Looking for a sunnier climate and greener pastures? This is a unique opportunity for a Pharmacist (experienced or recently qualified) to join a leading community pharmacy service provider on the beautiful Channel Island of Guernsey!

The second largest of the Channel Islands, Guernsey itself has a warm and sunny climate, rugged coastal scenery, a rich heritage and a thriving creative arts and music scene – whether you’re after history, literary pursuits, outdoor activities, coastal walks or leisure time on sandy beaches, there’s something for everyone. With close connections with the UK and the neighbouring islands of Jersey, Herm, Alderney and Sark, there are lots of adventures to have and places to explore; plus, with France just a short boat trip away, you will find it a convenient base for European travel too.

The organisation has been supporting local community for 25 years, as part of a small independent network servicing the Bailiwick.

As a Relief Pharmacist / Pharmacy Manager, you will be providing a supporting role across four branches in close proximity. With three pharmacies annexed next to medical practices, you will be able to work closely alongside doctors and other local healthcare professionals, and the fourth pharmacy (situated within a local superstore) supports nursing and residential care homes.

Each branch has a well-supported team of experienced Dispensers and Pharmacy Managers, and there will be minimal paperwork, no MUR services, and no methadone or syringe services expected. You will also benefit from basic rate income tax of 20%.

This is a full-time position, dependent upon the granting of a Guernsey right-to-work document which can be valid for a period of up to eight years.

Accommodation can also be provided (reduced salary will apply for this).
