Untapped Potential: The Data Centre Career Opportunity

WEBINAR:  'Untapped Potential - The Data Centre Career Opportunity'


On Thursday, 21 October,  Host in Ireland’s hosted a live event, “Untapped Potential - The Data Centre Career Opportunity” webinar. 


The two biggest trends upon us as a society are digitalisation and decarbonisation. The place where they intersect and come to life is none other than the data centre. Data is at the heart of everything we do and shows no signs of slowing down.


By 2025, the Uptime Institute is predicting a net global staff growth of 300,000 data centre jobs.  How do companies harness the untapped potential offered by a career  creating the digital world we live in? Ensuring candidates understand these exciting roles and opportunities is quickly becoming one of the greatest challenges facing the industry here in Ireland, and for Irish companies abroad.


Our panelists gave insight on the data centre career opportunity, from employers attracting and developing talent to employees and graduates looking for new career paths.
