How Locumate Works

Whether you’re a pharmacy looking for staff or a locum wanting work, Locumate is Australia’s number one locum marketplace. You will want to know how Locumate works. We’re transforming the locum recruitment experience by offering a smarter way for pharmacies and locums to connect. Visit the AppStore or Google Playstore to download Locumate.

Here’s how it works:


  • Create a free account and answer a number of quick questions about your pharmacy, e.g. number of scripts being dispensed, what software you use, and whether you provide pharmacotherapy.
  • Create a new job whenever you need a locum. All your details are saved so you don’t need to enter your pharmacy information each time.
  • Once a locum accepts a shift, view their profile and communicate directly for a smooth arrival and transition to the job.
  • Know exactly how much a locum charges upfront
  • Leave a review and feedback to empower locums to do the job well
  • Approve shifts and finalise payment with the click of a button


  • Create a free profile and share your availability and rates
  • Browse and get notified of jobs that best fit your preferences and profile
  • Understand what software a pharmacy uses, how many scripts are dispensed and if you’re required to provide pharmacotherapy, all before you accept a shift
  • Accept a shift and communicate with the pharmacy directly.
  • View your schedule in a simple calendar
  • Provide feedback to pharmacies
  • Submit invoices and get paid on time, with no more complications about invoicing, GST summaries and other sole trader frustrations

We know that by equipping both pharmacies and locums with the right technology, we’re making the locum experience simple, straightforward and empowering for everyone involved.
