Are you a commercially sharp graduate who wants to help people do more, feel better, live longer? You can work towards this goal as part of our Commercial management team, based in Pharmaceuticals.

We’re working to make our products accessible to more people, no matter where they live in the world or what they can afford to pay. Our commercial teams play a big part in this by understanding our patients, consumers and customers, and developing innovative strategies. Through a series of challenging rotations you’ll develop a range of essential business skills, while building a deep understanding of the healthcare field.

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 to three years, our Future Leaders graduate programme will challenge and support you to grow professionally and personally. You’ll have three to four stretching rotations that will give you a breath of experience across the core areas of the commercial business. These rotations cover sales, marketing and a third area which could be outside of commercial functions or Pharmaceuticals. This way, you gain a broad and fascinating insight into the entire business.

As you improve your commercial management skills, you’ll build your leadership potential too through a combination of mentoring, classroom sessions and on-the-job training.

• You will learn how to seize opportunities and develop them through gathering insights and strategic planning
• You will also gain invaluable networking opportunities, both with senior leaders and with your peers

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
• delivering projects in commercial functions such as sales, marketing operations or analytics
