Callum's 2023 recruitment round up

By Callum Roper

With 2023 feeling like it's passed in the blink of an eye, our FMC Smart Industry team have been reflecting on what they've been up to this year. 

From new tech launches to huge funding rounds, there's been plenty of change happen since January… which has kept our teams as busy as ever helping organisations in the space to secure their next best talent. 

We'll be posting round ups from members of the Smart Industry team every week in the run up to Christmas to get the inside scoop on what 2023's recruitment scene has been like. 

So with no further ado, here's what Callum from our Digital Construction team has to say about his year:

Who was the coolest client you worked with this year?

 "NavVis: its launch of VLX3 took mobile reality capture to the next level. For example, a water treatment facility can be scanned in 12 minutes to a BIM model and a traffic intersection can be transformed into a topographic survey in just over half an hour!"

Callum's top tip to secure a tip top candidate:

"A transparent and swift process is vital! Candidates appreciate being kept in the loop and given honest feedback from prospective employers. If they are not invested in the role, the business and the recruitment process then it's always harder to get them over the line."

What was the most interesting role you worked on this year?

“I’d have to say the Senior Director of Mobility position - this was a particularly challenging role which saw me engaging with senior stakeholders at American DOTs to secure an industry leader who would be able to make the move into contech sales.”

What are you excited for in 2024?

“Next year promises to be a great year for start-ups, especially those bringing new innovative solutions that will see us combat the climate crisis. I’m all for making the industry more sustainable and accountable for its environmental impact.”

We think Callum's pretty great, but the proof is in the pudding. Here's what a client had to say…

"I really enjoyed working with Callum. He was very knowledgeable but more importantly, he was easy to work with, friendly and extremely accommodating of what we needed. He was thrown quite difficult roles and timelines and aced it! Gladly recommend him."
