The counter assistant is the first point of contact for all customers of the community pharmacy. This is often the person who will build up the most important levels of contact with the public.
This award recognises excellence in the knowledge and service to retails customers. Judges hope to reward an outstanding counter assistant who regularly goes above and beyond their job description to make a real difference in the local community.
Judges will be looking for:
- Individual contribution to the pharmacy, its business and a positive impact on customers.
- Levels of excellence and commitment to the counter assistant role.
- Initiatives or innovations that the individual has established or been involved with.
- Clear evidence of teamwork and excellent communication between individual, colleagues and costumers.
