What exactly is ASIC?

An ASIC stand for application-specific integrated circuit and it is an integrated circuit which isn’t intended for general purpose use but rather for a specific application, such as a hand-held computer. An example of where this circuit might be used is the chip designed to run in a digital voice recorder. There are constant developments happening with this product and the complexity of the product has grown considerably. ASIC jobs are very specific and the candidates who apply for these roles need to have an excellent knowledge into the industry.

There are various types of ASIC, such as digital ones where they use a hardware description language to describe the functionality of the circuits. Modern ASICs can include memory blocks or entire microprocessors which include Flash or RAM. Traditional ASICs used gate array technology and an early successful commercial application of this circuitry was found in low-end personal computers during the early 1980s. They tended to only address logic functions whereas the more modern, mixed signal ASIC designs incorporate both logic and analogue functions. The mixed signal circuits are used to make a complete system on chip (SoC). This is where a complete product or system is integrated into a chip and no other components are needed which can cut down costs.

Generally ASICs are used for a product that will have a large production run and the ASIC will hold a large amount of the electronics needed for a single integrated circuit. They tend to be reserved for high volume products since the cost of an ASIC design can be very high. Despite this high cost they can be very cost effective for many applications. The ASIC design can be tailored to meet the exact requirement of the product and the number of additional components used within the application can be significantly decreased as it is all contained within one integrated circuit. Cell phones are a good example where these circuits are used as it is a consumer product with high production volumes. Redline recruitment agency will be able to offer candidates the current jobs that are available in this industry.

The Big Four Management Consultancies

The Enron collapse and ensuing investigation prompted scrutiny of their financial reporting, which was audited by Arthur Andersen, which eventually was indicted for obstruction of justice for shredding documents related to the audit in the 2001 Enron scandal. The resulting conviction, since overturned, still effectively meant the end for Arthur Andersen. Most of its country practices around the world have been sold to members of what is now the Big Four, notably Ernst & Young globally, Deloitte &Touche in the UK, Canada, Spain and Brazil, and PricewaterhouseCoopers(now known as PwC) in China and Hong Kong.

All four of these include management consulting as part of their services, to supplement the public accountancy services they offer.  These roles are often filled by management consultancy recruitment firms.  Management consultancy is a broad spectrum, and includes change management as well; recruitment agencies often have specific aspects of their business that handle this side, such as Investigo change solutions, which cater for staff that specialize in working with companies big and small during periods of transition.

The Big 4 are sometimes referred to as the “Final Four” due to the widely held perception that competition regulators are unlikely to allow further concentration of the accounting industry and that other firms will never be able to compete with the Big 4 for top-end work, as there is a market perception that they are not credible as auditors or advisors to the largest corporations.

2002 saw the passage of the Sarbanes–Oxley Act into law, providing strict compliance rules to both businesses and their auditors.

In 2010 Deloitte with its 1.8% growth was able to beat PricewaterhouseCoopers with its 1.5% growth to gain first place and become the largest accounting firm in the industry. In 2011, PwC re-gained the first place with 10% revenue growth.

Degrees needed for business development

There is no specific route to embark on a career in business development. There are degree programmes that are focused on entrepreneurship which may help provide the graduate with skills on how to advise businesses on their potential development. This degree will be available at various levels and will prepare students to be able to start their own businesses or apply for business development jobs in London.

Some universities across the world may provide students with degrees that are more specific towards business development. The students will have the chance to develop their competencies and knowledge on how to identify and understand the current issues and vital business drivers. Once these have been discovered then they can create and develop the appropriate strategies based on these factors and create sources of value and competitive advantage from it.

 

The challenge of working in business development is understanding how to approach the different international markets and the negotiation process that is involved in a multicultural environment. Being able to improve the competitiveness of the organisation is an important skill to have and it is not something that can be done by one person. It may involve a competent business development manager who can run the projects and make sure everyone is doing their specific tasks to contribute to the desired effect. It may require combined efforts from various employees including those individuals in graphic designer jobs in London.

Many candidates who become business development managers may have past degrees in Management which will have provided them with the high-level knowledge and range of skills that are needed in the industry. This degree might be one that is taken once in a career for someone who wants to further their skills making them ideal candidates for managerial roles in business development. Gabriele Skelton is a recruitment agency who will be able to offer advice along with the jobs that are on offer to their candidates.

The Fashion Industry

The industry tends to be able to be split into five areas in order of price:

  • Haute Couture which is the most exclusive and expensive of all segments. Only a handful of companies make up this part of the industry and they tend to produce custom-made clothing which is aimed at the world’s wealthiest individuals.
  • Jobs in luxury fashion will be associated to products which are a step down in terms of price and quality from Haute Couture but they are still aimed at a wealthy client base.
  • ‘Aspirational’ customers are targeted by the affordable luxury area which is for those who aren’t rick enough to afford luxury brands but they will accept lower priced alternatives.
  • Mainstream brands are focussed on mass appeal and they do not possess an air of exclusivity as they have chosen popularity.
  • Low income consumers are catered for by discount brands.

The fashion industry at the highest level tends to be unaffected by economic downturns, with Haute Couture companies seeing an increase in customers while at the same time the rest of the world was struggling to entice consumers. The consumers who are being the mainstream, discount and affordable luxury brands tend to have less financial security and therefore when times get rough they are not spending as much on accessories and clothing.

The industry will constantly see various trends including increasing focus on men’s clothing and accessories. Over the past few years men have begun to pay more attention to their appearance and it is a good customer base to focus on. The jobs in the fashion industry will change depending on demand and it can be a scary industry to work on during the recession if things get hard. Fashion design recruitment agencies will find that the jobs on offer will change depending on consumers demand and they will need to keep up with this.

5 reasons why people work temporary jobs

For many people taking a temporary contract seems like a bad idea. It offers none of the job security of a permanent contract, less opportunity to get to know colleagues and the company. However, there are some great reasons why people apply for temporary roles over permanent, according to Deverell Smith recruitment agency.

Taking on a short contract which could be a number of weeks or months long gives the employee flexibility. This is the flexibility to not work between contracts, which can suit if they have family commitments, don’t want to work full time, or have other work lined up.

Sometimes the economic situation means it is very difficult to find permanent work. Temporary roles can be a great filler while searching for a permanent role. Companies might be more willing to offer temporary roles if they are unsure whether they can support a permanent employee a few weeks or months down the line.

In some sectors you can demand higher daily rates with temporary contracts. This is because a company may need your expert skill set for a short time only and so they’re willing to pay a lot for this over the short term.

Related to this, sometimes temporary contracts are just the nature of the industry. In the arts for instance many organisations don’t know their funding situation that far in advance and so offer temporary contracts. As mentioned above, needing someone for a short time only is the way for many IT professionals too.

Temporary jobs in estate agents and other industries can be a great way to get exposure to what the company is like, gain contacts or just get to know the industry better. This can be ideal for graduates, career starters or those looking to make a career change.

Degrees needed to get into the Construction Industry

Jobs within the construction industry vary considerably but they tend to be split two ways, either managerial or labour based. For the labourer jobs then these will require a variety of basic practical skills and a degree is not necessary. These tend to be about learning on the job and ‘practice makes perfect’, but there are formal apprenticeships which will provide the candidate with the most preparation.

Construction labourers tend to find work through temporary recruitment agencies that will send them off to construction sites that are looking for short term workers. As with most careers it is about starting at the bottom and getting the entry-level workers to help the more experienced workers. As they put in more time and effort they will gain further opportunities to learn more complex tasks which can broaden their knowledge. Some employers will be looking for workers who have furthered their trade-related training by going to a specific trade or vocational school/college. There are some jobs which will receive more formal training, which tends to be the large non-residential construction contractors. These employers may provide 2 to 4 years of on the job and classroom training. Those who will be using dangerous equipment or handling toxic chemicals tend to provide specific safety training.

Another field within the construction industry are for those looking at construction sales vacancies. These positions will require a good technical knowledge of the industry, which will tend to have developed from first-hand experience. At the same time they need to showcase their sales skills and how they work with people, these are not necessarily traits that can be learnt at university but any degree should provide the graduate with the opportunity to strengthen these inter personal skills. To find the various sales construction positions that are offered considervisiting www.cdsales.com.

ERI hit the news after employee screening blunder

The Edinburgh Royal Infirmary has hit the headlines recently when it was found out they have a number of staff not yet passed through the disclosure Scotland form process. A follow-up investigation has found that they now have 89% of staff checked but not yet all.

ERI use a private operator Consort to provide services and it is them who have made the mistake. The NHS pays in the region of £56 million for their services per year. Earlier this year 521 staff had not been checked. In a more recent investigation 57 were still outstanding but Consort put many of these down to staff turnover, long term sick leave or not working for reasons like maternity leave.

Consort also says that many of the unchecked staff was not medical staff. They have now implemented a system that automatically checks each new employee, with a company like capita CRB doing all the checks.

So why is this abig deal? Disclosure Scotland is like CRB checks in England. The purpose of them is to protect the vulnerable like children and sick adults from people who are in positions of responsibility. This clearly strongly applies to hospital staff who will often be left alone or have access to patients on a regular basis.

The checks are meant to be completed before an employee starts work. Clearly all these employees had completely slipped through the net and unless the mistake was unearthed there is every reason to believe they would still be unchecked. It turned out that no employees were asked to leave but still the risk was present.

There are many companies offering the disclosure checking service, and it is common place for prospective employees to go through this. The spotlight is now on Consort to ensure they don’t let this slip in the future.

Cyber-attacks becoming more common

There have been many recent cyber-attacks on public and private sector firms, which have bought fear to many UK companies that this may happen to them too. It is believed that the individuals who are attach company IT systems are professional fraudsters and criminal groups. Companies do need to be wary of other activists or hobbyist hackers who may also launch an attack.

Individuals in the technology sector were most worried about the theft of competitive bid information and intellectual property. On the other hand, organisations in the financial market are more worried about reputational damage, interruptions of service for customers and loss of customer data. This is why most financial institutions will advertise financial crime jobs for employees who will be solely responsible for investigating any fraud or criminal incidents.

With so much time being spent on the internet, then individuals are more at risk of a cyber-attack. Social networking platforms such as Facebook or twitter provide an insight into what type of person the individual who uses them is. A criminal can determine many things from these platforms, such as whether you are male or female, where you live, who you live with. Posting a Facebook status that clearly states you will be out of the house for the evening is setting that individual up to be targeted.

Identity theft is a huge part of cybercrime and criminals can get ‘secure’ online accounts and withdraw money from the bank or perform various other illegal actions. This not only costs the individual a lot of money and time but it will also affect the bank’s reputation which can be detrimental for the organisation. There is a large number of methods on how to carry out a cyber-attack and these will constantly be evolving and strengthening. For those in charge of the IT security for a company or website it can be a tough, yet interesting industry to work in. They will need to keep up to date with the various ways that information and a site could be penetrated. To find jobs within financial crime, it security go to www.Barclaysimpson.com.
