Jennifer Day works as part of the team as a Consultancy Implementer and her role involves visiting members to provide tailored support and advice for maximising the potential of their pharmacies.

“I joined the team in July this year, having completed a six month secondment last summer. My pharmacy career stretches back 18 years, which I started just after the birth of my eldest daughter. At that time I accidentally fell into a little part-time job role and really enjoyed it, so I just went from there!

During those 18 years I have been able to complete my counter assistant course, NVQ 2 and NVQ 3. I came out of branch four years ago to become field based, but from there I was able to complete my ACPT during lockdown whilst helping in branch.

More recently I completed my vaccinator training, which allows me to administer the COVID vaccination. I really enjoy learning new things and I can’t wait to see what comes next.

There is absolutely no such thing as a typical working day in this job! The majority of my time is spent going out and visiting various Numark branches to facilitate the services that we offer, including, Golden Tote, HasHealth and Hey Pharmacist. My job involves a lot of travelling but it is extremely rewarding to be able to meet so many of our members and make a noticeable impact on their businesses.

I am extremely passionate about the work I do, and so the best part of what I do involves visiting new places, seeing new people and showcasing the things that we can offer.

Outside of work I like spending time with my family. I am currently in the middle of a furniture renovation project which involves sanding, painting and trying to get everything looking nice. I also enjoy going to the cinema and doing a bit of socialising with friends, not too much though obviously!

My parents have had a really big impact on me as a person, they have stuck with me through thick and thin and I don’t know where I’d be without them. I’ve seen them work really hard with their own business when I was a child and we have all stuck together during the tough times and the good times, and for that I’d have to say that they have had a huge impact in my life.

Looking forwards there are some new features coming up in the next few months with regards to Golden Tote; Price Watch in particular will be really useful for our customers, and there are always updates when it comes to Hey Pharmacist. It is a really exciting time to be working in this industry and I am excited to see what comes next, we are always looking for innovative ways to help our members and I am glad to be a part of it.
