Jonathan Bridgett

Jonathan works as Regional Pharmacy Manager for Tesco and is new to South Staffordshire LPC, representing Company Chemists’ Association (CCA) contractors.

I completed my pharmacy degree & PhD at the University of Nottingham, before going into Industry, initially with Abbott Laboratories and then with AstraZeneca.  After 18 years spent mainly in manufacturing & operations management roles, I decided on a mid-life career change and moved into community pharmacy with Tesco Pharmacy in 2010.

Although this was an initial ‘shock to the system’ – I hadn’t worked in community pharmacy since locuming in 1992 – I have loved the customer-facing roles and the buzz of the retail/supermarket environment.

Since joining Tesco, I have worked as a Pharmacy Manager in both Congleton and Meir Park (Stoke-on-Trent), before moving into a Regional Pharmacy Manager role in 2014.  In my regional role, I support the Tesco Pharmacies in Staffordshire, Shropshire, Cheshire and North Wales.

I live in Macclesfield and I am a keen/exhausted family man (married with 3 children).  My main other interests are music, running, swimming …… and being an enthusiastic Liverpool fan in an area mainly populated by Man Utd and Man City fans!
