Job Details

You want to work closely with your colleagues and customers, have a say in how things are run, deliver high quality services and develop your management skills as you grow into the role.

You want to live near the beautiful lake district in the market town of Penrith. You don’t want to work Sundays, late evenings and Bank holidays. A long weekend every 4 weeks appeals to you! A pharmacy steeped in history dating back to 1899 yet offering modern healthcare in a friendly environment is a setting in which you would enjoy working.

You have at least a couple of years post registration experience in community pharmacy and enjoy the bustle of the retail environment. You don’t mind hard work and enjoy training staff, delivering services and dispensing. You are practical, fairly self-reliant and are happy to sort out problems. You like to plan and implement those plans but you also listen to your patients and colleagues adapting your ideas when you recognise the benefits of their opinions.

The prospect of the following does not daunt you:

dispensing 6000+ items a month, Methadone, Needle exchange,EHC, Smoking Cessation, Flu jabs, MDS(reducing), CPCS services, plus busy over the counter sales and giving advice

 You would also enjoy the opportunity to develop services or product ranges you think will benefit the business and the customers.

There are opportunities to progress for the right candidate.

We would welcome the chance to talk to you and see if this a position you would enjoy. If you feel you can make a positive contribution to the success of our pharmacy then get in touch. We’d love to hear from you.

 Email a CV to Phil Caton Managing Director, Joseph Cowper Ltd, 49 – 50 King Street, Penrith, CA117AY.

Closing date for applications 21st June 2021

It is a friendly town and continues to develop giving us good cause to envisage a bright future for the company.
