work experience

Practical experience is one of the best ways to learn. At National Pharmacies, we are proud to offer work experience programs to secondary students and university students who are either studying, or have an interest in studying, Pharmacy.

Work experience offers fun, practical experience in a pharmacy environment for students. Work experience candidates will be treated as an employee and made to feel like part of the team at the store they are based.

Due to business requirements, we can only offer a limited number of work experience spots for each store, so we generally approve applicants on a first-in-first served basis.

To apply, download the application form and fill it in and submit it at your preferred store.

It is recommended that you call the manager at your preferred store before submitting the form to secure dates and see if they have any spots available.
