We Are Looking to Hire a Locum Pharmacist for a 6 Month Contract in Northern Ontario

This community pharmacist role is an excellent way to experience what it’s like to work in a high-volume pharmacy, while saving money by living in a more remote location.

Perhaps you have been licensed as a pharmacist for a while now and have not had the chance to apply yourself fully in a pharmacy work environment. Maybe you live in northern Ontario and have been previously working with low prescription volumes. You might even be finding it difficult to find a place to rent in Toronto, but are worried about the availability of work outside the city. This pharmacy job solves all three of these challenges and more. Read on to see why:

Job Duties:

  • You will work for a duration of 6 months.
  • Full-time hours: Your total work time per week will amount to 37.5 hours.
  • There may be the chance to work extra hours on the weekends.

  • As such, you will need to be very efficient and accurate in your processing of prescriptions.
  • You will procure drugs based on incoming prescription scripts.
  • You will be providing information about dosage and prescription side effects to patients.
  • There will always be another licensed pharmacist on the premises while you are working. Your work will give the pharmacy owner time to increase the pharmacy’s amount of business.

Necessary Qualifications:

  • You must be licensed as a pharmacist in the province of Ontario.
  • You must have graduated from a Bachelor’s of Science in Pharmacy university program.
  • You should have at between 1-3 years of retail pharmacy experience.
