Clinical Pharmacist  

Pharmacy Department, Timaru Hospital

Full or part-time options considered


Here at Timaru Hospital our Pharmacists do much more than dispense medicines.  In fact, as an integral member of a broad multi-disciplinary clinical service team, you'll enjoy active clinical involvement as a matter of course, plus, if taking up the role on a part-time basis, have the luxury of time off to pursue other personal interests. 

Our Pharmacy team is involved in the provision of clinical pharmacy services, medicines reconciliation, medicines information, patient counselling, on-call services and inpatient and outpatient dispensing, and you will become an integral member of the clinical pharmacy team. 

The role also requires a high standard of pharmacy practice to oversee pharmacy operational duties, including ward and theatre medication stock management, dispensing, non-sterile compounding, general dispensary and administrative duties. 

You will be self-motivated, accountable, efficient, accurate and meticulous, a real team player with excellent customer service and communication skills. Ideally you will have sound experience in a busy community or hospital pharmacy. Newly qualified graduates will be considered.  

Hospital experience would be an advantage, but it is not essential, as training would be provided, although we are eager to develop a closer connection with community pharmacies and therefore having a community background would also be considered of value.    

If you have excellent time management, planning and organisational skills, are a quick learner and able to perform in an accurate and precise manner, then we look forward to your application. 

The successful applicant will be a New Zealand Registered Pharmacist, competent with TONIQ or a similar dispensing system, along with basic ability in using the Microsoft Office suite. 

Please apply for this vacancy online at 

We look forward to receiving your application directly via our Careers Site.
