I would encourage anyone who was considering a role in HR to get a HR qualification and to become a member of the CIPD.  


Whilst these are not essential requirements for all starter roles in HR, they will be extremely beneficial when trying to progress from there.

Ublox Expansion Creating Jobs for Cork

Internet of Things company U-blox is going through a period of expansion, moving to a larger facility in Cork and looking to grow its staff.

According to Jim Connelly, design set-up manager at U-blox in Cork, the company are seeking design engineers who are “bright, friendly, outgoing people, who work well in teams and want to work at the cutting edge of technology”.

These candidates – who, ideally, would have a minimum of two to three years’ post-graduate experience – would be joining a team with diverse backgrounds, working on cellular and Wi-Fi transceiver design.

There are perks to working at U-blox, from a flexible working style to a family-friendly ethos, which offers paid paternal leave, and healthcare for employees and their families. The company would be an ideal fit for someone looking for an exciting experience with a start-up vibe, says Connelly.
