CALLING FUTURE MANUFACTURING LEADERS
The Manufacturing Leadership Development Program (MLDP) is our flagship global manufacturing graduate program. Our simple goal is to identify, hire, and develop our future Manufacturing Leaders. If you have the profile of being a Leader in our Company, we are eager to engage with you, accelerate your development, and bring greater value to our patients worldwide.
Over the 3-year rotation program we would significantly invest in your development giving you exposure across our business, preparing you for a role in leadership. You will receive coaching from senior leaders, exposure to real life manufacturing challenges and training from industry leading scientists and engineers. You will be contributing to significant projects and be making key decisions that directly impact how we make pharmaceuticals products and deliver them to our patients globally.
