A Special Thank You

Before we start to find out if we’re a good fit, we just wanted to say thank you. Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, pharmacists across the UK stood up to the plate and helped to protect the country and for that, we will always be grateful.

About the Role

We’re looking for a pharmacist to join our amazing team in Plymouth. The store is in a great location based on the high street, with free parking just around the corner and it’s very easy to get to via public transport. The branch is just 5 minutes from Plymouth city centre and also right by the beach! You’d be working with a really engaged and experienced team who know the customers on a first name basis, plus there is a new Retail Manager due to join the team who is also a dispenser, so great support is in place! This friendly pharmacy offers a wide range of services making it a great place for a newly qualified pharmacist to start their career or for an experienced pharmacist to really make their mark.
