Meet the Amber Resourcing Team

Team Member

Tom Ponting

Founder - MD

Javascript and Microsoft Specialist

Tom has been working in the technical IT recruitment market for over 14 years now. He founded Amber Resourcing in September 2019, named after one of his daughters but also with the meaning of "getting set for your next opportunity" or "proceed with caution" wider message. The other daughter is waiting patiently for his next business naming opportunity.

It's fair to say he’s had a bit of a love affair with the Javascript and Microsoft Development space, Tom has done it all from recruiting for whole teams for new start-ups to singular company placements. What really gets him buzzing is a challenging position/task, if you have anything that's giving you a headache get in touch #ChallengeTom.

Tom has previously independently built and led multimillion pound turnover, high preforming recruitment teams. He has also experienced his own recruitment challenges, so it’s safe to say he can see the situation from both sides as a manager and a consultant.

One of Tom’s best qualities is that he’s easy to get on with and very approachable. If you're a manager or a candidate wanting to talk about tech or market conditions he would love to hear from you.

George Bone

Co-Founder - Associate Director

Data & Analytics

George comes from a different background to most in recruitment having kick-started his own venture at 18 and left the business successfully at 21.

Since joining recruitment George has demonstrated his love for people, wanting to meet applicants and clients every step of the journey.

The parts of George you don’t get to see are the hours he puts in for someone.  If that be an applicant or manager, he’ll be first in the office and  last to go home, making sure he takes pride in the service he provides.

Encompass this with his knowledge of Data & Analytics through years of experience, he’s now become a respected Consultant within the field and a trusted partner to clients.

If you’ve not had the pleasure of speaking or meeting with George then get in touch about meeting for a coffee.  He’d be very interested in discussing tech, recruitment or business in general.

Look out for him at the next meet up, he’s always open to having chat!
