Rewarding roles

In Wales we value pharmacists and the significant contribution you make to the health of people in your local area. There are excellent employment prospects after qualification, whatever sector or role you choose. 

You can see the latest pharmacy jobs available in Wales on the NHS Jobs website.

One career, many paths

There are pharmacist and pharmacy technician posts in a range of sectors and levels, available across Wales.

We are experiencing an increase in new pharmacy positions in primary care, with a wide variety of opportunities in secondary care and many stimulating community pharmacy roles.

Pharmacy professionals are highly valued, working as part of multi-professional teams, leading on medicines related issues for the population.


Technology Enabled

In Wales we have joined up technology across seven fully integrated health boards, meaning you have access to GP medical records where ever you are in practice, enabling you to work with accurate and up to date information to provide the best care possible.


Work in a country passionate about health

Aneurin Bevan, a Welsh hero, established the NHS in 1948 on the principles of equality of access and the service being based on need, not on the ability to pay.

While Wales is a part of the UK, health policy is devolved to the Welsh Government, meaning that we can make the right health policies in Wales, for Wales.

Wales is a small, forward thinking and friendly nation and by working here you can take on roles that promise access to key decision-makers, so that you can help Wales shape the future of the services you provide.


Support when you need it

As a pharmacist in Wales you can get career support every step of the way, because we value your Continuing Professional Development as much as you do.  There are increasing numbers of pharmacist independent prescribers trained each year, in both community and Health Boards settings.
