Join our friendly team and develop yourself and your career.

We have an exciting opportunity for a motivated pharmacy technician to develop our services to mental health teams in Chesterfield and North Derbyshire.

Previous success has generated new funding to provide pharmacy services to the Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment Teams and the Dementia Rapid Response Teams. In both cases the team focus is on helping patients through short periods of difficulty enabling them to stay in their homes rather than coming into hospital. Using medicines safely and appropriately is an important part of this care.

As the pharmacy technician you will take the lead in developing these teams’ medicines optimisation processes in line with our Medicines Optimisation Strategy and Pharmacy Strategy. You will also be able to work closely with pharmacy technicians supporting similar teams in South Derbyshire, learning and developing together as part of our well respected pharmacy department.

This opportunity is part of our expansion of pharmacy services in North Derbyshire and you will have regular contact with pharmacist and technician colleagues in Chesterfield as well as Derby.

The successful candidate will be self-motivated, organised and a great communicator. A comprehensive induction will be provided and your professional development actively supported.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications.
