Here at Insight Recruitment, we’re delighted to further expand our engineering team and support their continuous success. James Dando joins the Insight family in the position of Data Centre Recruitment Consultant. 


About James:

I’m James and I’m a Recruitment Consultant specialising in Data Centres/Engineering at Insight Recruitment. I will be working with Mechanical Engineers and Supervisors on a global scale.

Why are you excited to work within this market?

Data Centres are at the forefront of an ever increasingly data/tech driven world, so the opportunity and demand for filling roles is especially appealing about my market.

What’s your background?

For a short while, I worked in a local pub and Papa John’s, I then became a sales representative at EE, where I caught the sales bug. After University, I got back into sales at Plusnet undertaking inbound sales and retention. I have learnt many transferable skills from these roles that will be beneficial as a recruitment consultant such as the ability to hold a conversation, build rapport, manage time, ability to listen and emotional intelligence.

Why did you join Insight?

The values at Insight are certainly things I can get behind, particularly the driven side of things. To be able to start a career in a new area is also appealing to me. Furthermore, the culture at Insight seemed to be very enjoyable and friendly.

What does Insight’s purpose of Empowering Sustainable Growth mean to you?

The idea that you can establish connections with clients/candidates to create rewarding relationships for everyone and therefore make money!

Describe yourself in three words… 

  1. Small
  2. Energetic
