Matt has worked for Boots for 10 years, initially starting his career in the photo labs before becoming a Healthcare Advisor and then a Pharmacy Advisor.
He says: “There is so much to love about my role as a Pharmacy Advisor and I always feel like I am giving something back to the community by helping people on a day to day basis.
“You get to interact with such a wide variety of patients. Some people are really sick, some are upset, and some just want you to listen to them. This job is not about selling – it’s about listening, caring and advising.
“Working on both the counter and in the dispensary gives my day a real balance. I love that my medicine-based knowledge constantly develops in the dispensary, and the complex prescriptions that I sometimes put together. This, in addition to the customer interaction on the counter, makes my role incredibly interesting.
“Boots UK has really supported my development throughout my career and I’ve gained some great qualifications. The possibilities to develop are endless – I could go on to train to be a Pharmacy Technician or Accuracy Checking Technician in the future.”
