job description.

Are you interested in the development of pharmaceuticals and curious about what it is like to work at AstraZeneca? Do you have a summer break and would like to learn new skills in an exciting environment? Welcome with your application for Holiday Work at AstraZeneca in Gothenburg!
At AstraZeneca, all of our employees make a difference to patients’ lives every day. We operate in more than 100 countries around the world and are one of Sweden’s most important export companies.
With more than 2,400 employees from 50 countries, the vibrant Gothenburg site helps to support the entire life-cycle of AstraZeneca medicines, from drug discovery and clinical trials, to global commercialization and product maintenance. Gothenburg is one of AstraZeneca’s three strategic, global R&D centers, alongside Cambridge and Gaithersburg, and plays a central role in our mission to deliver life-changing medicines to patients.


Your placement will depend on your previous experience, education and what department you will work in. The holiday work experience will provide you with valuable insight into working in an international company within the biopharmaceutical industry. 
Continuing COVID-19 restrictions mean we are unable to accommodate as many Holiday Workers at AstraZeneca sites as we usually do and, as a result, we have reduced the amount of available Holiday Worker assignments this year.
Please note that we have three different advertisements for holiday work at AstraZeneca this year, within IT/technology, Life Science and administrative/facility. Please apply only to the advertisement that suits your qualifications best.


• You are currently a University student within IT, e.g. data science, computer science, software engineering etc.
• You have knowledge in programming, preferably Java, Python, R or similar.
• You have a genuine interest and curiosity to learn new things and would like to gain insight in working in a large international company.
