Main Responsibilities

Our Graduate scheme is a 20-month fixed-term rotational programme across key departments in our commercial business and has been specially designed to create our future leaders.  As a Graduate Trainee, you will be spending time with teams from all over our business – marketing, sales, supply chain to name but a few – getting to understand how Teva UK operates. You will be expected to learn on the job and accumulate as much experience and practical knowledge as possible in the various departments you will be seconded to, working closely with managers and heads of functions and completing project work or assisting with day-to-day responsibilities.

Our scheme is all about empowering and enabling our graduates to become key contributors to the company. We have developed tailored plans to help you adjust and be a strong contributor in the various secondments across the business as well as providing you with challenges and opportunities to grow and develop. You will be supported by your assigned department line manager, and will have a ‘buddy’ to support and guide you through each secondment. As part of your development, you will attend development workshops and receive coaching support to monitor your performance and help you achieve your goals.

A key requirement for the Graduate scheme is the flexibility to travel across to our various sites, some of which you may be based at for a period of 3 - 4 months.
