Drew Thomas – BMS Team
Our BMS Recruitment Consultant Drew joined Mediplacements nearly two years ago after having previously worked in recruitment for one year. Before this, Drew had worked in the events industry which he says is what built his confidence and improved his people skills which gave him the confidence to get into recruitment.
We thought we would ask Drew a few questions to help you get to know more about your dedicated recruitment consultant…
What do you enjoy most about working for Mediplacements? Mainly the people, the different outgoing characters make it a good environment to work in. It is a very social, vibrant and buzzy atmosphere which helps to motivate me. We also do a range of activities outside of work such as weekly football matches and other sports.
What is your career motivation? My main motivation is to be successful, but I also enjoy the aspect of helping my candidates find their perfect position which gives me a good sense of satisfaction when I can deliver this for them.
What would you say is your strong point? I think I’m a very personable guy, very easy going with a happy disposition. I am someone that is easy to talk to and candidates and clients can relate to and feel they can trust.
What is your most memorable moment within your role? My first deal, I did the whole process from scratch, sourced the candidate and the job and my candidate is still in the role now and have received excellent feedback from the client.
What has been your most challenging experience in your role? When I placed a locum into their ideal role, they had quit their previous position and the day before they were due to start the client pulled out due the lack of funding. I was devastated for my candidate but worked very hard to place them into a new position.
What do you like to do in your spare time? Mainly sports, I’m very into my football I play twice a week. I am also quite artistic and into photography, my main passions are nature, abstract and street photography.
