Richard Gibson – Pharmacy Team

Our Recruitment Consultant Richard is one of our newer members of the company, although he has made a huge impact in contributing to the growth of the pharmacy desk since starting 6 months ago. Before joining Mediplacements, Richard was a trainee fireman but unfortunately due to an injury just before his graduation, he was unable to complete his training. However, their loss is our gain as he has proved himself to be a great asset to the team.

We thought we would ask Richard a few questions to help you get to know a little more about him…

What do you enjoy most about working for Mediplacements? The relationships I’ve built both in and out of the office, with colleagues and locums, getting to know the different personalities.

What is your career motivation? Being respected in a job is very important to me, I like to leave the office knowing I’ve done the best I can.

What would you say is your strong point? I have a very honest approach to my work which I think my candidates find very refreshing and relate to quite well.

What is your most memorable moment within your role? I found the ideal role for a Pharmacist that only wanted to work within paediatrics and those particular roles are very hard to come by but I managed to place them and they were very happy.

What has been your most challenging experience in your role? Looking after the high volume of candidates, balancing my workload evenly and dealing with the demands and requirements of each individual.

What do you like to do in your spare time? Spend time with my two sons and take them on fun days out, rescue cats from trees, the usual modern day superhero kind of stuff. I’m a recruitment consultant by day and a DJ by night, I do it mainly as a hobby but have a residency in a bar in London.

Candidate feedback…

“I have been working as locum for Mediplacements for few months and it’s a great experience! Joining up was quick, easy and effortless. My consultant Richard is amazing... he is very professional, friendly and always willing to help, going that extra mile to find you the right job. I would definitely recommend Mediplacements to all health professionals who want to work in the UK.”
