Working at PHARMAC
PHARMAC's staff have a range of skills, from those required in most businesses (such as administration, communication, legal or accounting skills) to the more specialised skills required to enable PHARMAC to undertake its role. These can include expertise in medicine, health economics, commercial procurement, pharmacy or pharmacology, and contract management.
For twenty years we have made decisions about the medicines you collect from your pharmacy. Now PHARMAC’s work is expanding to include the medicines and devices that are used in hospitals. It’s an exciting time for PHARMAC as we take on this new work, and develop new approaches.
The PHARMAC model is unique in the world. We’re a small organisation (around 100 staff) where your expertise is respected, and you can really make a difference.
If you want to make a difference to the lives of New Zealanders, and you thrive in a busy and challenging environment, then we encourage you to apply for a role with us.
