We are delighted to announce that we’ll be offering 2-week, paid, practical placements for 3rd year MPharm students this summer.
We are also pleased to share that there will be Pre-Registration 2020/2021 offers made to students who are passionate about community pharmacy and perform well during their placement with us. Pre-registration offers will be made throughout the summer and before the Oriel interviews take place.
By securing a Summer Placement in Scotland, you may have the opportunity to be added onto our NES preferred list for Pre-registration 2020/2021 .
The recruitment process:
You will just need to complete an online application form via our website, www.boots.jobs. Following this, you will be asked to take an online assessment which should take no longer than 45 minutes. We will then review all applications and let you know if you’ve been successful! We know it’s a busy time of the year for you so you’ll not be required to attend an interview.

What our 2018 cohort told us…
“The staff throughout the Pharmacy Placement were really supportive and were always available to answer any question I had. It was a great insight into all areas of pharmacy”
“I had an incredible team to work with during my placement. I've never thought of working as a Community Pharmacist before but this is definitely something I'm considering now."
“My third year summer placement gave me the opportunity to further my development in a safe and clinical environment. The placement gave me first-hand experience of community pharmacy, working alongside expert-Pharmacist”.
