Michael Thomson

Senior Recruitment Consultant

Location: Glasgow

An Analytical Chemistry Honours graduate, from Strathclyde University, I’ve worked within recruitment for 5 years, both in England and Scotland.  Joining The Orion Group in October 2019 I previously headed up HR and L&D recruitment across Scotland and have now taken on the same responsibility but with a wider remit of the UK. Prior to that I also worked across Category, Commercial and Marketing recruitment within the FMCG and Consumer Durable sector, having worked within the industry straight out of University. I’m passionate about what I do and recently completed my CIPD Level 5 Diploma, through Avado, in L&D to increase my knowledge of a growing sector which I believe will continue to build as organisations realise the importance of developing and investing in their workforce. I look to work on a consultative basis building relationships with my candidates and clients over the long term.

Current speciality: HR and L&D positions across the UK focusing on Junior, Middle Management and Senior HR and L&D roles. Including but not exclusively working on HR Director, Head of HR/ L&D, HR Business Partner, L&D Business Partner, Senior HR Manager HR Manager, L&D  Manager, HR Advisor and HR Officer positions.

The best thing about working in Orion Group: The vision of the business and the opportunity to help but to also be taken out my comfort zone was and still is the biggest appeal. This ambition is mirrored by consultant and the senior leadership team alike which allows for an exciting environment.

In my spare time… I am a keen sportsman with a particular passion for Football and staying fit. I have a season ticket to watch (endure) Heart of Midlothian FC and travel over bi-weekly with my dad to Edinburgh. Having lived down south and still owning a  property in Leeds I often take the opportunity to socialise with friends who I’ve built up throughout the years.
