What the astrazeneca APPRENTICES say
“Joining AstraZeneca as a research and development supply chain apprentice has been a fantastic experience. I have been involved in global projects, working with others from across the world to help deliver clinical trial medicines to patients on time, which is incredibly rewarding.
Each day provides new challenges allowing me to develop my skills and knowledge of the industry.”
JASON CAPPER R&D SUPPLY CHAIN APPRENTICE
“Before I started as an IT apprentice at AstraZeneca, I had been a stay home mum raising my two beautiful children. As my children got older I started looking for an opportunity to get back into the workforce and start a career in IT and was not aware such possibilities existed until I heard about this amazing opportunity.
The benefits of apprentice programme are greater than I could have dreamed of. Not only will I gain a Digital and Technology Solutions degree (fully funded) but also gain a full 4 years of work experience at the same time.
We are given the opportunity to do 3 8-month rotations across different areas within IT and work a full year in an area of our choice at the end. This gives us great exposure across a number of different IT disciplines and helps to make sure we make the right choice about our future career.”
