About Us

PHARMAC is the Crown Entity that ensures New Zealanders have the medicines, medical devices and vaccines they need to help them get well and stay well.  Every year PHARMAC makes more medicines available for more New Zealanders.

We are committed to championing workplace inclusion, acknowledging that in order to do their best work, people must be able to bring their whole selves to work and work in a way that best suits their individual needs.  This includes supporting accessibility and being willing to make accommodations to facilitate the inclusion in the workplace of people of all gender identities, ages, ethnicities, sexual orientations, disability and religions.

The Role

Tender Analyst

This position manages PHARMAC’s annual tender: an open, contestable process for the supply of pharmaceuticals. This process generates significant (multi-million dollar) savings for New Zealand – savings that can then be used to purchase other pharmaceuticals. This position involves a high level of responsibility and makes a real difference to the lives of New Zealanders.

This opportunity will suit someone with a few years work experience with an interest in the interface of business and health. We are also interested in receiving applications from recent graduates with relevant skills and qualifications that would make them ideal for the Tender Analyst role.

The annual tender process provides pharmaceutical companies with the opportunity to gain sole supply for a product for approximately three years. Given the scale of the tender and its financial value, it is critical the process is well run and coordinated. Good time management skills are essential, as is good numerical ability, an eye for detail and robust process, and the ability to prioritise and multi task.

About You

We are seeking applications from suitably-qualified people who:

  • are commercially astute
  • have good time management skills and solid numerical ability, with an eye for detail
  • demonstrate a proven ability to communicate clearly and concisely, in writing and verbally
  • are able to build solid relationships, internally and externally

Experience in running tender processes would be an advantage but is not required. An understanding or interest in the health sector would be an advantage but is not required.

PHARMAC is a learning organisation that supports its people to develop and you will have a thirst to learn and use new skills to support our work.

PHARMAC is a pro-equity organisation, with a particular focus on Māori and Pacific Peoples’ health gain and we are open to exploring flexible work arrangements on request.  We will contribute to relocation costs for those moving to Wellington to take up this role.

The PHARMAC model is unique.  We are a small organisation (around 130 staff) where your expertise is respected and you can really make a difference for people. We take pride in what we do, work hard and have fun.

We will be considering applications as they are received, so apply today!
