Our unique position in the healthcare sector helps to ensure that we can better understand what employers and job applicants require and over the years, we've built an extensive network of industry and hospital contacts that is key to our fast and efficient service.

We recruit for a wide range of areas, including:
  • Hospital pharmacy
    Working in hospital environments, these professionals liaise with medical and nursing staff to ensure that patients receive their treatments and the most appropriate medications are being prescribed. They may advise on the selection, dose and administration of medicines and will discuss treatment options with patients. Some hospital pharmacists may also be involved in administrative and operational duties like purchasing, dispensing, testing and manufacture.
  • Pharmaceutical industry
    Before medications ever make it to hospital or community pharmacies, they spend years being researched, developed and tested - and there is a huge range of opportunity available to professionals seeking a job in the pharmaceuticals industry.  If you have a pharmacy, medical or life sciences degree, an array of career opportunities are available in the industry.  Just some of the many options include clinical research associates, clinical pharmacists, clinical physicians, clinical data management, clinical studies management and pharmaceutical project management.
  • Community pharmacy
    These jobs are generally based in high street, local and rural pharmacies and involve the sale and supply of medicines, as well as providing advice on topics including medication, various symptoms and general health.  Community pharmacists are responsible for ensuring that medicines are dispensed as prescribed and that patients are aware of how to take the drugs and any potential side effects. They may also advise on treatments for minor illnesses, small injuries and improving overall health and wellbeing. Some of the jobs in this field include pharmacy technicians, pharmacy assistants and pharmacy managers.
  • Therapy services
    In addition to pharmacy jobs and pharmaceutical careers, Apex also offers therapy recruitment services, working with specialists in fields such as physiotherapy and occupational therapy, as well as speech and language therapy.
