Clinical Supply Program Lead

Clinical Supply Program Lead


At AstraZeneca we turn ideas into life changing medicines and strive to continuously meet the unmet needs of patients worldwide. Working here means being entrepreneurial, thinking big and working together to make the impossible a reality. If you are swift to action, confident to lead, willing to collaborate, and curious about what science can do, then you’re our kind of person.

Pharmaceutical Technology and Development (PT&D) is the bridge which turns brilliant science into actual medicines that help millions of people. We work across the entire value chain, designing and delivering active ingredients, formulations and devices required to support new medicines – from supplies for use in clinical trials to developing the technology to ensure drugs can be scaled up for commercial manufacture.

Are you a strong project leader? Do you have experience in any of the following areas: supply chain, clinic or pharmaceutical development? If so, this could be the next step in your career!
Our global Clinical Program Supply Chain team is growing, and we are now looking for a Clinical Supply Program Lead to join our team in Gothenburg. Maybe you are the one?

As a Clinical Supply Program Lead (CSPL) you will manage and have responsibility for end to end supply to our clinical studies. These supply chains are complex with typically high variability in demand, long lead times, technical complexity, regulatory constraints and high cost of goods. Our customer expectations are high with a focus on 100% availability of medicine to patients, speed to deliver and at a minimal cost. This complexity is likely to increase, and customer demands will remain high.

The CSPL works in collaboration with customer functions to influence and manage demand and is responsible for all Clinical Manufacturing and Supply project deliverables to the business through leadership of the Supply Chain Team.
