About the programme
The Quality function in AstraZeneca tests the products we make and then works with Manufacturing to release the products to the market.
Our Quality apprenticeships offer a variety of learning opportunities gaining useable skills whilst working closely alongside industry experts and professionals. To truly unlock opportunity in today’s world, you need the combination of education and hands-on, practical experience that employers are looking for. Our apprenticeships offer just that.
We offer two types of Quality apprenticeships, one within Quality Assurance which has a practical emphasis on drug sampling, drug archiving and package components testing, whilst the other as a Quality Practitioner focuses on assuring the quality of safety and efficacy of our pharmaceutical products.
How does the programme work?
The roles within Quality range from 18 months to 3 years. Please see individual job advertisements for more information. Here, you’ll learn and earn in a supportive team, guided by expert managers, mentors and buddies who will help you develop the skills you seek and push and encourage you to get the most out of your time with us.
