About the programme

Project Management apprenticeships are designed to provide apprentices with a broad knowledge of operational and strategic project management processes and techniques needed across our business. The roles have responsibility for project delivery, working with team members and stakeholders ensuring that the project is delivered in line with business requirements. Development in project management techniques to execute projects aligned to strategic objectives in AstraZeneca will be provided, together with support to develop management responsibilities, including project budgeting capabilities and people development. Projects within AstraZeneca could span across multiple different business functions so you will be supported to develop strong communication skills, to tailor your approach and knowledge accordingly.
