Choosing the right placement is so important for your future career. It provides you with the opportunity to spend a significant amount of time in a community pharmacy environment. There’s also the added incentive that at the end of the Summer Placement, you could be offered additional paid work in a store over the summer months.
Join us and gain a real insight into how a successful store operates – as well as first-hand experience of what a community pharmacy is all about. You’ll be part of the team and have the opportunity to talk with our customers and offer them advice. Putting your university knowledge into a practical context, you’ll learn all about our business and the commercial and leadership requirements needed to run it. You’ll also gain an excellent grounding for your pre-registration year. You’ll be supported by an experienced Pharmacist throughout the duration of your placement and provided with training materials to enable you to meet your learning objectives and support your development.
Complete a voluntary placement over two weeks, placements run throughout the summer months and are open to MPharm students in Years 1, 2 and 3.
What we look for
You should have excellent customer service and communication skills, and, ideally some customers service work experience.
As well as a great track record of delivering quality customer service as part of a team, we look for people with some community pharmacy experience under their belts.
