Do you share our values? We’re looking for applications from people who:

- care about what they do
- respect and value others
- listen in order to improve
- always do what they can to be helpful

…to help make us a valued and trusted partner within our care system, that delivers safe effective care to our local population.


We are looking to recruit a motivated, and enthusiastic pharmacy technician, who can manage and develop the medicine management and education teams.

We are a proactive department, developing roles such as medicine management assistants, pharmacist transcribers and specialised technician roles in areas such as antimicrobials and homecare.

Within this role you will be responsible for improving the education and training surrounding medicines to pharmacy and clinical staff, such as doctors and nurses. The role will also include the opportunity to improve medicines optimisation throughout the Trust, to ensure that we continue to meet the needs of our patient’s and users.

The position requires working with staff throughout the hospital, so the applicant must have good communication and interpersonal skills, be organised and able to manage their own time effectively. You must be passionate about providing high quality patient focused care.

You must have established team leading experience and medicines management experience and must be a QCF assessor (or working towards this).

Consideration will be given for people who are interested in part time working hours. Please contact Sarah for discussion and further information.

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

The postholder will have access to vulnerable people in the course of their normal duties and as such this post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and as such it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service to check for any previous criminal convictions.
