PHARMACY students in Portsmouth are being urged to apply for two work experience programmes that could lead to a career in the business.
The Co-operative Pharmacy is targeting city students from the University of Portsmouth’s school of pharmacy to apply for the summer schemes next year.
Recruitment is under way for a six-week paid placement for 20 third year pharmacy students, which will focus on commercial and managerial skills and could lead to a full-time placement the following year.
And a further 80 students will be offered a four-week placement on a voluntary basis.
Hannah Moger, resourcing manager for The Co-operative Pharmacy, said: ‘As competition becomes tougher, we want to give pharmacy students in Portsmouth the best possible chance of getting work experience, in addition to the skills and the direction to prepare them for a career in pharmacy.’
