Philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways, but the real task is to alter it. Karl Marx
Today's climate of political uncertainty means that governments around the world have to meet an increasingly intricate set of demands to maintain global peace and security. The numerous and varied commercial organisations which provide the defence sector with research and development, equipment and services face many challenges and opportunities in the coming decades. From weapons to naval resources, requirements such as increased safety and greater cost efficiency must be carefully balanced to meet the needs of the present day. Experienced leaders both with commercial and technical expertise are vital to this industry sector.
The aerospace industry has been particularly challenged by current economic and political demands, the growing strength of emerging markets and rapid advances in technology. Organisations must seek to be increasingly innovative in their approach, from both a commercial and technical perspective, in order to compete. As a consequence, the need for innovative and skilled leaders is greater than ever. The task of recruiting executives of the highest calibre into civil and defence aerospace organisations has become more problematic, as a significant proportion of the talented individuals it needs approach retirement. Our extensive knowledge of this specialist sector makes us the ideal strategic partner to source these niche talents on a global scale.
Naval & Marine
Marine is a fundamental element of many key industries, and demand for its services is forecast to remain high. The renewables sector is a significant area for marine growth and will remain so for many years to come. This global industry is highly diverse and encompasses many and varied activities, demanding experienced individuals with a broad range of skills.
Naval suppliers are continuing to experience a high level demand from major projects in the ongoing construction and maintenance of surface and submarine fleets. Meeting the skills shortage is a major challenge, and future projects in the pipeline mean high demand is set to continue for some years to come. It is essential that organisations match the significant efforts of other sectors, who are seeking to acquire specialist experience gained in naval and marine industries, to fill their own talent gaps.
Our specialist team understands where these unique individuals fit into this complex industry. It is essential to look to international markets and ensure talented individuals are attracted by the varied challenges the naval and marine sector has to offer.
