Our biggest differentiator, however, is that we are a specialist recruitment agency in the sectors of IT, Finance and Engineering.

What does that mean?

This means that our recruiters do not consult outside their areas of specialisation. For example, you won't find a mechanical engineering recruiter dabbling with chemical engineering, or a Finance recruiter who specialises in Chartered Accountancy recruiting in the prudential risk niche.

How does Network Recruitment achieve this?

With more than 30 years in the business, this specialised focus has enabled our recruiters to build a significant base of technical knowledge and expertise. We invest in ongoing consultant training and develop our recruiters to become the best in the industry. Similarly, they are educated and undergo extensive technical training in specific niche areas in these three critical sectors. This training enables them to understand the requirements of available jobs in the market and equips them to assess candidates' technical ability and needs.

Why does it work?

In today's job market, the need for specialised skills has become apparent and we cannot ignore this need. For this reason, hiring managers, employers and job seekers prefer to engage with a recruiter or recruitment agency that specialises in their niche. They would like to work with recruiters who understand their industry and can speak their language.

Executives and employers trust Network Recruitment because of our flawless matching of candidates to jobs, effectiveness and fast turn-around time, all of which set us apart from our competitors.

How analytics can drive smarter Engineering and Construction decisions

Three applications illustrate how companies are beginning to embrace data solutions while establishing a foundation for more ambThree applications illustrate how companies are beginning to embrace data solutions while establishing a foundation for more ambitious initiatives in the future.

The construction business faces a major productivity challenge. While labour productivity in the global economy has increased by an average of 2.8 per cent a year over the past two decades, and in manufacturing by an impressive 3.6 per cent, the construction sector has registered a mere 1 per cent annual improvement. As the capital-project partners responsible for execution, engineering and construction (E&C) firms are well positioned to drive changes that can help close this troubling gap.

To do so, some are turning to data-driven solutions that have already revolutionized many other corners of the economy. These techniques are emerging as vital tools for improving capital project outcomes and reducing risk. By enabling E&C companies to leverage the vast amounts of data they already collect, analytics can uncover critical insights that both speed up and improve the quality of management decisions. In particular, they can help project teams assess market conditions, portfolio composition, and individual project performance.

1. Should we bid on this project, and if so, how much?

Usually, E&C firms must decide whether to bid on a project based on incomplete information. Major construction projects often have a five- or 10-year timeline, if not longer, which makes it difficult to accurately define the scope and predict likely complexities or complications up front. Companies rely on staff experience to weigh potential risks and profitability, but those judgments are subject to inherent biases and may be affected by ambitious growth targets or individual incentives.

Misjudging risks and underestimating costs can prove disastrous. In a business with typical margins of 5 to 7 per cent, underestimating a bid by 10 per cent without the ability to recover the extra costs can make the project an expensive money-loser for the E&C firm. Conversely, overpricing a project by building in too big a contingency cushion will likely mean the loss of the contract—something a firm can ill afford in an industry with win rates of merely 15 to 25 per cent.

Data modelling can replace cognitive bias and flawed assumptions with fact-based insights about a project’s statistical chances of success. By analysing historical information such as types of labour and contract arrangements, regional spending trends, and project size, analytics can assess the probabilities of project outcomes. Those, in turn, enable teams to better evaluate the attractiveness of a given project, re-balance the portfolio away from jobs that tend to underperform and calculate the right level of contingency to include in a bid.

2. Are the subcontractor bids reasonable?

When E&C firms receive bids from subcontractors, they turn to procurement specialists to assess the quotes. These individuals often rely on parametric estimates to evaluate the quoted costs and tap the expertise of project managers, slowing down the process. Complex estimates pass through multiple reviewers, with each one adjusting the estimate based on his or her own experience and judgement (as well as potential bias).

Despite these extensive consultations, the lack of an empirical foundation makes it hard for engineering companies to credibly challenge a subcontractor’s estimates beyond relying on generalized rules of thumb. In addition, while many companies maintain (and subscribe to) databases of parametric cost factors for bidding, they rarely follow up with the actual costs at the end of their projects to gauge the accuracy of those estimates.

Analytics can provide a solution to these problems. By analysing individual drivers of past project costs, such tools can enable E&C companies to rapidly assess a realistic level of effort and cost for a project and compare those figures to subcontractor quotes.

3. Is the project about to run into trouble?

Traditional project controls often lag the incurrence of costs by days or weeks, which makes them an effective tool for retrospective reporting but not for managing ongoing projects. The controls also don’t account for the interconnectivity of different metrics and the unique combinations that may have outsized effects on performance.

Unable to continually track and grapple with all the data a project generates, managers tend to follow a few key performance indicators. The resulting incomplete picture of the project’s daily progress can lead to flawed decisions on the ground.

Analytical tools can deliver a significant improvement on this front by allowing companies to quickly and continuously analyse project data and assess progress, enabling managers to react faster to potential problems. With real-time or near-real-time project controls in place, an E&C firm can track events or problems known to correlate with the erosion of bid margins, such as a one-day weather delay or three consecutive days of a subcontractor’s failure to complete designated tasks.

Engineering and construction firms wishing to prepare for the digital age will need to establish a new operating model. Such a shift requires treating digital initiatives as part of the core strategy, adapting processes and organizational structures, and ensuring staff have the necessary training to deploy, troubleshoot, and lead digital initiatives. But the first step in such transformations is applying analytics to assess current operations and performance.

Companies also need to establish standards for the data they collect in the future. Whether it’s a full-fledged data management system or simply a standard way of tagging and collecting information, standards for what you want to collect and how you collect it are critical to a long-term analytics strategy.

As digitization penetrates all parts of the economy, including engineering and construction, capitalizing on the insights hidden in data will become essential. E&C companies reluctant to invest in the systems and skills needed to harness what they have collected should remember that competitors who have successfully made the move are already reaping significant benefits. Firms that embrace analytics can make sharper bids, thus avoiding unprofitable projects and increasing their win rates on those with strong margin potential. They conduct savvier negotiations with subcontractors, reducing costs and increasing decision speed. And they anticipate problems with ongoing projects, allowing managers to intervene before potential delays and cost overruns turn into real ones. As the industry increasingly deploys these tools, the companies that get in early will likely emerge as leaders.

South Africa’s fast-growing economy
South Africa's informal sector is believed to be small in comparison with other developing countries, its demonstrating sustainable growth, particularly in respect of employment.

informal sectorDid you know that the informal sector provides employment and income to more than 2.3 million people and business owners in South Africa? In addition, studies reveal that one in six South Africans who are employed, work in the informal sector. Although South Africa's informal sector is believed to be small in comparison with other developing countries, its demonstrating sustainable growth, particularly in respect of employment.   

What is the informal sector?

Any small enterprises with less than five employees, based in low earning neighbourhoods, and which generate low earnings are considered to belong in the informal sector. These enterprises are not incorporated or registered for taxation.

The role the informal sector has on SAs economy

The effect this sector has in poverty-stricken areas is remarkable – it alleviates poverty. These economic activities provide income for people in these areas.   In fact, these enterprises provide about 850 000 paid jobs, according to a 2013 study which revealed that this is almost twice the amount the formal mining sector made that year.

The study further reveals that while 60 000 jobs were lost due to employment cut-backs, 150 000 jobs were created by one and multi-person enterprises. Further studies uncovered that the sector, mainly in the construction, retail trade and services, manufacturing and communication industries, created more than half a million jobs in the sector in 2013.

However, reports suggest that while the informal sector has a positive impact on the country, it does bear the risk of closing down within six months. Researchers estimated that the loss of 100 jobs in the informal sector is equivalent to losing 60-80 jobs in the formal sector, something policymakers should take into account.

Will it solve unemployment?

Not entirely. However, it should be an integral part of solving the problems of poverty, unemployment and inequality by absorbing people not employed by the formal sector.

Inclusive strategy

If the country aims to attain economic growth, it needs a clearly defined inclusive economic growth strategy that allows the poor to participate. An enabled, well-supported and increasingly dynamic sector will positively influence the economy through job creation and comprehensive growth. As a result, the country will have an informal sector that generates more practical incomes and better quality employment.

Different approaches such as formalisation and providing financial services will enable this sector to flourish as a new member of the economy.

Soft skills that employers are looking for
Thinking of developing your soft skills? In this blog, we highlight three soft skills that employers are looking for.

Employers, job, Network Recruitment

employersIn the modern economy, landing your dream job is not solely dependent on your technical skills. Research indicates that a professional's ability to communicate, highlight their analytical skills and their ability to work well with others matters more to employers than ever before.

Whilst interviews often include conversations around a candidate's technical skills, it has become increasingly important to assess the individual's chances of fitting in with the organisation's culture and work environment.   Senior specialist recruiter, Nina Mans, advises that a candidate's soft skills are a huge part of the decision-making process. She explains that a candidate's soft skills, or lack thereof, are a good way for specialist recruiters to assess if the candidate will be the right culture fit or not.

"In my opinion, the culture of an organisation is reliant on its diverse employees' and how well they work with each other i.e. traditionalists (pre-1946), baby boomers (1946 – 1964), generation X (1965 – 1976), millennials or generation Y (1977 – 1997), generation Z (after 1997). Because of the huge difference in the way each generation operates and makes decisions, harmony in an environment might be difficult to achieve. Therefore, soft skills are a good way of assessing if the candidate will fit in with the ethos of the company," explains Mans.

If you're thinking of developing your soft skills, here are three skills that employers are looking for:

1.    Creative problem-solving skills

According to Vicki Salemi, a career expert at Monster, employers are looking for professionals who know how to solve issues on their own.

2.    Be an effective communicator

Employers want their employees to have good communication skills, both verbal and written.

3.    Leadership skills

Your capabilities to effectively lead a team will be essential as you move up the corporate ladder.

Mans says that management can encourage the development of these skills by empowering their staff and creating an inclusive working environment where professionals are exposed to a range of scenarios.  In addition, management should provide staff with constructive feedback and the opportunity to learn from their mistakes without being judged, but rather celebrated for overcoming a challenge.

The current job market is a difficult one and quite passive. Mans understands job seekers' frustrations when they apply for a job and don't receive any feedback. She advises job seekers to be focused in their approach and to target the right companies and people. "Once you send your CV, ensure that it fits the advertised role 100%. Furthermore, follow-up by picking up the phone and presenting yourself to the recruiter as well," she concludes.

Java vs Kotlin
Will Kotlin take on Java as the most popular programming language in the world?
programming languages

programming languagesJava and C have still ranked the most popular programming languages in the world, but will Kotlin take over? 

According to the Tiobe Index for January 2019, Java, C, and Python remain the most popular programming languages in the world. Other popular languages include C++ and Visual Basic, all ranked highly on the index.

While Python gained popularity significantly over the past year, Java remains the most popular language. It has dominated the rankings for years and still shows high year-over-year growth, meaning it is not going anywhere for now.

There are multiple reasons for the extended popularity of this programming language, from its ease of use and capability to its widespread adoption and development.

Powerful and widely adopted

Many developers learn Java as one of their first programming languages, with its relatively simple syntax making for easier reading and understanding of functionality. The language is also object-oriented and has a useful API, which provides many easy-to-use features.

While these make for a powerful and accessible programming language, the popularity of Java is the direct result of its adoption across platforms and its community investment. Oracle has made Java available for free to all developers, and this has cultivated a strong community which produces a large collection of open-source libraries.

Perhaps most importantly, Java can run independently on the Java Virtual Machine – making it ideal for web programming and cross-platform applications. Java developers can create applications for desktops, mobile, online platforms, and more, thanks to the language's versatility.

The programming language currently has a variety of uses and is used to build everything from Google docs to mobile games. Most commonly, it is a tool to make small application models for use in web environments like e-commerce websites or financial trading platforms.

A number of useful software platforms are also created using Java, including Netbeans, Eclipse, and IntelliJ. While it can be used to build impressive video games like Minecraft, it can also be used in an embedded environment, as any system only needs 130KB of RAM to use Java technology.

The versatile programming language has also become the default for scientific applications. The programming language is taught at universities and various other educational institutions worldwide, and is also available as a course from massive online open course (MOOC) platforms, including UdemyEdX, and Coursera.

Kotlin

Java is not without its competitors though, even though they do not appear in the top 10 rankings for popularity of programming languages. While it does not appear on the top 10 list, Tiobe predicts that the programming language Kotlin will enter the top 20 list this year due to its rapidly growing popularity.

Kotlin is designed to fully integrate with Java and the Java Virtual Machine but offers more syntax that is concise and the option to compile to JavaScript. It also fixes a number of issues, which Java suffers from. For example, its null reference is controlled by the type system, arrays in Kotlin are invariant, it has proper function types and does not have checked exceptions.

Google also officially supports Kotlin for mobile development on Android, and the language is included as an alternative to Java in Android Studio. Kotlin is currently ranked at 31 on the Tiobe Index, but it is expected to soar up the rankings over time.

However, it still has a long way to go before it takes on Java for the title of the most popular programming language in the world.

Women: the key to fighting climate change in Africa
Empowering females in Africa could be the answer we need to combat climate change.

climate changeEmpowering females in Africa could be the answer we need to combat climate change, writes www.infrastructurene.ws

For Africa to be better equipped to fight climate change, cope with disasters and build its green energy sector it needs to empower its women and girls.

This was the view of African delegates discussing the implementation of the Paris Agreement in Katowice Poland recently.

According to Mafalda Duarte, head of the Climate Investment Fund, research shows that agreements on the environment are more likely to be ratified and projects around natural resources, such as water, are more likely to succeed if women are involved in decision making.

Addressing needs

Dana Elhassan, senior gender expert at the African Development Bank added that empowering women in the context of climate change empowers a family, a community and a country.

"You cannot solve a problem with half the team. A lot of the unpaid work that women do, such as collecting firewood and water, and caring for the family, are massively affected by climate change – so we have to make sure adaptation initiatives address their needs, vulnerabilities and potential," she said.

Economic gains

When women are empowered equally to men there is a massive leap forward in economic gains: a recent McKinsey study found that if women were participating economically as much as men, they would be adding 28 trillion dollars to global GDP by 2025.

In Africa, lack of access to finance has resulted in an estimated $42 billion financing gap for women entrepreneurs across business value chains.

Yet unlocking African women's ingenuity and giving them access to finance could generate technological advancements that help deal with climate change, believes the African Development Bank.

Five signs it’s time for a career move

job tipsIn a previous article, The flip side to job-hopping, Network Recruitment shared about the changing perception to job-hopping, particularly in the contracting job market. There are vital benefits that you can access from being a job-hopper, for example seeing an increase in your earning potential and gaining a variety of skills.

With 2019 in full swing, it's necessary to take stock and do some career soul searching to determine if it's time to venture on to greener pastures. Although the grass isn't necessarily greener on the other side of the corporate office park, it's possible that you've learned all you can from your current environment.

The question then becomes, 'how do you know when it's time to move on to another job opportunity?'  Below are some signs that it's time for a career move.

You're going through the motions…

You do your job and you do it well.  However, somewhere between eight and five, you lose the joy.  You may have started your job as a trainee and currently, you have a lot of experience to show for it; maybe more than your current position requires.  If you can't utilise your experience in your current job, it's probably time to start looking for new opportunities where you can put your skills to use.  Like a plant ready to be re-potted, you won't be able to grow without a different environment.

…as well as the emotions

If you're experiencing mostly negative emotions regarding your job, it's time to curb the emotional wildfire.  Are you bored, angry, depressed or unhappy at work most of the time? Do you have physical discomfort, like stomach-aches, headaches or insomnia due to constant work-related stress? Investigate the reasons – and change the source of the problem – or get out.  Unhappiness could undermine your health, and your negative feelings could isolate you from colleagues, which makes the situation even worse.

You're foreign to the corporate culture

In many ways, corporate culture is like a personality.  In a person, the personality is made up of values, beliefs, underlying assumptions, interests, experiences, upbringing and habits.  These factors result in a person's behaviour.  You just not feel comfortable with the unspoken codes of behaviour of this 'personality' you have to work with every day.  If it doesn't fit now, it probably never will.

You just can't manage the management style

Do you need to report every time you run to the bathroom or make yourself a cup of coffee?  Life happens, children get sick unexpectedly or your dentist appointment is due.  If your manager isn't flexible enough to manage you like the professional and skilled employee you are, it might to time to manage yourself out of there.

Your job is dominating every area of your life

If your job demands all of your energy and time, with no regard for work-life balance, you could be on dangerous ground.  Burn-out and divorce could leave you with no family, no peace and a possible loss of reputation.  Get your priorities straight and find a job that values you.

You've done everything possible to get your foot in the door; updated your CV profile, included references, joined online job platforms and submitted dozens of applications with no result.  Let Network Recruitment manage your job search so that you can achieve the result of moving to your desired role. Making use of one of Network Recruitment's specialist consultants is the ideal solution to your job search headaches.

What does a recruitment consultant do?

Recruitment consultants facilitate the entire hiring process – from receiving the job spec from the hiring company/ employer to supporting the newly-placed candidate in their new position.  Niche agencies, such as Network Recruitment, specialise in a particular area of staffing.  Consultants at Network Recruitment, in particular, are highly trained and have in-depth knowledge about the specific industry's background, market and jargon.

What you need to know

  • Recruitment refers to the process of attracting, screening and selecting qualified candidates to fill a vacant position.
  • Organisations often outsource this process to professional recruitment agencies, where recruitment consultants are briefed to act as co-ordinators between the candidate and employer.
  • At Network Recruitment, consultants are highly skilled and experienced to match candidates to specific positions, according to the employers' expectations and corporate culture fit. 

These are the benefits of using one of Network Recruitment's specialist consultants

One of the main advantages of using a specialist recruitment consultant is access to job offerings that you as a job seeker won't come across in your typical search.  Furthermore, they are able to offer advice about specific industry trends and how these influence your career search.

What you need to know…

  • Network Recruitment maximises your efficiency as a job seeker, as we manage the job search process on your behalf.
  • Consultants have connections to various companies and hiring managers in your industry – an advantage that often leads to placements. 

This is what you can expect from a Network Recruitment consultant

Possibly the most distinguishable skill between a successful and unsuccessful consultant is the ability to listen to the candidate and to read between the lines.  A reputable recruitment consultant will keep the candidate's wishes top-of-mind, treat their profile as confidential and provide honest advice.

What you need to know…

  • The consultant should schedule a face-to-face meeting with you to discuss your aspirations, skills and needs.
  • During this meeting, the consultant will also get a feel for your personality and temperament, which play a role in corporate culture fit.
  • Remember that consultants can't guarantee a job or job interview. 

What is expected of you?

It is important to remember that it is YOUR job search!

What you need to know…

  • Follow-up with the consultant on a regular basis via e-mail or telephone.
  • Be honest with your consultant and disclose possible sensitive information, such as a criminal record or if you were fired from a previous position.
  • Supply the consultant with a profile, which is targeted towards a particular industry.
  • Tell the consultant if you don't want them to send your profile to particular companies, such as your current employer.
  • Mention any important factors or constraints that they should keep in mind, such as a disability or special needs.

Network Recruitment has proven itself for over 30 years.  Contact us to turn your job aspirations into reality, hassle-free.
