Manufacturing Leadership Development Program 2020
CALLING FUTURE MANUFACTURING LEADERS
The Manufacturing Leadership Development Program (MLDP) is our flagship global manufacturing graduate program. Our simple objective is to identify, hire, and develop our future Manufacturing Leaders.
If you have the profile of being a Manufacturing Leader, we are eager to engage with you, accelerate your development, and bring greater value to our patients worldwide.
Over a 3 year rotation program we would significantly invest in your development giving you exposure and experience across our business, preparing you for a role in leadership.
You would receive coaching from senior leaders, exposure to real life manufacturing challenges and training from industry leading scientists and engineers.
In a short space of time you will be contributing to significant projects and be making key decisions that directly impact how we make pharmaceuticals and deliver them to our patients globally.
We hire a small number of MLDP members each year, and we work hard to ensure that we truly select candidates with the greatest potential to lead.
