We’ve been taking a lead in the exciting changes happening across the pharmacy market. Our customers wanted the convenience of an in store pharmacy and we’ve made it happen, opening hundreds of pharmacies across our nationwide network of stores.
 

These modern, professional environments are equipped to a high standard and include a consultation area. They offer our customers the personal touch of a community pharmacy with the convenience of being in a Tesco store.
 

Right now we’re looking for the right people to help bring our culture of customer service to life in every Tesco pharmacy. There are two roles available: Pharmacy Manager and the supporting role of Duty Pharmacy Manager.
 

If you share our ambitions in the pharmacy business, and if you have what it takes, this could be a great career opportunity for you.

In both roles you’ll be someone who puts people at the heart of everything you do:
• Being warm and welcoming with colleagues and customers
• Building relationships and taking time to recognise others
• Always looking for better ways of working
• Giving your best, and then exceeding expectations
 

You’ll also have what it takes to lead a team:
• Talking to colleagues to share ideas and best practice
• Creating team spirit and building relationships beyond the store
• Acting on what’s right for colleagues and customers
• Thriving on change and taking people with you to deliver it
• Inspiring confidence, even if things aren’t working out


And you’ll excel as a manager too:
• Providing regular training and making sure colleagues know their products and understand legal requirements
• Building working relationships with Primary Care Organisations (PCOs) and surgeries
• Helping to schedule colleagues’ work time effectively
• making sure payment claims are accurate for anything covered by the NHS
 

You’ll be playing a big part in driving the success of our pharmacy business at every level as it continues to grow.
 

There’s a lot more to it than dispensing medicines. Every day you’ll have the opportunity to make things better for customers in all sorts of ways, such as support for giving up smoking, reviewing customers’ use of medicines, checking blood pressure or blood glucose monitoring.
 

And it’s very much about supporting our communities, by making the best healthcare choices available and convenient for local people.

As a Duty Pharmacy Manager, the people you’ll work with every day are:
• Your Pharmacy Manager
• Your Dispensing Assistant and Pharmacy Accuracy Checking Technician colleagues
• Your Pharmacy Counter Assistant colleagues
• Your customers

If you’re excited by the chance to put your expertise to work and make a difference, and if you have the qualities we’re looking for, then we’d love to hear from you.
 

To apply, we’d like you to complete a questionnaire. We’ll then review your application, and from there we can meet up for a face-to-face interview and assessment.
 

To apply for these roles you’ll need a pharmacy degree, MUR certification (for roles in England and Wales) and membership of the General Pharmaceutical Council.
 

For both roles you’ll also need to meet government requirements for working with vulnerable groups, including an Enhanced Criminal Records check by the Disclosure and Barring Service, or Disclosure Scotland for roles based in Scotland.
