2017, That’s A Wrap!
And just like that, it’s nearly 2018!
2017 has flown in! And we’d like to take this chance to thank everyone who has played their part in helping us to achieve what we have in this whirlwind of a year!
To our Locate a Locum staff, who are the backbone of the organisation. I offer my deepest of thanks for your hours upon hours of hard work, that has helped me to achieve my dream of building the UK’s largest locum pharmacist booking platform! Thank you for the laughs, the beers, the Boojum and the advice on how we could continually improve our website and the services that we provide.
To my business partner Michael, and to our board of directors, thank you for your hard work and guidance, through the rough and the smooth!
Our success would not have been possible without the input of Lynsey Cunningham, Joh Ferris, those at Ulster Bank and the staff at the E-Spark facility in Belfast. Their mentoring has helped, not only myself, but also my staff, to develop both professionally and personally over the past 18 months. And to Julie Thompson from KPMG, who helped us to put together our first ever marketing strategy.
Every one of the 4500+ pharmacists who have registered on our platform, I thank you for your patience, your help in developing our website and for the hours & shifts that you have worked through our website. We’re working hard over the festive period to implement the changes that you have recommended, and we’re determined to do even better for you in 2018.
To the 8000 pharmacies that regularly use our website to advertise and fill locum shifts, thank you for your ongoing input, helping us to deliver a technology platform that has been positively received across the UK. We have a lot of new features en-route for 2018 and we can’t wait to show you what we have in store!
This time last year, we had a staff of three people, and we worked in a shared office space. This has been one hell of an experience.
I’m looking forward to 2018. But I’m more so looking forward to a break over the Christmas period with my new wife Natalie. Without whom, none of this would be possible!
Signing out for 2017,
(While you're here, book some locum shifts!)
