At AstraZeneca, we put patients first and strive to meet their unmet needs 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.

Finance at AstraZeneca has a clear vision to drive growth through innovation by being trusted partners who add value through connection and innovation in support of the company’s purpose and ambition:

  • We’re trusted partners: we are more than an enabling function or service provider, we’re a true and trusted partner who works with the business to unlock value for our stakeholders and patients.

  • We’re connecting: we connect with each other across geographies – breaking down silos and acting as one team. Our leaders are connected to our people. We leverage ideas, systems and data, connect knowledge and create actionable insights and predictions.

  • We’re innovating: we identify new opportunities to introduce, adopt or modify effective ideas to solve problems. We find solutions to both existing challenges and anticipated changing needs. We use innovation to simplify, to make a bigger impact and to give us a competitive advantage.

  • We’re adding value: We know what it takes to deliver value, a laser focus on our strategic priorities and key enablers.

The Finance Architecture, Change and Transformation (FACT) has an important part to play in delivering this vision through leading the integration and effective management of Finance processes, information, organisation, and technology.

Looking forward to our vision for 2025, this role is one of a number of permanent and fixed term opportunities to play an important part in building and delivering the strategy for Finance, including our move to the next generation of SAP.

If you can bring ideas and fresh thinking to the table, embrace the thought of taking ownership of the Finance vision, and can imagine yourself playing a key part in making it a reality, then we want to hear from you.
