UK hackers hack together job site for UK hackers
Credit: Reuters/Stephen Lam Quotes LONDON (Reuters) – U.S. computer maker Hewlett-Packard Co is set to cut 1,124 jobs in Britain as part of plans to lay off 27,000 employees globally by the end of 2014, the company said on Wednesday. HP’s statement came after the Unite union said it had attended a meeting where managers were outlining their plans to cut jobs at the group’s sites in Bracknell, Sheffield and Warrington by next year. The union said HP, which employs between 15,000-20,000 people in Britain, blamed falling demand and reorganisation for the job losses. A HP spokeswoman confirmed the number of job cuts but declined to comment on which locations they would hit. She said the company wants to complete the process by the end of January next year.

“I look forward to competing with him in the UK market as we strive to better the industry for our customers,” RBS Chief Executive Ross McEwan said on Wednesday. RBS was the top faller in a flat FTSE 100 .FTSE , down 1.9 percent by 0845 GMT (3.45 a.m ET). Analyst Chirantan Barua at brokerage Bernstein, who has an “outperform” rating on the stock, said the loss of Bostock was not good news for RBS but didn’t change his view on the bank’s recovery prospects. “In a way, we see it as an endorsement that the current CEO is here to stay – a factor that would definitely have weighed on Nathan’s decision to leave,” Barua said. Santander confirmed late on Tuesday that Bostock would be named chief risk officer and deputy CEO of its UK arm, which is due to be spun off and separately listed. Given McEwan’s recent appointment as RBS chief executive, Bostock may have opted to join Santander UK as the CEO role there could become available before the top job at RBS. TOP JOB Santander UK Chief Executive Ana Botin has been tipped as a possible successor to her father Emilio Botin as chairman of the Madrid-based group, maybe once the UK arm is floated.

With a coders in hot demand right now, its set to become a popular destination both for job seekers and those looking for new staff. Theres even an opportunity for a CTO/Co-founder. Considering agencies Though the Hacker Jobs UK founders considered an outright ban on recruitment agencies, they have been more flexible on the issue but have raised the threshold on who they are willing to accept. According to Buckley, There are a tiny percentage of Tech Recruiters who actually know what Developers want and it would be counter-productive to prevent these guys from posting real jobs. The site is powered by Obair , a company owned by Gibraith and Buckley which has yet to be launched but with the strap-line The Work Company, it is possible to take a qualified guess at the intentions. Users are encouraged to provide feedback and by its very nature, it is not a surprise that the founders hope to develop their service based on advice, The first iteration of Hacker Jobs UK feels relatively similar to every other job site out there and weve released a basic level intentionally, writes Buckley.
