About Pfizer

Working together for our nation’s health Pfizer has a rich heritage of working in the UK. Over the past sixty years, we have discovered and developed medicines which have improved and saved the lives of millions of people across the UK and around the world. The UK has a world leading science base and is an important place for us to conduct research and development, working in collaboration with scientists, academia, clinicians and other companies.

Every year in the UK, we recruit undergraduate degree students onto our 12 month Industrial Trainee Placement Scheme. The scheme provides paid placements across all the business units within Pfizer UK including our commercial business and Research & Development.

Throughout your placement, you will contribute to live departmental projects and be given real responsibility.
It's a fantastic opportunity to gain an insight into how one of the world's leading innovative biopharmaceutical companies operates, while advancing your own academic knowledge and technical skills.

The placements are based across two of our UK sites:

Walton Oaks, Surrey is home to our commercial headquarters in the UK. Colleagues here work with UK stakeholders including the NHS, clinicians, regulators, Government and policy makers, and patient groups to support the UK healthcare system and help ensure our medicines reach the clinicians and patients who need them.

For more than 60 years our scientists, regulatory professionals and business experts have played a role in the discovery and development of many of Pfizer’s most important medicines across a range of therapeutic areas. Today we are developing medicines for clinical trials in disease areas including cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s.

Departments hiring Industrial Trainees include, Research & Development, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Commercial, Finance & Procurement, Marketing, Human Resources and Worldwide Safety and Regulatory.
