Intelligent Recruitment for Intelligent Mobility
As a recruitment agency ensconced in the emerging, disruptive technologies, it turns out it’s not just us who thinks this particular location is the perfect place for innovation.
This smart city is proving to be a magnet for the companies who are already making serious waves with intelligent mobility and the IoT – and will be making a big impact not just here but throughout the world in years to come.
A Truly Smart City for Connected Technology
Milton Keynes continues to prove itself as a centre of innovation in the tech fields – especially in the area of autonomous, driverless transport.
A few weeks ago, MK Council began with the first trials of their self-driving pods. These self-driving cars will transport visitors, locals and shoppers to and from the station and shopping centre, operating a first/last mile service between the two. People can expect to see delivery robots and up to 40 pods over the coming months.
The pods are a result of work by Aurrigo, RDM and the Milton Keynes based Transport Systems Catapult (TSC)– the UK’s major force behind Connected and Autonomous Transport and Mobility-as-a-Service Platforms.
Driverless Pods are Here!
We’ve been working closely with TCS for the past couple of years, helping the not-for-profit organisation to attract the most highly skilled and innovative candidates to this relatively new field of technology.
As many who work in new, disruptive technologies know, there is a challenge, especially under the pressure of fast growth, to recruit non-standard, in-demand people in unproven fields and start-ups.
Milton Keynes has always embraced and supported that culture and, as a recruitment agency who started here over 10 years ago, it’s a culture we’ve embedded into our own company and client service, too.
