Ward MM offer peer support, professional development, competitive remuneration, and potential for career diversity and progression under the supervision of a respected leadership team. If this sounds attractive and you are up for a challenge and an exciting career, we are waiting to hear from you.

Ward Medication Management are the largest and most sophisticated provider of clinical pharmacy services in the Australian aged sector and are expanding our services into the broader community.

Our vision is to eliminate medication related issues through being future thinkers and driving industry collaboration.

We currently have a vacancy in South Australia for an accredited pharmacist with high service standards who is enthusiastic, motivated and with a passion for making a difference, to join our team and work alongside us.

Reporting to the Clinical Operations Director, you will lead a small team to deliver quality medication review and QUM services for designated clients at aged care facilities, in the community and to GP partners in South Australia.  As part of the QUM services you deliver, you will provide educational sessions, medication audits and attend MAC (Medication Advisory Committee) meetings. You will be responsible for maintaining and developing excellent professional relationships with all customers, both internal and external, and supporting the WardMM business strategy.

In addition to delivering clinical services directly to residents and staff of aged care facilities and clients living in the community, you will be given the autonomy to grow your region and role.  Ward MM will support you in providing and developing additional services designed to create better health outcomes for your region. You will also be empowered to expand your network of aged care partners and GP relationships in metro and regional South Australia.

Ward MM are experts in medication management through innovative quality clinical services, data driven analysis and partnerships. We want to eliminate medication related issues through being future thinkers and driving industry collaboration. The Ward MM Clinical Excellence team (headed by the highly acclaimed Dr Chris Alderman) utilizes macro data together with the latest industry trends to provide education and research with the key focus to resolve medication issues. Partnerships are at the heart of how we work. When working in aged care, our highly trained pharmacists work onsite with individual facilities and with GPs making sure resident care is at the forefront of everyone’s agenda. Our holistic combination of reviews, training and support materials, deliver a professional service which mitigates risk, promotes clinical best practice and ensures the highest possible care.

To succeed in this role you will share our holistic vision for health. You will have excellent communication skills; listening, written and verbal and be able to communicate complex concepts to both technical and non-technical stakeholders. You will be a highly skilled collaborator able to build relationships with internal and external business partners at all levels, supporting the organisation ethos – Connect Network Share, and deliver professional service standards. You will be effective at managing your time and tasks and be constantly striving to extend your knowledge and professional development.

We are offering a competitive remuneration package commensurate with skills and experience. Work arrangements are flexible part time hours (0.6 FTE) with the potential to move to full time.
