When you join the Australian Pharmacy Council (APC), you're a part of something much bigger. You'll help advance pharmacy education when you:

  • work in our internal teams
  • contribute your knowledge to our Board or committees
  • help our working groups drill down into best practice

Our mission

Advancing and assuring quality in pharmacy education

I am grateful to be part of a team that not only supports me and my development, but also genuinely cares about the health of our community. Our team is passionate about improving pharmacy education. We have leaders that go the extra mile in everything that they do to ensure it. - Anna, Events and Communications Officer

Join a high-performing team

We are proud of our strong team, supportive environment and innovative leaders.

While we're developing the future of pharmacy education, we also invest in developing our people. 

We're a small team, so we work extremely closely together. We love nothing more than to celebrate our successes, both on the frontline and behind the scenes.

We stay busy year-round, but as part of our commitment to a holistically safe and healthy workplace, staff benefits include:

  • a modern office
  • onsite parking
  • access to our Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
  • regular training and development
