Why Scottish print stalwart Thompson’s role is becoming increasingly important – as illustrated in a feature earlier this year about relocating for employment opportunities, a process that demands Thompson be as much life planner as recruitment consultant. His light touch in one such relocation won him much praise. Always game for a laugh, Thompson is a popular figure among print bosses for whom reliable staff have been recruited. One client said that he had complete faith in Thompson’s judgment as he had always delivered the best person for the job. If his usual strong showing in the public vote is anything to go by, this is an opinion held by many – or is at least a testament to the extensiveness of his contacts book.
