Tanique Thompson: Kickstarting in Production 

South London born Tanique Thompson, is celebrating one month at Robinson Manufacturing (RML) as Trainee Production Admin. Joining the business through the Kickstart Scheme, Tanique is 5 weeks into a 6-month placement and has already seen her hours increase. 

Prior to taking on the role at RML, Tanique achieved a BA in Animation at De Montfort University in Leicester. Part of the course involved creating a showreel and portfolio and provides a creative outlet that Tanique keeps up to date.  

While on the face of it, animation might not naturally seem to have any links or transferrable skills with carrying out admin duties for our production team, there have been some skills Tanique has been able to apply to her new role. Problem-solving, communication, and teamwork are all part of the lessons Tanique has learnt that she has brought with her into this step of her career.  

Assistant Head of Production, Michelle Brayfield, shares her thoughts on Tanique’s performance and the team expanding: 

“Straight away Tanique displayed a strong work ethic and team spirit that saw her settle into her role so well we have already increased her hours. It is always great to see creative and bright new talent enter the business, and I look forward to seeing what the future holds for Tanique here at RML.”
