Are you a pharmacist or pharmacy technician looking for a new career as a journalist?
Pharmacy and healthcare journalism could be the perfect challenge.

The Pharmaceutical Journal Publications, a division owned by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) and a leading publisher in pharmacy practice and science, is looking to appoint a pharmacist turned journalist to join its team.

You will be able to turn your hand to coverage of health policy affecting the practice of pharmacy — bringing insight to our readers with in-depth coverage. You have proven writing ability and are able to deliver high-quality content on time, making use of social media as well as contributing to data-driven graphics. You are unfazed when it comes to dealing with sector leaders and can use your contacts and skills to commission and edit content when the need arises.

You have a strong understanding of the NHS and the pharmacist’s changing role in healthcare. A keen news sense and a background in science, medical or healthcare publishing is desirable.

Working within a small but enthusiastic editorial team, the successful applicant will have the opportunity to develop in a progressive digital-first publishing environment.  
We offer excellent benefits, a supportive working environment and the opportunity for you to grow and enhance your existing skills. 
If this sounds like the role for you, please get in touch. The full job description can be found at:
