An exciting opportunity has arisen within Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust for a Band 6 Pharmacist to join our team as part of a well-established rotational training programme at The Tunbridge Wells Hospital.

We are looking for a Band 6 Pharmacist to join our team in a post that will encompass rotations within areas such as Dispensary, Clinical Services covering various specialties, Technical Services and Medicines Information. Within each rotation you will be actively supported by senior Pharmacy staff, with responsibility for setting objectives and monitoring your progression.

You will be encouraged to develop within this role and we would support you in achieving all the required skills, knowledge and behaviours described in the Foundation Pharmacist Framework. We will also encourage you to become actively involved in training other staff, supporting the education and training initiatives across our department.

Tunbridge Wells is a vibrant town, with great shopping and nightlife, and is within easy reach of London, the channel ports and the beautiful countryside and beaches of Kent and Sussex.

We would welcome applications from existing hospital pharmacists looking to relocate, community pharmacists looking to make a career switch in to hospital pharmacy, and pre-registration pharmacists who will qualify in August 2019.

Note: Some rotations may require travel to Maidstone Hospital. A free staff shuttle bus is available for this purpose. 

Please note that appointment to this post will be subject to a satisfactory Disclosure & Barring Service Check at enhanced level. (Enhanced level now includes regulated checks against vulnerable adults and children)

As an inclusive employer, we are committed to having a diverse workforce and being a Stonewall Diversity Champion and Disability Confident Committed Employer we are working to create a workplace that enables all staff to reach their full potential.  We, therefore, encourage applications from BME people, LGBT+ people and people with disabilities.

Applicant requirements

You must have appropriate UK professional registration.

Applications from job seekers who require Tier 2 sponsorship to work in the UK are welcome and will be considered alongside all other applications. However, non-EEA candidates may not be appointed to a post if a suitably qualified, experienced and skilled EU/EEA candidate is available to take up the post as the employing body is unlikely, in these circumstances, to satisfy the resident labour market test. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires employers to complete this test to show that no suitably qualified EEA or EU worker can fill the post. For further information please visit the UKVI website. From 6 April 2017, Tier 2 skilled worker applicants, applying for entry clearance into the UK, must present a criminal record certificate from each country they have resided continuously or cumulatively for 12 months or more in the past 10 years. Adult dependants (over 18 years old) will also be subject to this requirement. Guidance can be found here Criminal Records Checks for Overseas Applicants.

This post is subject to the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act (Exceptions Order) 1975 and it will be necessary for a submission for Disclosure to be made to the Disclosure and Barring Service.
