Our Madrid headquarters is home to the many dedicated people that keep our country-wide operations running smoothly – HR, BU’s (Respiratory, Oncology & CVRM) Communications, Compliance, Legal, Finance & IT, Corporate Affairs, Market Access, Sales, AZ Foundation and Medical.

There are plenty of open work spaces to promote cross-functional working and collaboration, plus a wealth of on-site amenities that help to make us an award-winning place to work.

We also inspire teamwork and progression through these facility perks and help you to get the most out of your experience here.


In 2015, we opened a new respiratory medicine R&D and Global Marketing centre in Barcelona.

What we offer

We’re proud to be a company that lives according to its values, always placing people first. Our diverse leadership is the main driving force behind our all-encompassing people approach and allows us to have a strong science focus, while keeping a patient-centric attitude. As a part of this way of working, we offer everything you need to succeed professionally – and beyond.

A great place to work

We’re passionate about being a Great Place to Work and our policies and procedures are designed with this in mind. It’s thanks to this commitment to our people that 84% of our employees would recommend us. Together we make it an inspiring place to be.

Award winning

As a company, we lead by example and set the benchmark for our competitors too. We’ve received many important awards in Spain, including the Top Employer Spain certificate, EFR certification which distinguishes our company as a Family Responsible Business, and we occupy the third place in the top 50 Best Places to Work list compiled by Forbes Spain.

Inclusive environment

We lead the way in terms of inclusion and diversity. As a result, there is no salary gap in our company and the number of women employees has increased four percent over the past three years, during which we have made all positions fully accessible.

Work-life balance

Your wellbeing means a lot to us. So we promote time and work flexibility to ensure you achieve the right work-life balance. We’re there for you when you need it most with an unpaid leave policy to attend to different personal situations, as well as several holiday calendars, including reduced-hours timetables.

The environment

As a company we’re focused on improvement. That goes for the world around us too. We maintain a firm commitment towards the environment, and have reduced our carbon footprint by over 9,000 kg of CO2 over the last two years, through measures like reusing obsolete IT equipment and fitting lights with movement sensors. 

Moreover, we lead the European project EUGoGreen, which aims to introduce a wider range of environmentally-friendly options in our European fleet of corporate vehicles.


As well as the flexible benefits offered globally, in Spain we have some fantastic additional benefits to give you that extra support. These include a retirement plan, long service award, health and travel insurance.
