It may not be the most obvious career move; however, Amelia Thompson has swapped treading the boards in the West End and performing for the Royal Family at St James Theatre for iSG Technology Talent Partners in Leeds.
Calling upon her natural enthusiasm and passion for performance, Amelia takes the role of Delivery Consultant and will be responsible for delivering 180 recruitment resourcing: identifying and placing candidates in preferred roles and embedding them within those organisations.
She comments: “Joining iSG Technology Talent Partners marks a new chapter in my career. While it might not seem like an obvious move for most, there are a lot of transferable skills that I can take from the stage and bring to my resourcing role.
“Being personable and able to speak to people with confidence is the first step. I know that with the team around me, I will make connections and develop my approach so that I can support even more candidates as they look for their perfect tech position.”
Managing director of iSG Technology Talent Partners, Geoff Shepherd, comments: “When Amelia mentioned her passion for performance and the experiences that she has had in the West End, I was really impressed!
“We’ve always been a business that attracts and welcomes talent based on personality as opposed to previous experience. The reality is that if you have the right attitude and approach, you can have a very successful career in recruitment.
“We’ll just have to remember that Amelia has an advantage when we do our next iSG’s Got Talent competition!”
