Undergraduate placements

Every year in the UK, we recruit undergraduate degree students onto our 12 month Undergraduate Placement Scheme.


The scheme provides paid placements across all the business units within Pfizer UK, including our commercial business and Research & Development.

Throughout your placement, you will contribute to live departmental projects and be given real responsibility.

It's a fantastic opportunity to gain an insight into how one of the world's leading innovative biopharmaceutical companies operates, while advancing your own academic knowledge and technical skills.

The placements are available at three of our sites; Sandwich in Kent, Hurley in Berkshire and Tadworth in Surrey.

Our sites have state of the art modern facilities, which can include (depending on location) a staff restaurant, coffee shop, gym, free on-site parking and a Pfizer bus service from surrounding towns.

What's more, you'll enjoy an industry competitive salary, 25.5 days holiday, as well as a wide range of other benefits.
