Mō tēnei tūranga mahi | About this role
Team Leader – haematology, oncology and compounding services Pharmacy Services
Where you’ll be working: Waikato Hospital
The Details: Full time, permanent. Monday-Friday
Take the opportunity and challenge yourself by stepping up into a new career or taking on a move to a large tertiary level hospital with provision of complex services to regional patients.
A diverse, yet satisfying role in which you will not only oversee Waikato DHB compounding services, but play a key role in helping to coordinate and lead pharmacy services to the oncology and haematology areas. Oversight of compounding needs for an ever increasing number of clinical trials is also on your list. A highly organised person, with clear communication and great relationship skills, you will provide a crucial link to hospital staff to the pharmacy compounding service. The role includes line management of operational pharmacists as well as pharmacy technicians who undertake compounding and trials work.
Based in Hamilton, it is an ideal time to escape the super city rat race or size up from a more rural location or smaller secondary hospital setting. Excellent housing, schooling and a vibrant city lifestyle awaits.
A full time position working Monday to Friday, the position requires an experienced NZ registered pharmacist, preferably with previous experience in hospital pharmacy and aseptic compounding and operation of a compounding suite. A post-graduate qualification in clinical pharmacy is desirable but not essential. Further learning is encouraged and supported.
