How We Hire

COVID-19: Virtual hiring process & our new hybrid working model

We are delighted that you are considering being our next Inventor! We are really looking forward to getting to know you during your upcoming interview and selection process. 

Given the current situation, we want to make sure we look after you, your health and wellbeing, and that of our employees. During this time, much of our selection process will be “virtual”, so we will probably meet you through the phone and webcam over the coming days and weeks. We know many of you will have family responsibilities and children at home, so if we get to “meet” your children on webcam, we’ll be happy to say “hello”. You may meet some of ours too!
 
If you do start in a new role with us, we may try to support you through a “virtual onboarding”. This will help you get up to speed successfully, introduce you to your manager and your new team. Your manager will be key to your onboarding – and all of us are ready to welcome you as our newest “Inventor”. While many of us are currently working remotely, there are some roles in our company where we still need employees to be on site, particularly if you will be working at one of our manufacturing sites where we are working hard to ensure a supply of critical medicines to our patients. Rest assured we are taking all possible measures to protect our employees, and we would support you in the same way. 
 
Our Talent Acquisition Advisors are available throughout the interview process to guide and support you, so please get in touch if you have any questions. 

For positions located in the United States and Puerto Rico – Subject to applicable law, all new hires (including internal transfers) must demonstrate that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or that they qualify for a medical or religious exemption to this vaccination requirement. New hires (including internal transfers) to a position that, as determined by the Company, requires routine collaboration with external stakeholders (such as roles in health services or customer-facing commercial or research-based roles) (“Customer-Facing Role”) who are not vaccinated must qualify for a medical or religious exemption and be in a position that the Company determines can accommodate unvaccinated employees without causing an undue burden to business operations. If, following dialog with the candidate as appropriate, it is determined that the candidate either a) does not qualify for a religious or medical exemption or, b) for candidates applying for Customer-Facing roles, it is determined that allowing the candidate to work without vaccination would cause an undue burden to the Company, the candidate will be ineligible for hire or transfer, or any offer of employment or transfer (if applicable) will be revoked. Please note that notwithstanding the approval of any reasonable accommodation, the Company reserves the right to monitor, modify, or revoke any such accommodation if it is determined, following dialog with the employee, that the accommodation is no longer effective or results in an undue burden to the Company.
