You will be responsible for the training, appraising and supervising of staff working in the centre as well as supporting the development of our junior rotational staff, pharmacy undergraduates and postgraduates in all aspects of Medicines Information.

You will be an experienced pharmacist with excellent leadership, communication and organisational skills and the desire to provide a high quality, safe, effective and efficient service.
