For each open role at PharmaLex we have carefully analyzed and designed the profile requirements, from the most technical aspects of the role, to the personal competencies and values which will be thoroughly assessed during the selection process.

We would like to share with you what the candidate journey looks like within PharmaLex and give you some tips that might be helpful when applying:

  1. Before applying… Research!

Information is very powerful. Preparing your application beforehand is fundamental. Go through our website, learn about our Business Units, our different affiliates, our global footprint, our values etc.

  1. Prepare your application

Get as much information as you can about the particular role, by reading the job advert carefully and making sure to highlight your relevant experience relating to the role you are applying for in your CV.

Include a cover letter presenting yourself along with your CV. This will help the Talent Acquisition expert to have a better understanding of your profile and professional experience, career aspirations and expectations.

If you are applying for a job in a country where English is not the main spoken language, please provide your CV and cover letter in English, as this is our corporate language.
