We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated Senior Technical Assistant, preferably with experience of working in a hospital Pharmacy, to join our ever evolving Pharmacy Training Team. This is a key time to be joining the team as we are broadening the scope of our training to include a more ward based and patient safety focus. The ideal candidate must have a keen interest in the training and development of others and possess excellent communication and interpersonal skills.

The position is based at York Hospital, however some cross site working at Scarborough Hospital will be required.

The successful candidate will be involved in the delivery of training to Pharmacy staff both in the Pharmacy and on the wards within the hospital. NVQ Level 2 in Pharmacy services is therefore an essential requirement for this role. Experience as a dispenser or medicines management assistant is desirable.

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.

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
