  • Saving the NHS millions of pounds with a rapidly growing range of cost-effective healthcare products and devices

The Role

You’ll be working within the pharmacy team to provide excellent patient care and safety, to ensure that the patient is always at the core of your performance and service delivery.

Your main responsibilities will be ensuring the smooth running of the dispensary, dispensing medication effectively and safely, and managing stock levels and deliveries. You will also be another expert for our customers to talk to, providing healthcare advice and services over the phone, or via electronic communication.

You’ll also assist with general pharmacy duties including replenishing stock, safe & accurate order packing, and working closely with our courier partners to ensure patients receive their medication in a timely manner.

As every day is different, you could find yourself getting involved with everything from acting as the first point of contact for customers, managing high volume dispensing transactions, to dealing with operational queries from GP surgeries.

Spirit will be investing in a digital future to enable patients and staff within our pharmacy to benefit from the latest advances and make an impact upon the world.

While the job is initially 22.5 hours per week, we are open to flexible working patterns in the future as the team grows.

The Candidate

  • Do you enjoy interacting with patients and fellow colleagues in the healthcare industry, using a wide range of in-person and digital communication methods to deliver excellent service?
  • Are you passionate about helping people who live with long-term health conditions, and excited at the prospect of joining an innovative, growing business tailored to their needs?

If the answer to all three of those questions is yes, then please apply for the role and come join our family.
