Our company in a nutshell

Inspiring science. Global possibilities.

If you're inspired by the possibilities of science to make a difference and ready to discover what you can do - join us.

We are AstraZeneca. More than 59,000 of us, across six continents, working together across global boundaries to make an impact and find answers to challenges.

AstraZeneca is one of the world's most exciting bio-pharmaceutical companies. From scientists to sales, lab techs to legal, we're on a mission to turn ideas into life-changing medicines that improve patients' lives and benefit society. We need great people who share our passion for science and have the drive and determination to meet the unmet needs of patients around the world.

What we do

We discover, develop, manufacture and market small molecules and biologics focused on three key areas - oncology; cardiovascular and metabolic diseases; and respiratory, inflammation and autoimmunity.

We are one of very few innovation-driven biopharmaceutical companies to span discovery, development, manufacturing, distribution and worldwide commercialisation. Even so, we're constantly moving forward as a company - building a new kind of organisation, one that can improve the lives of 200 million patients and be a $50 billion company in 2025.

Why you should join AstraZeneca

This is your chance to get involved in a truly exciting mission. At AstraZeneca, we believe that the best way we can help patients is to push the boundaries of science. We uncover the ways diseases work and then discover new, targeted medicines that can change lives.

We commit to areas where we think we can really change the course of medicine. So working here means having the freedom to think big and work together to make the impossible a reality. And every single person who works here has a part to play in our mission.

Whatever your role, when you work with us you can be sure that your work has real purpose.
