Relief Pharmacist Travel Assignment in Northern Saskatchewan

If you are looking to take some time for yourself before and after Christmas, and to make some money while you’re at it, you should definitely apply to this pharmacist job.

Christmas is an expensive time of year. Think about how many people you have to buy presents for. Think about how many parties you will be going to. You might even be flying or otherwise travelling a long distance to visit family and friends. All of this adds up, which can be a financial burden. But how do you manage this financial burden while simultaneously holding down a demanding full-time job? This is a challenging predicament… but we have a solution for you!

Imagine that you could travel up north for a few weeks, come back and fulfill your social obligations over the holidays, and then fly back north again after all of the festivities die down. Maybe you could feel even more relaxed at the end of the year, knowing that you can conveniently settle back into work after Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Read on to get a sense of what this job is all about.
