Summer placement programme

Pharmacist taking medication off shelf

Our summer placement programme is available to 1st, 2nd and 3rd year pharmacy students and provides you with valuable hands-on experience working in one of our specially selected community pharmacies across the UK.

You'll be working alongside experts who are dedicated to helping you succeed. With support from your Designated Supervisor, colleagues and managers, you'll have every opportunity to build up your experience. 

You are provided with a learning programme to support your time in our pharmacies, giving you the opportunity to develop your knowledge and skills. You will play a key role in supporting our patients and customers with their healthcare needs throughout your placement.

If you complete a 3rd year summer placement you will be considered for a Foundation Training opportunity starting in August 2023. This will be subject to an interview with your Regional/Area Operations Manager during your placement. Offers will be made throughout the summer before the ORIEL assessments take place.

Applications for our 2022 summer placements are now closed.
