Our client, located in the Northwest Territories, is looking to hire a staff pharmacist for the following six-week contract assignment:

  • 40 hours per week
  • $60-$65 per hour (based on previous experience)
  • Preference will be given to those candidates who are already licensed to work as a pharmacist in the Northwest Territories – if you’re still interested in the position but not yet licensed, you will need to obtain your license prior to being accepted

We expect to receive a lot of interest in this assignment, as all expenses will be taken care of including your flight, accommodations, and more (aside from meals, which you will be responsible for). The Northwest Territories is a truly beautiful and expansive area of the country that has a lot to offer the more adventurous candidates out there, and as weather across the country is getting warmer leading into the summer, there is a lot of opportunity for hiking, exploration, and more!
