I help to make a difference
Are you collaborative, caring and compassionate?
Prisons are one of the most challenging, yet rewarding places for healthcare professionals to work - if you’re looking for a role where you can develop your existing skills and learn something new every day, then this is the place to be.
As a healthcare provider, we recognise the fact that prisoners are a socially excluded group with complex healthcare needs that can often be associated with poor outcomes. We believe in putting the patient first, regardless of the environment or their history.
Care UK is the Health in Justice market leader - 2 years ago we were managing 12 prison healthcare services and in 2019 we're providing healthcare services in over 40 prisons across the country.
We can offer training and development in our friendly and supportive teams as well as full-time, part-time and bank opportunities and a range of other employee benefits.
In return for your hard work you will...
Receive an annual salary of up to £28,000 depending on experience. You'll also get a number of benefits including a company contributory pension scheme, 25 days annual leave plus 8 public bank holidays plus CPD and re-validation support.
Other benefits include cycle to work scheme, plus training and clinical development opportunities.
Onsite benefits at HMP Stafford include access to an onsite gym, free parking and subsidised café/restaurant.
What do we need from you so you can do the job?
As a Senior Pharmacy Technician, you will assist with the provision and delivery of an integrated, safe, legal, high quality prison pharmaceutical service within the Offender Health cluster of prisons based on National (Divisional) policies supported with local standard operating procedures, taking into consideration, at all times, the need to maintain a high level of security.
You will provide positive and aspirational leadership to the team of technicians and support workers. Care UK policies and procedures and statutory frameworks governing patient care in a prison setting will be used in order to deliver the highest standard of care to clients in line with National Guidelines.
It is essential that you have a BTEC, NVQ Level 3 in Pharmaceutical Sciences or equivalent, to enable registration with the GPhC.
If you are shortlisted, you will be contacted by Briony Dove, the Internal Recruiter for this role.
