamorgan between 2002 – 2005, Josh began to look for jobs in the IT industry. He started working with Recruit 121 in May 2007 and was immediately drawn in by the fast paced, success driven environment that IT recruitment offers.
Josh is one of the leading suppliers of freelancers to one of the biggest software companies in the world. Francesca Romagnolo, Resource manager at SAP Italia said: “Josh is very professional, pragmatic and solution oriented. His communication style is very effective and always to the point.”
Changes in the industry:
Josh is always conscious of the ever growing role of social media, particularly LinkedIn, in both SAP recruitment and the SAP industry itself. Josh uses LinkedIn to connect with SAP consultants or analysts who are looking for work, to take the time to understand their skills and preferences in order to find the right candidate for the right role – this fits in with his belief that an open, transparent and honest approach to business is extremely important.
The future of SAP jobs:
In line with SAP CEO Bill McDermott’s announcement of ‘Digital for Customer Engagement’ – a cloud CRM platform designed for individuals, small teams and SMBs but with enterprise-grade capabilities, Josh sees a move away from on premise SAP solutions to cloud based solutions on the horizon. This development brings across the expectation that there will be more vacancies for the user interface aspect of cloud.
As a Senior Recruitment Consultant at Recruit 121 Ltd, Josh specialises in locating SAP consultants for both Permanent and Contract roles across EMEA and MENA. If you are a SAP consultant or analyst, let Josh take the time to understand your skills and preferences so that he can screen our current and future SAP openings for you.
