Are you interested in a graduate career where you can help people do more, feel better and live longer?
The Commercial teams in our Pharmaceuticals business are constantly looking to build a better understanding of our patients and to find new ways to make our life changing products accessible to more people, regardless of where they live or what they can afford to pay.
We’re looking for commercially savvy graduates who are willing to experience a series of stretching rotations across multiple business areas, including Sales and Marketing. As you work with different Commercial teams you’ll develop a range of essential business skills, whilst also building a deep understanding of the Pharmaceuticals industry.
Develop your career
You will embark on a truly immersive three-year rotational programme that will enable you to gain a broad and fascinating insight into our Pharmaceuticals business. It will also challenge and support you to grow personally and professionally.
Each of your three rotations will be spent in a different Commercial team within your local business so you’ll quickly build up a wide range of skills and experiences.
In the sales rotation, you’ll likely work in a customer-facing role. This will give you invaluable first-hand experience of working out in the field, interacting closely with Healthcare Professionals and clinics to share important information with them about our products and to deliver excellent customer service. If you strive for targets, take responsibility and are great at building relationships, you’ll thrive in our talented sales team.
You’ll also likely work in a brand or customer marketing rotation. During this time you might look at brand activity plans or help to deliver globally aligned marketing campaigns for different customer groups. You’ll also need to gather insights into customer and patient preferences and understand which factors influence overall sales. All this calls for strong analytical skills, an ability to work cross-functionally and a good understanding of our patients.
Your third rotation will help you to further develop your understanding of our Commercial organisation and will really test your business acumen and expertise. This rotation might be in a range of different areas, including project management, data analytics or commercial excellence.
Tailored training – and great career progression
We’ll tailor your training and development to suit your talents and ambition, as well as our business needs, setting you up for success in your chosen niche. After you complete our Future Leaders programme, you’ll have the skills to become a leader of the future. It all begins with a permanent role in Pharmaceuticals, which could be in sales, commercial excellence or even multi-channel marketing. There’s no limit to how far you can go with us – it’s up to you to prove yourself.
You’ll be excited by the thought of:
building your scientific knowledge, business sense and customer relationship skills on a tailored development programme
representing our products to healthcare professionals
