Travelling Hospital Pharmacist - Icon Group




The opportunity:
Are you a community pharmacist or newly registered pharmacist looking for an incredible opportunity? We are looking for an enthusiastic and passionate pharmacist to join us in a full-time capacity, to deliver optimum patient-centred pharmaceutical care across several of our hospital pharmacy locations. You don't need hospital experience, just a willingness to learn.

This is a fantastic opportunity to partner with clinical teams and develop a broad range of hospital skills in fast-paced and supportive environments. This role also provides you with the opportunity to significantly diversify your career, as you will be exposed to a variety of multidisciplinary services, including oncology, hospital, and compounding. With the support of our collaborative teams, you will receive the right training and support to succeed. 

This role involves some travel to other pharmacies within our network in Brisbane and Southeast QLD region. On rare occasion, this position sometimes requires travel further afield to Northern NSW or North QLD.

Flights and accommodation are also provided (where needed) for travel to destinations further outside of Brisbane.

This is an incredibly rewarding, exciting and career-enhancing opportunity to gain highly sort after, industry applauded, hospital pharmacy experience. But don’t just take our word for it. Here’s just some of the wonderful things one of our current Travelling/Reliever pharmacist Jodie Wilson has to say about her experience in the role:

“One of the main things that I love about being a reliever pharmacist, is that it allows me to combine my love of travel, with my passion for pharmacy and truly making a meaningful difference in patients’ lives. I enjoy the variety of working with different teams in different locations, it keeps things fresh and exciting – no two days are the same. Working as a reliever pharmacist has exposed me to many different clinical areas in hospital pharmacy, where I’ve developed the type of knowledge and experience that I would not have gained otherwise.” – Jodie Wilson, Reliever Pharmacist Brisbane
