Pharmacy Technicians, Pharmacy Assistants


If you are looking to build or advance your career as a Pharmacy Technician or Pharmacist Assistant you need the type of experience you will receive at Stafford Pharmacy & Home Healthcare. We are currently recruiting to maintain our technical staffing levels.

We are a community pharmacy, operating under the PharmaChoice banner, located in Lethbridge, Alberta.  Our primary focus is on customized compounding and home healthcare.   We have successfully organized a complete home healthcare solution for our clients and patients.

This position involves the full spectrum of technician duties that includes:

  • Customer service,
  • Patient file administration,
    • accepting prescriptions from clients;
    • creating/updating patient electronic files;
    • Filling prescriptions;
    • Compliance packaging;
    • Assisting clinical pharmacists directly,
      • Scheduling/organizing medication reviews and patient care plans;
      • Managing patient care follow ups;
      • Maintaining drug inventories, that includes,
        • Product ordering;
        • Receiving of orders and drug file maintenance;
        • Assisting other technical staff in the management of a busy dispensary;
      • Technicians are involved in non-sterile and sterile compounding;
        • The preparation of customized dosage forms, for both human and animal patients.
        • Preparing home parenteral antibiotic therapy in an aseptic environment – in a Microsphere® isolation hood.

Although compounding for human patients continues to be a focus of this pharmacy, our veterinary compounding offers a unique opportunity to be part of the care and treatment of a wide variety of companion animals.  That includes the expected canine and feline patients as well as the more exotic patients such as ferrets, birds, snakes, hedgehogs, guinea pigs, lizards, frogs, and much more.

The position requires that applicants be graduates of a recognized pharmacy technician program. This would have included exposure to both non-sterile and sterile compounding with a community pharmacy and hospital pharmacy practicum.

We invite new graduates to apply as well as those technicians registered with the Alberta College of Pharmacists.   Experience in a compounding pharmacy is certainly an advantage but is NOT a pre-requisite for employment.

Requisite Skills/Abilities:

  • A willingness to learn new skills and gain new knowledge,
  • The ability to remain organized and to work efficiently.
  • Working well on your own as well as with others, as part of a team is important,
  • The sincere desire to help people,
  • Excellent communication skills,

Our current dispensary software system is Telus Health’s Assyst-Rx-S (also referred to as Simplicity Plus).  It is assumed that the applicant will have gained mastery of one of the major dispensary software systems such as Assyst-Rx-S, Kroll, Nexus, or PharmaClick.  A motivated individual will have little difficulty gaining a working knowledge of another dispensary software system after a short orientation.

This position is available immediately.

We offer competitive wages based on the applicant’s inventory of skills and their previous work experience.  All full time employees are offered group benefits that include (but not limited to) short term and optional long term disability insurance, dental coverage, extended health benefits, purchase discounts and continuing education allowances.
