    Hi all, I'm new to this forum and was wondering if anyone could help me with a job application.
    I'm trying to apply for a job in a hospital pharmacy for a pharmacy technician. It states that its a good job for newly qualified techs but Im struggling with my supporting information. It has space for 1500 words which is worrying me that I'm not giving enough info.
    Here's what I have so far, if anyone could give me any advise it would be gratefully appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    I am currently working in a community pharmacy as a dispenser where I completed an NVQ level 3 diploma in Pharmaceutical Sciences apprenticeship and studied at Sandwell College. I have recently qualified and received my technical certificate and diploma certificate. I would like to extend my knowledge base and learn new skills and I think that this role would give me the opportunity to do this as I am keen to progress within this field. I am a capable and hard working individual and pay close attention to detail and accuracy as needed in this area and although I have limited experience I feel it wouldn’t take me long to develop the necessary skills needed.
    I am a compassionate person and value any interactions with patients, their represenatives or healthcare proffesional and approach any situation in a calm and composed manner while maintaining a degree of proffesionalism, insuring that the information I am giving is well understood and asking a colleague or pharmacist to step in and help if I feel that the patient needs more support.

    I would greatly appreciate a chance to prove to you that I am the person you are looking for to fill the position in your business.

    I can't be sure without seeing the form, but it sounds like it is the equivalent of the covering letter. In which case they want to know why you want to do this sort of work, why you want to work with this organisation, and what your 3 strongest skills are (ie why you'd be good at the job)

    In terms of style, what you have written there, although possibly true, is just a list of claims, with no evidence. You have to give examples of when you have done these things, so for example for compassion you might mention when you prescribed to some particularly vulnerable group of patients and how you adapted your style. You can't just say 'I can do this' you have to say 'I can do this, for example I did it here'.

    Threeport drift has nailed the main problem. Ideally you need to go through the person specification and demonstrate that you meet the main points on it by giving an example for each.
