Joe Carter – BMS Team

Our Recruitment Consultant Joe has been with the company for 5 years, starting his first job here at Mediplacements the day after finishing his exams. He showed a natural talent for recruitment from the outset with his outgoing personality and positive attitude towards work.

Joe has progressed as a consultant over the years, his competitive edge meant he has always pushed himself and his hard work has paid off as he now has one of the highest amounts of locums out working.

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

What do you enjoy most about working for Mediplacements? The people are great to work with, especially my team, we are a very close team and everyone helps each other out on the desk.

What is your career motivation? To progress within the company and be successful, whatever I do I give 100% and do things to the best of my ability. We have some healthy competition in the office as to who has made the most placements in the week which helps motivate me further.

What would you say is your strong point? I’m a very social person I love talking to people, I like to think I’m quite personable and easy to talk to so I feel like my candidates and clients relate to me well which is why I have built such strong relationships.

What is your most memorable moment within your role? When I placed my highest amount of locums in a week on record, it was a great achievement and what I am constantly working towards so for the hard work to pay off is a great feeling, now I just have to continue to progress and exceed my targets.

What has been your most challenging experience in your role? The day before my locum from Australia was meant to board her flight to England to start her position, the funding was pulled for the job so I had to call and explain to her which was so hard as she was so excited for the role. Luckily she still came over and I was able to find her a new position that she was just as happy with.

What do you like to do in your spare time? I love to travel, over the last few years I have visited lots of amazing countries, I love seeing different places and trying new things. I love playing football and driving fast cars, we have had a few work football and go-karting competitions which I am the current reigning champion of.

Candidate feedback…

“I have been a candidate with Mediplacements for over two years now and I am very pleased with the service provided. My recruitment consultant, Joe Carter has been excellent in understanding which vacancies would interest me, regarding distance and hourly rates. Any minor issues regarding timesheets have been easily rectified. Thank you and keep up the good work.”
