Clinical Pharmacist
Pharmacy Department - Timaru Hospital

Permanent, full-time, 80 hours per fortnight

Monday to Friday, office hours, (plus on call component)

Life is a collection of small moments: meaningful moments, challenging moments, moments to remember. At SCDHB, we want to support our people to enjoy more of the moments that matter. Are you ready to join us?

Right now, we're looking for a Pharmacist with a good level of experience to join our expanding team in Timaru.

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.

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 medication stock management, dispensing, non-sterile compounding, general dispensary and administrative duties.

You will be self-motivated, accountable, efficient, accurate and meticulous, a team player with excellent 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. 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 as well as having good communication skills, are a quick learner and be 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 dispensing systems along and familiar with using the Microsoft Office suite.

Why choose South Canterbury DHB?

As one of the country's smaller DHBs our people always have room to move and grow - you'll get a wider exposure to specialties and enjoy the benefits of a flat structure: processes that run smoothly and a fun, friendly culture. With us, you're more than just a number; you're part of a team where everyone knows your name. You'll be supported to thrive through our many professional development opportunities and have the chance to share your expertise as part of our graduate mentoring programme.

On top of all that, you'll get to enjoy the fantastic Timaru lifestyle: between the beach and the mountains, work-life balance is truly achievable here.

At SCDHB, integrity, collaboration, accountability, respect and excellence are at the heart of everything we do. We are a proudly diverse team, as we know a diverse and inclusive workforce achieves the best outcomes for our patients and communities. If you share in these core values and bring them into every aspect of your patient care, we can't wait for you to join us.
