AstraZeneca

Early careers at AstraZeneca

There are many options available to young people once they have finished Year 11 at school. In this section, we aim to outline considerations for young people and provide links to other resources to help you to understand the opportunities that a modern apprenticeship can provide.

Many school leavers have no idea what career they would like, so don’t despair if your child or student is in this situation. Encourage them to research all of the early careers opportunities and don’t assume university is the only way. There are multiple pathways your child or student could take to continue their learning and open that door to employers for an exciting career.
Talk through these options with them and listen to what they have to say about their preferences, and what they are thinking. Any support you can offer to them will be invaluable (even if it doesn’t appear so at the time of the discussion!), but do consider whether you should be making all of the effort for them. Employers look for drive - if you do the work, your child will not be able to demonstrate this convincingly.

Kim Hardman, UK Apprentice Programme Manager, AstraZeneca

Why choose AstraZeneca?

Starting your career with us means following the science, boldly disrupting norms and supporting one another in shaping the future. Collaborate with leaders and teams across a wide range of disciplines and explore your passions. Discover your career purpose with us. And build strong bonds that will last a lifetime.

Working across our vital missions, you’ll deliver impact at the heart of national security, all within a supportive and inclusive environment that allows everyone to thrive.

The Role
Joining us as a Software Engineering Apprentice, you’ll have the opportunity to learn from software delivery teams that will offer you a unique insight into the work of the intelligence agencies.

We don’t expect you to know everything – in fact, we’re looking for people who want to learn. But you should have a genuine interest in programming, problem solving or technology. You’ll also need (or expect to have by September 2022) 72 UCAS points, and a minimum GCSE grade 4/C in English Language and maths – or equivalent functional skills (level 2).
