Job Description

Client & Location Information

Aged Care Pharmacy located towards the north east of the Melbourne CBD.

Job Specification

A 12 month Contract for a full-time Pharmacist to work with this Aged Care Pharmacy team is available to cover Maternity Leave.

You will be working alongside a diverse, fun group of people who express that they enjoy their work environment very much. Your role will involve the opportunity to be involved in communication with nursing and medical personnel, dispensing, checking DAA's and medication chart checks.

The roster will be negotiable, nominally 9am-5:30pm Mon-Fri, but you will need to be flexible to be able to work 1 in 4 Saturdays or Sundays (not both) and sometimes one later finish at 9pm during the week (with a later start that day).

Skills Required

* Registration as a Pharmacist with the Pharmacy Board of Australia (AHPRA).
* Previous experience with Nursing Home dispensing and DAA checking desirable.
* Previous experience with FRED dispensing system highly regarded.
* Experience with Unit Dose, MultiDose & MediSachet would be ideal, but not essential as training can be given.

The most important thing is that you bring a desire to work within this area of aged care pharmacy rather than the retail pharmacy environment where you have that contact with the public all the time. This is about embracing a good team environment and offering good service to the aged care community.

Salary & Benefits

Negotiable, dependent on capability.
