Join the future of pharmacy

At Countdown, we’ve changed the way pharmacy is done in New Zealand. By combining outstanding convenience – the ability to pop into the pharmacy while shopping – with low prices, Countdown Pharmacy has become the go-to for so many Kiwis.

With more than 25 Countdown Pharmacy locations, and more opening soon, we are committed to recruiting and retaining the very best staff to help us lead change. 

The people who join our team are passionate about serving their communities and in turn, we’re passionate about encouraging, supporting and developing them to be their very best. As such our policy is to promote from within, and our wide network of locations offer career development and opportunities that only New Zealand’s biggest retailer can provide.

We know how important it is to feel supported. Being part of the wider Countdown group gives access to experts at our support office who provide specialist HR, operational and professional advice. From a development standpoint, we provide funded training programmes to help you develop your professional, personal leadership and commercial skills.

To ensure an excellent understanding of professional pharmacy practice and provide customers with the highest quality service and advice, all key support roles are filled exclusively by Pharmacists. We appreciate that our team members are committed, highly trained professionals and always respect the professional integrity of our Pharmacist teams. As such, we don’t set individual sales targets, stay away from ‘upselling’ and remunerate our staff with competitive salaries.

We’re looking for dedicated new people to join our team – professionals who love sharing their expertise to improve health within local communities and connecting with a wide cross-section of New Zealanders every day.




Working for Countdown Pharmacy enabled me to grow professionally in many ways. I was initially fascinated by the innovative business model, which entailed unique challenges and experiences that one cannot experience in other pharmacies.
