Our Early Talent Programmes offer huge variety when it comes to your learning and potential for growth. Here, you’ll have an abundance of opportunities to pursue your areas of interest as well as take on new experiences to broaden your skillset. Whether rotating through functions or exploring different facets of your specialism, you’ll work cross-functionally with experts of all levels.
Bringing limitless opportunities to learn, grow, and develop your strengths in different ways.
Working within Human Resources, you may not feel you're at the frontline of research, but your role in changing patients' lives is so important. We truly value Early Talent – their thoughts, ideas and contributions. So throughout the programme, you’ll be encouraged and inspired to speak up, have a voice and make an impact. To be curious, courageous and open-minded – willing and eager to learn, ask questions, and take on new challenges in a fastpaced environment.
Our apprenticeship programme is designed to give you a broad understanding of our HR function alongside being involved in a variety of critical activities and projects we are delivering to the business.
