We’re looking for Future Leaders in Manufacturing operations
Are you a graduate with the talent and adaptability to help us get vaccines to people in 90% of the world’s countries?
If so, you could be part of our highly scientific Manufacturing operations and Quality function. This is where we manufacture, formulate, fill, pack, control, release and deliver vaccines safely a process that takes 15 to 18 months and uses cutting-
edge technology. It’s a challenge that touches on four very different activities : manufacturing operations, technical services, quality and supply chain management.
Different challenges arise at every stage, so every working day is different. These challenges might include transporting delicate biological materials that need special handling, overseeing quality throughout the manufacturing process, or managing a complex supply chain to ensure that vaccines are received exactly when they’re needed.
Develop your leadership potential on our Future Leaders graduate programme
If you’re a graduate with the talent and ambition to lead others, we’ll help you develop the expertise to become one of our Future Leaders.
Over two years, our Future Leaders graduate programme will challenge and support you to grow professionally and personally.
You’ll have three stretching rotations that will give you an insightful experience into the manufacturing side of our vaccines business.
They start with a one-year rotation on the shop floor at the centre of our operations activities, either in Production or Quality Control.
This will be followed by a six-month rotation in Quality or Production (depending on your first rotation) and a further six months in technical functions or Supply chain management.
One of these rotations will be based abroad. Through these placements, you’ll develop your expertise in production, quality and technical services or supply chain management, while broadening your global business perspective.
What will you do?
The Program is tailored to enable you to develop your knowledge and experience while broadening your global business perspectives.
During the Program you will experience 3 rotations : one on the shop floor at the heart of our operations activities (Production or Quality Control) and the other two in Quality, Supply Chain or other Global Industrial Operations functions.
As a truly global organisation, we offer the opportunity to gain international experience through one rotation abroad. Your landing position, at the end of the program, will be within your home country.
