There is, perhaps, no other sector that speaks to and reflects globalisation that of Real Estate and the Built Environment. Today, with low inflation and the search for yield, the rise of real asset focused private equity, the globalisation of our economies, advances in technology and more, this sector is it’s own distinct asset class. From these big macro themes we move to the granular of how we as human beings live and work together in an highly technological and increasingly urban world.
Whether we are talking about emerging markets across the world, regenerating previously built up areas, the optimal way to manage urbanisation or the next tallest skyscraper, this industry is undeniably active, driving investment and expanding job markets. The people that deal with real assets along the building life cycle interact with each other and link together in a variety of new, interesting ways.
What’s more, those individuals active within the sector – from financiers to engineers and quantity surveyors – must themselves invest in their skillset becoming global. Transferable cross-country and cross-continent but importantly along the life-cycle of each building. None can afford to ignore areas such as financials, urban planning, design or technology and operate in isolation. The contemporary economy pushes us to take a more holistic approach.
We take global to mean ‘worldwide’ and ‘comprehensive’. To partner effectively in the sector a recruitment consultancy must be able to deliver cross-border, multi-regional and complex talent acquisition projects across the building life-cycle.
This interaction within the industry is a relationship we at Aylin White explore to its full. Rather than concentrating on one location and one discipline – we function along the entire building life-cycle.
Our perspective and our function, just like yours have become global.
Essentially, we are the one point of contact you need to find and keep the people who make our cities come to life, from London to Sydney and beyond.
