Neil Williams is a former Royal Marine Commando officer who recently left the Corps and has set up a new business – Crucial Group. Here, he explains more about the business, what it will achieve and how it will be able to offer significant help to those from the Royal Navy and Royal Marines communities who want to work in Future Technology markets.
‘Crucial Recruitment is the fastest growing global recruitment business specialising in future advanced technologies. The business will form part of a group of businesses set up by Former Captain Neil Williams Royal Marines. It is focussed on the future technologies markets and has opportunities within Cyber Security, Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. It is also working within other emerging markets.
The White Ensign Association have supported Crucial from its inception and will continue to do so as the group develops. Supporting service leavers from the RN and RM is the heart of The White Ensign, not only assisting the ex-service personnel within Crucial, but to signpost those who are looking for avenues into working within Future Technology markets as they transition into civilian life.
Crucial is committed to assisting ex-service personnel and is a supporter of the Armed Forces. It has been awarded the Armed Forces Covenant Bronze award and is working towards gaining the Silver Award in the near future. The business will form part of a group offering professional services to businesses through our Cyber Security Consultancy and a specialist training academy providing accredited courses to former service personnel.
Cyber Security is a sector that continues to grow significantly and with the shortfall in professionals it should be an area of consideration for all service leavers who are exceptionally marketable in this sector. There is a huge market in cyber security alone with a shortfall of 1.5 million professionals worldwide predicted by 2020 with recent UK surveys saying that 46% of UK companies saying the shortfall is having a significant impact on their customers. The cyber security market is flourishing with opportunities at all levels that would suit service leavers.
With all pointers indicating that 2018 will see substantial growth in Future Technology markets and with the excitement that brings, there is no time like the present to register your interest in the areas that Crucial currently works within. We can offer free, independent advice about our markets and how best to enter them.
