Salary: 29-35K OTE

About us:
Our mission is to change the world of healthcare recruitment. Pharmacies and opticians provide a vital service to their communities, but without the right staffing, they can’t provide that care. If a pharmacy does not have a pharmacist on site, it is required to close, preventing patients from accessing medicine. There were over 20,000 pharmacy closures in 2022 alone. We’re going to change that.

Using our online platform, pharmacies, and opticians have access to thousands of fully verified pharmacists and optometrists, who they can book at a click of a button. Think uber for locums. 

We’ve had significant early traction so we are looking to expand this team to continue driving growth across the UK.  

We are well-funded by high-profile investors and are led by start-up veterans behind two of London's most prominent tech companies.

 Your chance to make a difference: 
This is your chance to join a high-growth tech startup on the ground floor. We are passionate about learning and development and aim to maximise both your personal and career growth. 

We're looking for enthusiastic, mission-driven people who fit our values and are passionate about what we do. You're encouraged to apply even if your experience doesn't exactly match the job description.

Proven track record of hitting sales targets
