Fuel your ambition and break new ground

We are building a new AstraZeneca in the UK that aims to become the UK's leading bio-pharmaceutical company. At the heart of this ambition is our ability to partner and collaborate with the healthcare system to create value and to continuously transform outcomes for patients in the UK. The UK is a complex healthcare system, often seen as high control, slow to adopt innovation and low-access - a progressive transformation agenda that spans business ambition, customer and patient and organisation and culture transformation sits at the heart of our ability to achieve this ambition.

We have recently announced our intention to create the most competitive and customer-centric commercial organisation in the UK, on that is aligned to customers' needs, focused on value beyond medicine, one that is flexible and able to meet customers where they are with a mix of in-person and virtual interactions. At the same time, we need to build a head-office engine that is structured, with the right capabilities, to support our commercial organisation to deliver on our value proposition in front of customers. This new organisation needs a future-fit Digital, Data, Technology and Analytics agenda with the ability to access, analyse, serve up data, create and deliver digital content and integrated customer experiences that span online/offline across owned and non-owned channels.
