Having first launched his career in recruitment straight after university, Tom spent over a year assisting companies in finding Java Software Engineers in Hessen, Germany. Following that, he joined a company to contribute to building their US Software desk. Throughout his four years in recruitment, Tom has gained the understanding that process is everything.

Tom commented ‘without a solid plan in place, things quickly become chaotic. As cliché as it may sound, recruitment is a rollercoaster with ups and downs, but persistence pays off, and situations can turn around very quickly. Always seek advice, regardless of whether someone has 20+ years or 2+ months of experience in recruitment; there are always new things to learn and perspectives to consider’.

I chose Omega because it is a company with a great support system. During the interview with Kris Smith, the company's values and mission were outlined, and they resonated with what I was looking for.

Outside of work Tom has a passion for skiing &snowboarding, having lived for a year in Colorado he was able to go at least 3 times a week, and more recently has started rock climbing.
