The Alliance Graduate Development Program is a 2-year rotational development opportunity designed for university graduates looking to build a solid foundation for launching their careers in Scientific Affairs with a leading International Healthcare business.

Our Program

‘’Since joining Alliance I have valued working on cross functional projects and gaining exposure to various departments within Scientific Affairs and the wider business. Everyone has been friendly and welcoming, and I am excited to continue to develop my knowledge and skills within Scientific Affairs as I move through the rotations.’’ Kathryn, Graduate 2023

The Graduate Program is offered as a permanent contract, providing rotations across our core Scientific Affairs functions, and is expected to include a rotation in one of our International Affiliates.

Working alongside a high performing team, you will gain insights into the entire Scientific Affairs function, developing your understanding through a wide variety of responsibilities and projects.

Your rotations will typically include assignments in:

  • Quality Function and Regulatory Affairs
  • Development, Technical and Product Innovation
  • Pharmacovigilance and Medical Information
  • Medical Affairs

You will also gain experience in core business functional areas such as Supply Chain, Commercial and Finance to broaden your business understanding.

The program is designed to build your technical skills but also your capabilities in leading and influencing others.  With mentoring form our leaders, we give you the skills and confidence so that at the end of the program you can successfully continue your career in the best direction with us.

Why join Alliance?

We are an alliance of people, brands and partners working together. One team: achieving more for patients, healthcare providers and partners.
