Student Pharmacy Technician

“I was looking to develop my career within pharmacy but was unsure of how I would be able to this with two small children, only being able to work part-time and with a secondary evening employment. I was able to secure a role as a trainee pre-registration pharmacy technician at RCHT . Although at first, I was unsure of how I would manage the workload, with the brilliant help and support from the Pharmacy Education and Training team, good organisation and dedication, I am now close to qualifying. I have learnt a wide range of topics and been provided with fantastic opportunities and experiences, whilst still being able to financially provide for my family.  I would 100% recommend this programme to anyone looking for a career in pharmacy!”
