Top Pharmacy Jobs: Why You Should Apply

Pharmacy job 1: Full-time Pharmacist-in-charge

The Place: Cairns, QLD

With humid summers and mild, dry winters, and an average annual maximum temperature of 29°C (84.2°F), Cairns in Far North Queensland (FNQ) is one of the hottest (literally!) destinations Australians flock to for their holidays every year. The city has the more relaxed pace you would imagine of FNQ but also everything you could want for a great lifestyle, from great cafes and restaurants to major department stores. And with Cairns being the gateway to the Barrier Reef and all the amazing wonders FNQ is renowned for, the out-of-work-hours lifestyle is unbeatable.

The Job: Pharmacist-in-charge

  • Above-award negotiable annual remuneration package
  • Relocation assistance + permanent full-time benefits
  • Prime beachfront accommodation, valued at over $800,000

The role also offers the opportunity to work with a reputable organisation that looks after its staff in every aspect, with the potential for career progression with one of Queensland’s leading pharmacy groups. You will also get ongoing training and enjoy a great work environment in a recently renovated workplace with new fit outs and that has a focus on a holistic ‘whole health’ approach to pharmaceuticals.

So, if you’re ready for a great role in a highly liveable but vibrant smaller city that offers a huge array of lifestyle choices and more relaxed attitude, this is the role for you!

Pharmacy job 2: Pharmacist-in-charge

The Place: Manjimup, WA

Home of the famous ‘Pink Lady apple’, Manjimup sits in the south-west corner of Western Australia. Surrounded by ‘Karri forests’ (Karri being one of the tallest redwoods in the world), this pristine landscape is fast becoming known as the food bowl of Australia, meaning if you’re a foodie, you couldn’t live in a better place! And, while it may still have in many ways the relaxed air of a country town, Manjimup is the regional centre for the largest shire in south-western WA and only a short 3-to-4-hour drive from Perth for those times you need a bit of big city action.

The Job: Pharmacist-in-charge

  • $45.00 -$50.00 /hr + super negotiable upon experience
  • Potential partnership opportunities
  • Relocation assistance
  • Clear set career progression while part of a national, very reputable pharmacy group
  • Flexible 10-day fortnightly roster ensuring quality work/life balance

If you’re ready to ‘Go West’ and work with a pharmacy that has proudly served its friendly local community for 40 years, this pharmacist-in-charge role in Manjimup could be the true (Karri) tree change you’ve been looking for!

Pharmacy job 3: Pharmacist (Full-time)

The Place: Mackay, QLD

Just over 800kms north of Brisbane, midway between Rockhampton and Townsville, sits the town of Mackay. The town came to prominence on the back of the sugar industry but over time has diversified into a thriving regional city that is one of Queensland’s most accessible coastal cities by air, road or rail. And, like many cities in Far North Queensland, because it sits north of the Tropic of Capricorn, resident living in Mackay enjoy balmy summers and mild winters, making it temperate all-year-round.

The Job: Pharmacist (Full-time)

  • Remuneration of $40-$50.00p/h + super + benefits (negotiable)
  • Perfect opportunity for growth and to expand your skill set with one of the leading pharmacies in the territory
  • Flexible work-life balance
  • Relocation assistance if required

The role will appeal most to a pharmacist with a clinical mindset as the pharmacy works closely with a private hospital in the Mackay region. If your experience in this kind of setting is limited, there is the opportunity to be closely mentored by the proprietor and possibly network with the hospital with the aim of potential progress into the wards over time.

So, if you are searching for a unique opportunity to live in a vibrant FNQ town and work within a pharmacy setting full of learning and career development opportunities, this pharmacist role in Mackay is ideal.
