First up in our ‘Meet the Team’ series is our DevOps specialist Consultant, Thomas Strickland. Thomas’s focus is on supporting candidates in making the next move in their careers. He thrives in building relationships with candidates, and drilling down on their true passion and drivers, to secure the perfect role for them. He is a true asset to the Circuit team!
Here at Circuit, I look after all things Cloud/DevOps related. This includes AWS, Azure & GCP. I also cover the Identity and Security space.
The relationship you can build with candidates is something I treasure. Hearing people’s stories from all different backgrounds is so intriguing to me.
Learning something new every day is great! There is so much information to absorb in the tech industry and I enjoy the never-ending process of educating myself. And the best part? Placing people into the next challenge in their career!
I love the team here at Circuit. I enjoy the social aspects of team bonding and end of quarter celebrations. We have such a tight knit office, and someone will always manage to put a smile on my face.
You never forget your first! Making my first placement will always stand out. From that point on its business as usual. But my first placement gave me the confidence to push on and achieve more.
My advice would be consistency is key. Blocking out a couple of hours every day to apply for roles, make connections, call, message, reply. Making this a consistent habit will increase your chances of landing your dream role. Treat it as a part time or even a full-time job. You must put yourself out there, don’t be shy.
Anyone that knows me will know how much I love playing Football (Soccer) and watching sport. West Ham is the team I was born into and never really had a choice. Other than hours upon hours of consuming sports content, I love a Sunday roast with my beautiful family followed by our weekly quiz.
Transparency for sure. Being transparent with your candidates is incredibly important. I believe it is one of the strongest assets about the circuit team. We will keep you in the loop every step of the way. The amount of depth that Circuit consultants go into to provide as much information as possible to our candidates is remarkable.
