Another recruitment consultant who can't hold his drink!
Posted on 4th June 2019
What is it about IT recruitment consultants? As the Be-IT team expands and we welcome new starts on board, almost everyone of them cites the spilling of drink as their "biggest disaster at work." Apart from the shocking waste of alcohol involved, there is the dry-cleaning bill for their employers, who seem to spend most of their time dabbing down and drying their customers. Having said, that, it's also the case that they often turn out to be rather good recruiters, so perhaps the connection is not so bad after all. Meet Thomas, spiller of drink and wearer of a Red Power Ranger outfit (in his youth)...
Name: Thomas Cameron
Job title: Consultant
What other jobs have you done apart from working in recruitment?
I’ve worked in retail, food and financial industries while I was at Uni (I was there for 8 years).
What it your biggest disaster at work (anywhere)?
While working at Pizza Hut I managed to spill two trays of drinks over two separate tables during the same shift.
What/who makes you laugh out loud?
Billy Connolly, his jokes are timeless.
When you were young, what was your favourite toy?
Red Power Ranger outfit and ray gun.
Band – Stone Roses. Singer – Frank Sinatra. Quite a varied taste… (for a moment there, I thought you meant "The Band" - which would have been very impressive - Ed).
As a new start, what was your initial impression of Be-IT after your first day in the office?
A friendly/welcoming environment. Hardworking team.
Favourite (non work) website and why?
Twitter – basically a platform for idiots which can be entertaining at times.
Favourite food and drink?
South Indian garlic chilli chicken. An ice-cold Tennents.
Favourite techie gadget?
My electronic tin opener. A game changer in the Cameron kitchen.
And finally, what do you (honestly) want to be doing in ten years’ time? I want to have mastered my profession and ensure I’ve taken every opportunity I could to progress (this is seriously good crawling - Ed).
