National pre-registration trainee pharmacist recruitment 2019

All nationally funded Pre-Registration Pharmacist training programmes in England and Wales will be recruited via a centralised recruitment and selection process using the Oriel system. A large number of primary care pharmacy training programmes in England and Wales are also being recruited via this process. Community pharmacy programmes that are included will be identifiable within the Oriel system; they can be identified and filtered as Primary Care programmes.

You can register on the Oriel system at any point to familiarise yourself with the system before applying when the application window opens and are strongly encouraged to read the applicant handbook available on the website.

Community Pharmacy

Some primary care (community pharmacy and general practice) employers will recruit to pharmacy training programmes outside of the Oriel system. These will be advertised independently by individual employers and do not form part of the Oriel application process. If you are interested in applying for any of these programmes it will be necessary for you to submit a separate application as per individual employer guidance/ timelines.

These may be advertised via:
