ShiftPosts’ convenient mobile application and intuitive web-based platform matches high-quality pharmacy professionals with pharmacies or clinics seeking relief, part-time, or full-time pharmacist work. The company’s software quickly matches pharmacy professionals to open positions throughout Canada–typically within minutes, resulting in a high fill-rate for relief shifts for pharmacy owners and managers.
For pharmacy professionals, ShiftPosts is a transparent platform allowing them to set their own terms and hourly rate, choosing when and where they want to work without the back and forth communication of traditional staffing services.
“To date, ShiftPosts has registered thousands of pharmacy professionals who fill open pharmacy shifts for pharmacy operators and municipalities alike. In one municipality, ShiftPosts successfully filled 99.95% of posted shifts which was an extraordinary accomplishment given the unprecedented challenges of the pandemic,” said Elizabeth Cooper, Chief Executive Officer of ShiftPosts. “We are thrilled to work with the CPhA as we connect pharmacy professionals with pharmacy operators for the betterment of healthcare in Canada.”
