A rewarding career caring for other starts here, with us. Unfortunately we don't currently have any vacancies for roles within our pharmacy teams. Continue reading to find out what a role in pharmacy can offer, and keep monitoring our website and social media for job updates and more.
Working across our sites of local, independent pharmacies, you're putting yourself at the forefront of community healthcare in our region. This connection and bond with our communities is very important to us, and the mutual trust and respect demonstrated between patients and staff allows us to further our efforts to maintain and enhance wellbeing for our customers and beyond.
All of our staff are compassionate and caring, and often go above and beyond for our patients and the community. Our priorities of patient-centred care make roles with our pharmacies at times challenging, yet immensely rewarding, with opportunities to work alongside many other experienced healthcare professionals including Pharmacists, Nurses and General Practitioners.
Our teams are friendly and experienced, and all of our day-to-day operations are dictated by Operating Procedures that we clearly set out so our staff understand clearly their roles and duties, and how to safely and effectively fulfill them.
Many roles within our pharmacies require training to ensure competency and effectiveness in the role. We provide many training and career progression opportunities for our staff — whether this be dispensing or medicines counter courses to develop skills advising on minor ailments or within the dispensary, to further postgraduate education for our Pharmacists and pre-registration trainees.
Further training opportunities include Dementia Friends Training, Healthy Living campaigns training, and much more. Members of our pharmacy teams may also complete courses to become qualified Medicines Counter Assistants, Dispensing Assistants, or progress further with Pharmacy Technician training, Stop Smoking Service training, and Accuracy Checking Training. Pharmacists may also be able to benefit from further training schemes.
The knowledge and experience you can gain from working in an often fast-paced community pharmacy environment can be invaluable, and can open the door to a lifetime of helping to care for others within pharmacy, the wider NHS, or beyond.
There are a number of roles we currently hold within our pharmacy teams — this can include general pharmacy roles in addition to further management roles for qualified pharmacists. All of our staff in our pharmacies will receive basic confidentiality training alongside other mandatory training as governed by the GPhC and our Standard Operating Procedures at the time.
