About AstraZeneca

AstraZeneca is a global biopharmaceutical business that pushes the boundaries of science to deliver life-changing medicines. An agile and purposeful company that is investing over $4bn in R&D each year to pursue discoveries beyond imagination. An organisation that is active in over 100 countries, has a growing presence in emerging markets, and brings together 59,000 people in a unique spirit of innovation and collaboration.

We discover, develop, manufacture and market small molecules and biologics focused on three key areas – oncology; cardiovascular and metabolic diseases; and respiratory, inflammation and autoimmunity. Ensuring these innovative medicines reach patients across the Globe is changing the way we think about launch and supply, driving change across our manufacturing sites and supply network.

They take real responsibility from day one, and throughout their programme they have the opportunity to contribute to ground-breaking projects and gain an extensive understanding of the global pharmaceutical industry.
