We have an exciting opportunity for a pharmacist to join our Education and Professional Development team as a Learning Delivery Pharmacist for 12-months. You will be passionate about developing and advancing the pharmacist workforce to meet the changing needs of patients and the healthcare system.

As a key member of the Education and Professional Development team, you will be responsible for developing and quality assuring educational content, which includes eLearning, training modules, webinars, and events (both in-person and virtual). Your role will involve collaborating with subject matter experts and a cross-directorate project group to deliver the RPS learning workplan.

We offer excellent benefits, a flexible working environment, and the opportunity for you to grow and enhance your existing skills at a national level.


  • Pharmacy degree.
  • Excellent knowledge of pharmacy practice in Great Britain.
  • Experience of designing and quality assuring educational content, including eLearning, training modules, webinars, and workshops.
  • Strong understanding of educational methodologies and adult learning principles.
  • Experience of developing and maintaining good working relationships with stakeholders.
  • Ability to work flexibly to assist the delivery of educational events in evenings and weekends where needed.
  • Ability to travel within GB to deliver educational events, attending meetings and represent the RPS at conferences as required.

The Directorate

The RPS Professional Membership & Education (PMED) directorate is responsible for:

  • Leading and supporting members and the profession to deliver and continually improve high quality patient care.
  • Defining and assuring post-registration standards of pharmacy practice through curricula, assessments, and credentialing.

We are a small but dynamic team of pharmacists who are passionate about improving care through education and professional development. The team’s main purpose is to advance practice through education, learning and professional development.
