You may not already know, but we are the largest British owned pharmacy chain in the UK.  With nearly 760 branches, we have plenty of opportunities!

We are not just about dispensing medicines. We believe in listening to our customers and giving them personal advice on lifestyle and health issues. Because of the extra care we take with our customers, we are leading the industry, achieving 91% customer satisfaction!

We are bringing in new ideas and services, updating our branches and investing heavily in training our people, from launching an apprenticeship programme like this to leadership programmes for managers and professional development for pharmacists.

So, what a great time to join our Apprenticeship Academy as a Pharmacy Assistant: the first point of contact for customers who are looking for good service and sound advice.

This will ensure that you are able to recommend the right products and ensure that our customers get the professional advice they need.
