Working in a data centre offers a unique blend of challenges and rewards. As a Data Centre Technician, you’ll be at the forefront of technological advancements, constantly learning and adapting to new innovations. The fast-paced nature of the industry ensures that no two days are the same, making it an ideal environment for those who crave variety and excitement in their careers.
The data centre industry is constantly evolving, and Ireland is leading the way in Europe when it comes to data centres and has some of the most talented workforce in this field. There are a few reasons why Ireland is a hotspot for this industry.
At GemPool, and for our Infrastructure team, one client and in particular their data centre teams are of very high priority. We continuously pipeline candidates all year round to make sure we are prepared for all situations that arise for teams and ensure we are in a strong position to provide relevant candidates once each team requires additional resources. In this blog, I will break down how we ensure the very high standard of delivery that this client needs from us.
The Data Centre industry has had an unusual 18-24 months, from hyper growth to sustaining growth and power and electrical concerns. While other industries struggled, Data Centres continued to flourish but not without its challenges.
At GemPool a big part of what we do in our infrastructure practice is recruiting top talent for a number of our clients in the data centre space. It is a truly unique (and testing environment) and exciting space to get into with so many possibilities for career progression. Whether you are a hardware enthusiast looking to break in and get that much-needed industry experience or a more seasoned technician looking to advance your career we have got you covered.
Preparation is vital for anything you plan on doing, whether that be training for a marathon or interviewing with a company you are excited about working with. Regardless of the situation, if you don’t put in the work, the results are going to be disappointing which will then hold you back from your end goal.
Has your role become a little bit stale? Looking for a new opportunity within the cyber security space but don’t know where to start? This happens to us all regardless of the line of work we are in but the hardest part for people looking to change jobs is where exactly do they begin.
It might sound simple but covering the basics first is the easiest way to start. Building a strong network, creating a CV that showcases your experience and the benefits you wouldbring to a new company are key.
