A full back or wing, he made his debut for Newport Gwent Dragons in October 2011 versus Wasps in the Anglo-Welsh Cup aged 17 years and 28 days.[1] In doing so, Amos broke the record for the youngest player to play Welsh regional rugby held by Kristian Phillips of the Ospreys. Amos also scored a try on his debut. However, later in the same match Jack Dixon broke the record set by Amos, also as a second-half replacement for Newport Gwent Dragons.[2]

He is currently studying medicine at Cardiff University School of Medicine, following in the footsteps of both his doctor parents and other Welsh international rugby players such as J. P. R. Williams and Jamie Roberts.[3] Hallam attended Cross Ash Primary School and Monmouth School for Boys.

On the 21 March 2019 Cardiff Blues announced[4] that Hallam Amos will be joining the squad for the 2019-2020 season of the Pro14 season.
