Our sites


With 250 hard-working people in our Moscow head office, situated in the main business district in “Moscow City”, we deliver results across all our functions – everything from HR and Commercial to Clinical Research and Business Development. The collaborative nature here is both down to the connected and passionate drive of our people, as well as the modern office environment we offer. 

With dedicated social zones, amphitheatre space (which is also used for town hall meetings), coffee points, the city’s biggest Encore Fitness Centre, and even a ballroom, there are many places to bring out the best in one another and spark great ideas. Plus, with our offices situated on the 30th floor of the 49-storey OKO Tower, the views alone are enough to inspire your creative thinking.

AstraZeneca in Russia


Our Kaluga production facility, based in the Vorsino Industrial Park, is a centre of excellence for quality and manufacturing. Here, we produce medicines for the whole of Russia, ensuring that we meet the needs of patients across the region. 

We have a strong and respected reputation, with our site obtaining the ‘Certificate of Trust’ from Kaluga Region State Labour Inspection in 2017. This is proven in the way that our teams work together and share their achievements. It’s also proven in the way that we look after our people, offering them a place where they can feel at home. From relaxing lounge zones and a small gym to our canteen, this is an office where people can get to know each other, while enjoying thrilling work every day.

Globally, we offer internal learning opportunities, structured training and flexible benefits chosen by you. And in Russia, we take the standard work-life balance options to a whole new level.

As well as being a 2019 Top Employer for our ‘people-first’ approach, we’re recognised as a leading company by several other awards bodies for our methods in business and beyond. In 2016, we won the Randstad Award for ‘most attractive employer in the pharmaceutical industry’. In 2018, we were awarded for our commitment to ‘safety and working conditions’ by WOW! HRAwards 2018. And, for the eighth year running, we’ve been recognised as a ‘dream employer’ in the annual award survey of pharmaceutical industry employees.


Here, collaboration is a big part of our culture, both professionally and socially. With our Workplace platform – operated by Facebook – we’re able to bring together colleagues in Russia and Eurasia through specific groups, such as project-based forums and business function groups. And, when it comes to social collaboration, we hold annual events, weekly activities and celebrations. We even encourage colleagues to enjoy flexible hours, with the working day starting between 8am and 10am and finishing between 5pm and 7pm.

We do good

As a global company whose purpose is to help people, it’s in our nature to find ways of doing good for the world. As a part of this, we do a lot for charity. For example, our partnership with the Victoria Children Charity Foundation enables us to support marginalised adolescents in orphanages – to date, we’ve encouraged around 310 orphans to lead a healthy lifestyle. As well as this, we’ve donated to ‘Gift of Life’ to help sick children and young adults whose families can’t afford treatment for life-threatening illnesses. With us, you can do your part and help us to do good.
