Pharmacy and Optical the Asda way
At Asda we want to make life better for people by making the important things in life more accessible and affordable. We want our customers to know that we're there for them, supporting their needs and the needs of the local community. Optical and Pharmacy is proving to be so popular we're opening more and more, bringing an irresistible combination of high standards and low prices in two vital areas of people's lives. This also means we're opening up more fantastic career opportunities for Pharmacists, Optical Managers and Optometrists who want a future that can offer so much more.
Making a difference every day
If you get a buzz from being busy with a huge variety of responsibilities and different things happening every day, Asda could be right up your street. More and more people see us as an essential part of their community health service, so they'll be trusting you to give them your personal attention and your professional opinion, and always delivered in the friendly way that is the Asda way. You've got to be a good 'people person', because meeting new people, giving them great service and building up a relationship with the local community is very much part of the job. Being a good leader to colleagues is hugely important too. As one of our Pharmacists said recently: "I love the chance to interact with so many different kinds of people. No two days are the same but one thing's for sure. It's never quiet!"
In store. In touch
When you're in a store you can do more. The pharmacy and optical units are important contributors to the store's bottom line, so besides delivering great service you'll have the scope to develop the business and put forward new ideas. And you'll also be part of the wider store management team, working with retail colleagues and sharing the challenges and opportunities presented by a growing business.
