What I’ve learned in my young(ish) life, is that everyone is different. We all have different familial experiences, we have different aspirations and our priorities in life are different. Some locums want a change and desire a permanent pharmacist role.
Some people love the buzz of being a locum pharmacist. They love the variety that it brings. They love the potential for travel and they enjoy the challenge of working with different teams in different pharmacies.
For some, that buzz fades and they want to settle down sooner than others. Taking on the world becomes secondary to taking on a mortgage. The challenge of working with different teams is replaced by the challenges of screaming children and Japanese-knot weed infestation. (Another story for another time.) My challenge changed from being a locum pharmacist, and became building a platform that made the lives of pharmacists and pharmacies a great deal easier!
Most locums, at some point, turn their hand to a permanent role, in a set location. Whether it be in a hospital, a care home, in a community pharmacy or elsewhere. Locate a Locum understand this transition and we’re here to help. A permanent role can offer stability, a regular income and career advancement opportunities.
