Training

If you’re committed to developing your career and are willing to work hard to develop yourself both personally and professionally, you’ll have every chance to progress within The Co-operative Pharmacy.


We know that people like to learn in different ways, so we offer a wide range of additional learning opportunities.

We know that it’s our people who make us the very special business we are. And we know they want every chance to grow and develop. To make sure they do, we’re committed to promotion from within and encouraging everyone to explore their potential, whether it’s across our branch network, in Central Support or within The Co-operative Group.

We’re investing more than ever in training and have established a tailored pathway for every single role, ensuring you’ll get the support you need to reach your potential. We know that people like to learn in different ways, so we offer a wide range of additional learning opportunities too, from relevant courses and on-line learning, to secondments where you can broaden your skills.

It all starts with a thorough induction, delivered either in our Central Support or by studying online. As a co-operative driven by ethical values, we’re not like other businesses. It’s important to understand the difference and what it means to work here, so the induction covers everything you need to know about our culture and diverse range of our businesses.

After that, there’s dedicated training for pharmacists, our branch staff, and for colleagues in our warehouse and at Central Support. We also have development opportunities for pharmacy students and graduates.
