Pfizer is proud to support the National Apprenticeship Programme.



Having an Apprenticeship at Pfizer means doing work that helps millions of people across the world benefit from life-changing treatment. It means working for a company that believes in equity, excellence and protecting your work-life balance. And it means working with colleagues who take your ideas seriously and support your learning and development.

If you want an Apprenticeship that matters, you’ll find it at Pfizer.


Why we think Apprenticeships are so important

You’re the future. Your ambition, talents, ideas and unique way of looking at the world will help us drive innovation in every part of our business.

We need people with a hugely diverse range of talents. Love science? Join us in our drug development labs, or engineering teams. Want to work on the business side? Get stuck into an Apprenticeship to launch a career in anything from digital marketing to paralegal services.

Our apprenticeship scheme, run in partnership with Cogent Skills, offers the best of both worlds. You’ll work with world-leaders in your field, from researchers to business gurus. You’ll study towards a nationally recognised academic or professional qualification. And, you’ll be earning a highly competitive salary.


My apprenticeship has taught me so much and has been filled with so many great opportunities! Throughout my time here, Pfizer have helped ensure my work aligns with my learning, giving me better understanding and allowing me to take it from textbook to practise. I’ve experienced working for a global company at the very beginning of my career - not many people get to say that.”
