We are seeking an enthusiastic Pharmacist manager for Back Pharmacy; an independent community pharmacy situated in the beautiful rural surroundings of Vatisker, 7 miles north of Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis, Western Isles.
This pharmacy is a key part of a small group of independent Scottish Community Pharmacies. You will manage an experienced team, and will benefit from on-going support from the group’s owners. There will be opportunities to further develop your career through local APC and CPS committee involvement.
Under new ownership since October 2018, you will help to continue the development of the pharmacy. You will be encouraged & supported to bring your creativity, ideas and approach to the role and you will find yourself becoming a highly valued member of the island’s healthcare team as well as the wider community.
The pharmacy operates 10am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday & Saturday 10am to 1pm. We hope to provide working hours to match your needs: full-time, part-time and job share will be considered for the right candidate.
The Highlands and Islands have risen in popularity following the pandemic; Open space, fresh air, stunning beaches and scenery. The Outer Hebrides make for great hiking, exploring and surfing and have a rich history with many neolithic and medieval sites to visit. Lewis is well-connected with the mainland with frequent flights and ferries.
We will support you in any and every way that we can and you can make use of the business’s nearby 3-bedroom house on a temporary basis to help get you settled-in to your new surroundings. These opportunities are rare.
