Octapharma Corporate Trainee Program

Are you ready to make a difference?

At Octapharma, we save human lives every day. Would you like to work in a fast-growing international group that´s on a mission to create truly life-saving medicines? Are you interested in traveling, developing your professional career, and learning from diverse cultures? Are you an ambitious, goal-oriented person who would thrive in a fast-paced global trainee program? If you nodded "yes" to the above, please send us your CV or resume.

The Octapharma Corporate Trainee Program is designed to successfully promote talented students to key positions to support this growth.

The chosen candidates will join a team of international trainees from around the world on an exciting 18-month-long challenge. During this period, you will have a unique opportunity to put your theoretical knowledge to practical use in a rewarding educational program that gives you exposure to all relevant parts of our company. Because the program is global in scope, it means that parts of the training will be held at our subsidiaries or production facilities abroad. However, the selected trainees will mainly be based at our local head offices.

From day one, we offer a unique opportunity for personal growth and development as well as a way to build your network within the group. Our program offers exciting and challenging opportunities and responsibilities that will make you have to stretch and develop to reach your potential. Our aim is that you can play a key role in the future development of our company – either locally or abroad. To support you along the way, you will be assigned a mentor from our team of managers.

Pharmaceutical Production & Engineering
Combined with a general overview of our company, this program offers in-depth training and hands-on experience in all aspects of protein-based pharmaceutical production. In this program, you will primarily work at our production departments; Pharmaceutical Production and Biopharmaceutical Production. You will also work at the production-related departments such as Operational Support, our Technical Engineering Unit and the Quality Unit. Furthermore, the program offers you insight to corporate functions as well as support functions.

Since the program is international, you need advanced language skills: fluency in English as well as the local language: French, German or Swedish. A third language is also required: French or German.

Your application should consist of:
1. Your CV
2. A motivational letter
3. Copies of your school grades and degree certificates

The recruitment process will entail a number of selection steps, culminating in Trainee Day, our Assessment Center.

We are looking for talented individuals who have recently graduated from the University and who have the capacity, drive and confidence to be potential key players in Octapharma. The ideal candidate should have a high capacity, be open to new experiences, flexible enough to cope with a changing work environment and yet structured enough to work independently. Good networking skills and a positive attitude will help you to succeed throughout the many exciting challenges that come with this program.

Candidates to the Production & Engineering Program should have a Degree of Master of Science (M Sc) in Engineering with a major in chemistry, microbiology, biotechnology, mechanics, supply chain & logistics or an equivalent subject.

Since the program is international, you need advanced language skills: fluency in English as well as in Swedish. A third language is also required: French or German. Additional language skills in Spanish or Russian are beneficial.
