Warehouse Associate (Pharmacy)
Almost half of all adults take a repeat prescription, but 40% of medication isn’t taken as directed. This costs the NHS billions in waste each year. Echo’s mission is to remove the barriers to adherence through elegant, user-focused design and technology.
As Warehouse Associate you’ll play a crucial part in the Echo Operations Team. You’ll focus on managing medication and packaging stock levels, while using our back-end system to dispatch orders throughout the day. You will be responsible for the accuracy of orders that leave the door as well as helping order and check off stock accurately to maintain our stock levels at all times. A large part of the role will be packing the medication into boxes and helping dispatch it using the Royal Mail. It will be important for you to optimise the best way to make use of limited space for holding excess stock without compromising the user experience. We will be looking to draw on your experience to help shape the Operations Team as we scale.

Echo makes prescriptions painless. Through our revolutionary app patients can order NHS repeat prescriptions, get medications delivered straight to their door, and even get reminders when it’s time to take them too. It’s secure, simple to use, and, most importantly, free.
Our founders, Sai and Stephen, started Echo back in 2015 in response to their personal frustrations with the process of getting repeat medications.
We’ve come a long way in just a few years. Today, we now help tens of thousands of people get their repeat prescriptions — making their already busy lives that bit easier.
Our customers are our number one priority. We pride ourselves on giving them the best possible service. Nothing motivates us more than when we get amazing feedback from the people using Echo to manage their medication.
