What is the biggest problem your clients have when recruiting?

Clients tend to have a similar issue in struggling with irrelevant online applications. These applications take up time to sieve through which is something that is easily combatted by the consultants at JCW. We specialise in vertical markets and are able to make sure that the CVs that reach our clients are filtered and relevant for the briefing that we have received.

What’s the most sought after skill set in your market at present?

The most sought-after skill in IT Audit at the moment is data analytics or experience with Big Data. With a lot of firms seeing a rise in the use of Data Lakes and Data Warehouses, internally regulating their structures is something that has become a current trend in the market.
