What we offer
Wherever you find yourself working in Japan, we appreciate the importance of recognising individual needs and supporting work-life balance. Appropriate personnel systems and schemes are continually refined and enhanced to ensure we’re giving our people the best choices we possibly can.
Life in balance
We believe in the energy that happy and healthy employees bring to our business. That’s why we have a range of initiatives designed to help meet the increasingly flexible demands of the modern world. This includes generous maternity and parental leave.
Whether you’re driven by deeper studies in a certain field or wish to broaden your competency in different areas, we encourage self-improvement through a challenging working and learning environment. Here, you’ll follow your own career path and be entitled to apply for any vacancies locally and globally at AstraZeneca after a year’s service. We want you to grow personally as well as professionally. There are location specific workplace groups, both work related and socially, where you can connect with other people in Japan to share knowledge and stretch your skills. We also help new graduates settle in with a freshman follow up programme.
Inclusion and diversity
Here, everyone is different, that’s our strength. We celebrate and promote inclusion and diversity (I&D) in everything we do. We run a number of I&D initiatives and seminars which are open to all employees. We also have an employee resource group “Women's Leadership Initiative (WLI)” launched in 2014. Since then, we have offered projects aimed at finding self-help solutions and gaining confidence in demonstrating leadership, and leadership/career development related seminars. It is run by volunteer employees and everyone is welcome to join events or join as a committee member.
Reaching your full potential inside and outside of work is all about striking a balance. That’s why our flexible and comprehensive benefits package exists – with flexible work arrangements and a range of benefits to suit you. As well as a great work-life balance, you’ll enjoy working with the most cutting-edge technologies, great on-site amenities and all the support and encouragement you need to succeed.
