Career development

Working for one of the UK’s leading pharmaceutical distributors and wholesalers, you’ll have access to a whole range of opportunities that many other companies can’t provide. The sheer diversity of our services means that, when it comes to developing your career, you have a real choice over where you want to go.

We are currently offering apprenticeships at all levels of the organisation, level 3 to level 5, linked to leadership skills and formal qualifications.

And with the support of the global Walgreens Boots Alliance group behind you, there really are no limits.

Sarah-Louise, Customer Development Executive, Health and Beauty, joined Alliance Healthcare in 2011 and is thrilled she has been given the opportunity to progress.

Originally working in the Telesales Department for OTC Direct, Sarah-Louise has been in her current role since May 2016. She ensures that all supplier orders are processed as smoothly as possible.

"I love my job - I have gone up a step in my career and that makes me feel proud. Alliance Healthcare really looks after its employees and I’ve had lots of support and encouragement. I have fortnightly meetings with my line manager where we talk about how my role is going and he helps me to learn new skills such as decision-making."
