Boots drops paid summer work for some students

By News team

Boots UK is no longer offering five-week paid summer placements for first and second year pharmacy students, PJ Online has learnt.

Instead, the company is offering unpaid two-week placements for more first and second year students, with five-week paid placements being retained for third year students.

Head of professional capability at Boots UK Marc Donovan told PJ Online that the change has been made as a result of feedback received during research conducted with MPharm undergraduates. “The changes to the programme are designed to introduce undergraduates to the more clinical role that pharmacists play in the community and meet the flexibility needs of the students,” he explained.
