Launch of MapCareers at the GEOBusiness 2015 Event
MapCareers, a new service matching candidates and employers for career progression within the UK and European Geo-Spatial industry, was officially launched on May 27th at the GEOBusiness 2015 event held in the Business Design Centre, London.
Jeremy Crisp, founder and CEO, who has been active in the recruitment industry for more than 20 years, launched MapCareers at the GeoBusiness show to great acclaim from visitors and other exhibitors who are actively recruiting. Initially Jeremy started with on-line recruitment, and then followed by working for a professional services company developing their in house recruitment services as an external offering. For the past eight years Jeremy became very much involved in the GIS recruitment service. With a vast amount of contacts Jeremy used collaboration techniques to bring people and companies together with a career service to develop peoples expertise and help with CV’s and added consultancy for prospective candidates. This experience and knowledge is now the backbone of the service that MapCareers can offer organisations and career seekers to match skill requirements with the available expertise.
The primary aim of MapCareers is to help bring candidates and organisations within the UK and European Geo-Spatial industry together. With the help of networking capabilities, MapCareers will be able to ensure that both the client and candidate can be confident in the ability for them to match available opportunities. Within their network, MapCareers works together with business partners to provide their clients and candidates with the most trustworthy and best possible quality of recruitment service within the industry. MapCareers will be offering a unique service, which goes to great lengths to pre-qualify clients and candidates to ensure the match is 100%.
This applies to experience at all levels from long-term candidates who have been in the industry for many years to new graduates just entering the industry. MapCareers will be able to help experienced candidates with a professional CV service to ensure the right match, and for new graduates, MapCareers will offer in-depth information, training opportunities, and free advice on the industry. With experience of the many wide and various technology areas from surveying through to GIS software application development, MapCareers is able to ensure that the match of candidates to clients will be based on technology and skillsets. This also applies to position placement such as business development, marketing and sales roles through to technical and field based operations. This will make sure that the candidates or employers’ time is not wasted with unnecessary information that is not relevant to positions available and requirements of employers and candidates. One of the partners of MapCareers is pGNOSIS (Greek for knowledge) who are well known by Jeremy, and have been for a number of years.
Whilst setting up MapCareers Jeremy sought the experience within the Geospatial industry to ensure the end user would be happy with the service that MapCareers could offer and pGNOSIS, with their services, is found to be highly complementary as a total workforce solution that would be able to help with training services. pGNOSIS offers training within the Geo-Spatial industry for graduates, professionals, and those that have an interest and wish to become involved in the technology.
