Expanding into Europe
30 May 2018
There's no doubt about it, the European job market is huge and with Understanding Recruitment rapidly expanding we are looking to Germany where the capital, Berlin has approximately 3.3 million residents and is the largest city in Germany with the second highest population in Europe after London. With tech companies flocking to the German capital, Berlin seems like the logical step for a recruitment specialist in the IT and software field.
The tech giants are moving in
Whilst Germany has experienced a rocky past, the economy is now recovering and there's no surer sign that the current surge of interest from tech giants who are taking up residence in the city. Household names including Google, Apple, Amazon, and Facebook all have offices in Berlin, and that makes up just part of the list of tech companies adding to the employment possibilities for those in the industry.
Technology companies such as Facebook only need to look to their current audience to understand the scope of the market. The social media platform has over 29 million active monthly users in Germany, and it makes sense for them to have opened local offices to ensure they have eyes and ears on the ground there.
As specialists in IT and software recruitment Berlin has been on our radar for some time and seemed a logical move when we began our search for the ideal location to launch into Europe. With our expertise in the field, and the growing number of companies searching for the ideal candidate in the region we are looking forward to our upcoming launch and a bright future in the German technology recruitment market.
