Let the students speak for themselves:


Pfizer has been a fantastic experience working on a project which perfectly fitted in my university cursus. The high degree of responsibility and freedom I had correlated with the very supportive spirit of my colleagues made my year in Pfizer a thrilling experience. I considerably increased my technical skills and soft skills. I also gained in self-confidence thanks to the many opportunities to present my work and the trust of my supervisors. I worked with highly skilled chemist and engineers promoting open, innovating and supporting culture."

I have thoroughly enjoyed my placement year at Pfizer; I was a member of the HR Operations team. I was given real responsibility from the start with the opportunity to lead my own projects as well as support my team with their own projects. What I love about working in Pfizer HR is that no day is the same! The workload is hugely variable and as a result has given me a wide range of experience and skills. I would definitely recommend Pfizer to any undergraduate students currently looking for a placement year; Pfizer is a fantastic company to work for."

I have had an invaluable experience working for Pfizer in the Consulting and Execution Team during my placement year and have learnt more than I ever could have ever anticipated; learnings that I will take forward into my final year studying Business Management at Brighton University and into my future career. The company has such a welcoming culture and I was made to feel like a vital part of the organisation from start to finish. My expectations were surpassed and I was made to feel valued throughout with extensive responsibility and exposure to senior clients. Working at Pfizer has convinced me this is the company at which I see myself in future and that the Pharmaceutical Industry is where I belong."
