Manufacturing Leadership Development Program 2020


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.

To help assess if you fit the profile here are some questions to ask yourself

  • Does the thought of feeling overwhelmed or feel like you’re in over your head’ excite you?
  • Are you the type of person to change carefully planned actions quickly as needed for results?
  • Is failure a part of your learning process?
  • Does the challenge of changing positions, or even living arrangements, just when you are getting comfortable excite you?
  • Are you willing to go above and beyond your normal job duties for the team to get the job done?
  • If the answer is YES to all of these questions, then keep on reading!

    The Manufacturing Leadership Development Program has two primary goals :

  • Provide candidates who have master’s degree level in the required fields listed below with a broad perspective of the core manufacturing functions of our pharmaceutical, biological, animal health and vaccine products.

  • The MLDP enables successful candidates to experience (3) rotations over a three year period with each rotation lasting (1) year.

    Employees are assigned to rotations based on business needs and aligned to develop critical experiences. In addition to their assignments, employees receive mentoring from peers and senior leaders during their assignment.

    Rotation members should expect to work at different domestic or international sites during their tenure in the program and should have flexibility to move where assigned to meet business needs.

    Within the rotation, some domestic and international travel may be required. International rotation assignments or travel are not guaranteed.
