How to Apply

The recruitment campaign for placements starting in the 2015-2016 academic year is now open, and the closing date for applications is 31st October 2014.

The application form, individual placement job descriptions and locations, and instructions on how to apply can all be found here.

Applications must be submitted on-line via the Pfizer Jobs Portal, and unfortunately due to the number of applications we are not able to consider any received after the closing date.

Please note this scheme is for 12 months only and is open to students who have an industrial training placement year as part of their degree course or have taken a year out of their degree to do this with the support of their university.

We will not accept applications from post graduates or from students looking for a placement of less than 12 months.

Interviews will take place throughout November and early December where you will be invited to visit the site where your placement is based to see our facilities, meet members of the department and discuss the placement in more detail.
