Pharma sales salaries: What do the statistics say?



PHARMACEUTICALS Sales and marketing salaries are on the rise.

But are they justified?

In Australia, the average salary for a pharmacist is $92,500.

But it’s a lot more expensive to be a pharman in New Zealand, where the average wage is $52,000.

The average pharmacist’s average pay has been rising since the introduction of the Medicare rebate, which will increase to $30,000 for a family of four starting in 2018.

“It’s a bit like you’re not being paid enough money,” said Dr Scott Jones, an assistant professor of pharmacy at the University of Sydney.

He said it was a misconception that the average pharman’s salary was a reflection of their skills, or their experience.

“They’re probably not really paying that much,” he said.

“We’ve got the world’s most experienced pharmacy technicians and we’re not going to see the average pay increase that the general public will.”

The average pharmacists’ pay is not going up as much as the average people’s pay, which is actually what’s happening.

“He said the number of pharmans on the payroll needed to be set at a level that is commensurate with the amount of training they have and the quality of their training.

But Dr Jones said the increased salary was “not necessarily” justified.”

In the long run, I would think that people will realise that the pharmacists that are actually working at a pharmacy aren’t necessarily the best pharmacists,” he told ABC Radio National’s Today program.”

But in the short run, the increase in pay is going to be less than what people would normally see.

“The National Drug Strategy also states that pharmacists will be paid $90,000, but that it will be “more than compensated for by the increase” in the rebate.

It also recommends that the Federal Government establish a pharma salary award fund.

The Government says it will provide a $20 million grant to the Government-funded Pharmacy Council of Australia (PCA) to encourage greater collaboration between pharmacy schools and pharmacy training centres.

But the National Drug Advisory Council says the grant is “not a credible mechanism to support an incentive-based system of salary increases”.
