Panda International - A job with a purpose!

There are only a few sectors that are currently in the same spotlight as the Life Sciences Sector is. Panda International offers you an opportunity to make an impact on both your own career and the lives of billions of people. Quite a statement, right?!

Panda International works with both biotech companies that are currently working non-stop in the race against time to deliver the COVID-19 vaccine, the global pharmaceutical & medical device companies, and growth companies that are working on the greatest innovations within the market!

This is my first professional working experience after my HBO. I was approached by Panda while I was traveling and didn’t really know what I wanted to do. What I did know is that I’m a commercial, entrepreneurial, opportunistic guy and the opportunity at Panda was exactly in line with this!
