Job Details

Our Company

At LloydsDirect (formerly Echo), we're on a mission to simplify pharmacy.

Since starting out in 2015, we've grown from a plucky tech start-up to the fastest growing pharmacy in the UK. Our apps help over half a million people to order, track and get reminders for their NHS prescriptions, all in one place.

In 2019, we joined forces with LloydsPharmacy - one of the biggest names in high street pharmacy. So today, we're an online pharmacy that's local, too. It's been an exciting journey. But really, we're just getting started.

As we prepare to take the next leap forward, we're looking for bright minds to join us - from designers and developers, through to pharmacists, clinicians and patient care advisors.

If you'd like to be a part of our inclusive and diverse teams in Shoreditch and Perivale - where we run one of the busiest pharmacies in England - we'd love to meet you.

We are a passionate and friendly group of pharmacists, dispensers, fulfilment associates, engineers, developers, designers and everything in between, working towards the goal of making it easier for people to get and manage their medicine.

We are dedicated to creating opportunities and reducing barriers for everyone, we are committed to ensuring that any forms of discrimination or biases are excluded from our recruitment and selection process, performance management and pay, and that promotion and retention is fairly granted across all our operations. We are committed to seeking 'belonging', here at LloydsDirect. The space where we represent and understand our diversity, promote and encourage our equality and inevitably create a space where we are all free to grow and demonstrate our talents...a place where we ALL belong.
