CH2M HILL supports employment and skills training at Great Yarmouth Jobs Fair

CH2M HILL is proud to be sponsoring the Great Yarmouth Jobs Fair which is being hosted this week, on Friday 7 March 2014, by local Member of Parliament, Brandon Lewis. The fair, held from 10.00am – 4.00pm at the Great Yarmouth Racecourse, will provide residents with the opportunity to meet potential employers in the area and take part in a variety of workshops from how to write CVs to how to set up a business.

Mr Lewis is working with sponsors CH2M HILL, 3Sun and the Great Yarmouth Mercury, along with businesses from the area, to help young people and those who are long-term unemployed develop the skills required for entering the world of work.

CH2M HILL, the employee owned infrastructure and programme management company, has one of the leading corporate responsibility programmes in the UK; focusing on building skills, supporting social mobility and developing young people’s success in STEM subjects. The company plays an active role in the charity Business in the Community and the Social Mobility Foundation, providing coaching support for young people on one of its major programmes, the Speakers Parliamentary Placement Scheme.

In 2011 CH2M HILL started working with MPs to host skills days in order to assist young people get the advice they need to find work and have continued this programme, engaging with MPs up and down the country to help their constituents find pathways into employment.

Speaking about the event, Brandon Lewis MP said: “The Great Yarmouth Jobs Fair is an excellent opportunity for residents to meet local businesses, learn more about the job opportunities available in the area and improve their chances of finding long-term employment.

“Our sponsors CH2M HILL, 3Sun and the Great Yarmouth Mercury have helped to ensure that this will be a high quality event, lending their time and expertise to really make the Jobs Fair a success. We have a wide range of workshops on offer, from making good first impressions in an interview to starting your own business. I hope that Great Yarmouth residents will take the time to come down, whether they are looking for a new job, thinking about changing career, or are just interested in picking up some new skills and information."

Director of European Corporate Affairs at CH2M HILL, Jonathan Refoy, said: “CH2M HILL is pleased to be a key sponsor of this important event. We are currently in the middle of Apprenticeship Week and it is an important time to highlight the opportunities out there for young people and those looking for a new career.

“There are some exciting opportunities out there but all too often the problem for companies like us is finding the right people to fill these jobs. CH2M HILL works on some of the UK’s largest infrastructure programmes and we are crying out for the next generation of engineers and skilled professionals to work on them. Areas like Great Yarmouth also have some great opportunities for young people, in sector such as energy, and we are pleased to be helping make this Jobs Fair a success.”

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
