Security Essen demonstrates the Security jobs market is strong


Fire & Security, Building Services, Security Events...

It has been a busy few days here at Security Essen, Germany. It is a great place to network with industry professionals, share knowledge and discover up to date industry news and technology.

I am just one of more than 42,000 people from the Security industry descending on Essen to check out what the 1,000+ exhibitors have to offer. Security manufacturers are showcasing products across surveillance systems, intruder alarms, access control, biometrics, security and fire alarm systems, IT security, armoured vehicles, fire protection systems etc. We are all obviously interested in the new technologies on display such as 4K against 1080p.

So many people and gadgets in one space undoubtedly creates a buzz, but beneath the chatter and impressive display of tech the real buzz for me is coming from the apparent strength and growth of the security jobs market.

I have discussed many security recruitment opportunities with exhibiting manufacturers, as well as some of the installers that are also visiting. Many of my contacts have security job vacancies they would like myself and the Eligo Security recruitment team to work on for them, including a retained assignment in CCTV sales for a leading brand. I have also made contacts with several Security Professionals wanting to discuss what security job opportunities are out there for them.

I am going to be busy when I get back into the office! So if you are looking for a new job in security whether it be management, sales, design or engineering now might be the time to get in touch. Perhaps you have job vacancies that you need to recruit for and would like to work with a specialist security recruitment agency. Then please do get in touch.
