    I started off doing that job. I'd say it's a good start, as you get to go round lots of pharmacies, and see the best bits of them all. It also gives you confidence if you ever want to be a locum, because it is really the same as being one.

    If I had the choice of being in one store, or a relief manager at your stage, then I'd be the relief manager.

        Hi Pari

        A relief manager works at the store when the regular pharmacist is on holiday, off ill etc. When they are there, they do all the duties a regular pharmacist does, and maybe some management things as well.

        So your working week consists of travelling around, to cover people at lots of different shops. This gives you some good experience, as you get to see the way a lot of pharmacists run their store.

          The only thing I'd say about being a relief manager is that you've got all the hassle of being a locum and not knowing what went on the day before but you're also responsible for being the manager.
