Based at York Hospital, the post holder will provide medicines to 2,000 patients across North Yorkshire. It is therefore essential that they are a highly motivated individual with excellent communication and organisational skills and able to make a vital contribution to patient care. Other key skills we are looking for include enthusiasm, reliability and a good eye for detail. The post holder will also be given the opportunity to lead on projects relating to the service.

This role offers the unique opportunity of working in both the Cancer Care team and the Aseptic team and they will provide a vital link between these two services. The post holder will be required to liaise with multi-disciplinary teams on a daily basis. These include, but aren't limited to, patients, clinical teams and outsource companies.

It is expected that the post holder will also support the dispensary, undertaking weekend working on a 1 in 8 basis.

You will need to be registered with the General Pharmaceutical Council, and have post-qualification experience, preferably within a hospital pharmacy.

Pre and In Process checking (PIPC) and Accredited checking (ACT) qualification would be an advantage, but can be worked towards once in post.

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.
