We’re looking for Future Leaders in Regulatory affairs

Are you an analytical graduate who can help us ensure medicines are appropriately licensed before being supplied to patients? This will be your challenge within our dedicated Regulatory affairs department. It’s here that we advise on legal and scientific requirements; collect, collate and evaluate scientific data in order to confirm the quality, safety and efficacy of our drugs – while keeping track of changing global health authority requirements.

We have to meet rigorous standards as part of the registration for clinical trials and marketing approvals across the world. And you can be instrumental in this crucial process. Working with different areas of the function, other departments and colleagues from around the world, you’ll get an unparalleled insight into a critical team and the chance to provide expert guidance.

Develop your leadership potential and career

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 years, our Future Leaders graduate programme will challenge and support you to grow professionally and personally. You’ll have four stretching rotations supporting areas such as Therapeutic, Chemistry, Manufacturing and control (CMC), Labelling and the UK and Ireland business. As you experience these varied fields of expertise, you’ll learn exactly what it takes to get a drug approved.

As well as honing your technical skills, you’ll gain valuable leadership training through a combination of mentoring, classroom sessions and on-the-job training.

Your 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, with a solid foundation for a variety of careers within the pharmaceutical industry. There’s no limit to how far you can go with us – it’s up to you to prove yourself.

What can you expect?

You’ll have the opportunity to:

  • learn about drug development and registration on a tailored development programme
  • enable medicines to reach patients worldwide
  • learn to manage projects and prioritise tasks
  • gain broad experience across the field of Regulatory Affairs
  • develop your business skills and understanding of our industry
  • build your knowledge of the drug development process, as well as regulatory agency guidelines and expectations
  • learn about the principles of regulatory agency review processes

What are the requirements?

You'll need:

  • to be a motivated and proactive graduate 
  • a gift for building strong relationships with key stakeholders
  • the ability to adapt to change
  • an analytical mind and an eye for detail
  • excellent communication skills
  • a passion for science
