Continuing with our series of articles about the sector trends in the UK at JobisJob we now analyse the evolution of the Health sector. As in the previous article about the IT-Telecomm sector, we will be focusing on the jobseeker’s interest and the job vacancies posted between March and May of 2017.
Looking back, we can see how over the years globalisation has transformed cultural identities, consumption patterns and employment. Today’s citizens buy and sell things over the internet, connect with people from all over the world and adopt blurred, global identities rather than the strong national identities of the past.
In the face of this global and homogenising trend, the local is asserting its position and importance as a guarantee of authenticity and uniqueness. Local agents are taking advantage of the space of flows and organising themselves around self-management processes, virtual networking and pop-up stores, increasing their scope to levels that were previously impossible. At JobisJob we are going to analyze this trend for the transformation of the local into a global phenomenon and, in order to better understand it, we will be interviewing Alexandra Cánovas and Martaé Martinez from Las CulpaSS (The Guilt), a growing fashion brand that is leading the way with its products “sewn with rage and care” for the world.
Nowadays the importance of digital skills is beyond all possible doubt. Since computer science began surrounding us, the number of these skills required by companies has increased dramatically. Recruiters use social media to look for candidates and people search jobs on job boards. Digital Networking has overcome traditional methods and NGO’s use it to promote their activity. Digitalization has changed every single aspect of our lives.
Governments are aware of this and have carried out programmes to develop digital skills among the population, but… what’s the current state of this situation? We interviewed Gabriel Brezoiu, General Manager of the Group of the European Youth for Change (GEYC) and asked him about his work helping young people develop their digital skills.
In his own words, GEYC is a Romanian established organisation active at European level. We are empowering young people to create a positive change in their community by taking advantage of the digital tools.
