Senior pharmacy technician, procurement and systems manager
...I'm known for being approachable.
After working in a supermarket for seven years, I really wanted a career change and thought it would be fascinating to learn how medicines work.
I joined the Trust as a pre-registration pharmacy technician, studying for two years on the job. Within three years of joining I’ve been promoted to senior pharmacy technician, procurement and systems manager, which I’m so proud of. The wellbeing of our patients and staff is paramount and I always do all I can to be on hand when people need me.
Working in pharmacy has increased my confidence and I feel more empowered to push things forward and be stronger with my opinions.
It’s a challenge too, of course, but my colleagues are always there for me when I need advice. We have a really open culture and are honest with each other when we need support.
We’re a busy NHS department but this can be fun! We have to be flexible and move our work around each other to accommodate the demands of the business. We think on our feet and are dynamic.
So, why West Suffolk? Well that’s easy for me to answer. If you genuinely want to enjoy your work and meet friends, not just colleagues, then join us.
