Since 8 March, the job portal bauingenieur24 has complemented the services of the leading specialist publisher for civil engineers, Ernst & Sohn. The recruitment of specialists and managers has become a decisive factor in positioning oneself successfully and future-oriented in the market. Filling vacancies in the construction industry is one of the most important challenges for managing directors and human resources departments of engineering firms, construction companies, the public sector and universities. bauingenieur24 complements Ernst & Sohn’s publishing programme and thus strengthens its online division.
bauingenieur24 launched its information service in 2001 and contributes its know-how in terms of careers and the professional world for civil engineers to the partnership. “The professional world not only includes our job market, but also a comprehensive editorial section with specialist articles, further training dates and a specialist forum for exchanging experiences. Particularly with the editorial topics, I see the opportunity to bring about extensive synergies for the readers,” explains Christian Wieg (previous business owner of the bauingenieur24 information service): “We will now jointly accompany civil engineers from their studies into construction practice as well as throughout their entire professional lives.”
bauingenieur24 is not only an important contact point for job seekers and employers, but also enables the exchange with colleagues and further education through specialist content from professional and construction practice. Civil engineers of all ages can now be informed even better and addressed together through a strong and broader media mix.
The publishing house Ernst & Sohn, a subsidiary of the renowned publishing group John Wiley & Sons based in Hoboken/New Jersey, was founded in Berlin in 1851 and is one of the leading specialist publishers for civil engineers in German-speaking countries. The publishing programme now includes 11 trade journals, 4 of which are in English, as well as thematic issues and numerous German and English-language technical books.
Franka Stürmer (Managing Director Ernst & Sohn) commented: “I am very happy that we have found each other and can present our existing and future customers with a wide range of products covering their entire professional life.”
Christian Wieg added: “bauingenieur24 will benefit from the many years of industry experience and contacts of Ernst & Sohn GmbH. The career portal bauingenieur24 with its specialised job market fits Ernst & Sohn, we address the same target group. Therefore, I see considerable synergies through the interaction of print and online services.”
