To fully realize Pfizer’s purpose – Breakthroughs that change patients’ lives – we have established a clear set of expectations regarding “what” we need to achieve for patients and “how” we will go about achieving those goals. The “how” is represented by four simple, powerful values – courage, excellence, equity and joy – that define our company and our culture.
Breakthroughs start by challenging convention -- especially in the face of uncertainty or adversity.
We can only change patients' lives when we perform at our best together.
Every person deserves to be seen, heard, and cared for.
We give ourselves to our work and it also gives to us.
Starting here is just the beginning. We have redefined growth and development at Pfizer to ensure that everyone can have the opportunity to follow the path to their dream career. Each aspiration is unique and so is each experience. Colleagues have different options, whether that is growing to be the best in your role, grow your expertise in your current function and try a next experience, expanding your experience outside of your current function and grow your breadth of knowledge through a cross functional experience or finally take on additional responsibility, leadership, and challenge to grow upwards.
We prioritise growth
We are putting colleagues on the center, unleashing their potential and asking them to think deeply and transparently about their aspirations and connecting them to diverse opportunities.
We’ll foster your learning and encourage your development. We’ll listen to your aspirations and provide with diverse experiences like job-rotation assignments, experiential action projects and short-term project roles. Grow at Pfizer means collecting experiences to pursue your aspirations.
We actively encourage you to have growth conversations with your manager. Through Growth Conversations, you connect with your manager to work toward your growth aspirations and align on the next growth experience needed to propel you forward toward your aspiration and deliver on our purpose.

Diversity is just as crucial to building a successful business as it is to building a vibrant culture. We realize that means not just attracting the best and brightest talent, but also ensuring that our colleagues can thrive in an environment where we champion diversity, equity and inclusion every single day, all around the world.

Prepare for interview
All Jobs posted including secondments more than 90 days, can be found via Workday. CDI open positions can also be found in this website, along with open positions in Pfizer Careers
Remember, your CV or Resume is the first exposure a Recruiter and a Hiring Manager will have to your work experience. Spend some time to make it shine! We want you to have everything settled up for success! Remember, details do make a difference!
Competency-based interviewing is driven by the philosophy that past performance predicts future performance. Since performance is a result of how we behave, we can predict a candidate's future performance by probing into, or assessing, past behaviors. The interviewer will be asking you for specific examples of your past behavior so that you may demonstrate evidence of your potential for success in the role. All candidates applying for the same role will be asked similar questions. Questions often begin with "Tell me about a time when…" or "Give me an example of…". For some questions the interviewer will ask you, it might be a follow up, so the Hiring Manager collects all the necessary information.
Be yourself - your personality is your biggest weapon.
Don't be afraid to take time to collect your thoughts before you
Make questions too! – interview is not an interrogation; it is a pleasant dialog. It’s also OK to ask the interviewer to repeat a question or clarify your understanding of what you are being asked.
Be original! Avoid using “common” answers from online sites.
If you are unsure about whether your example is what the interviewer was looking for, at the end of your response check with the interviewer that you have adequately answered their question or need more information.
Frequently asked questions
We try to address all frequent questions but sometimes there are some specific cases that may cause other questions to come up. You can find a list with the most common questions below.

Before applying for an open position, place your resume and job listing side by side, and try to draw line between similar things you can find. Try to figure out if they connect, where do they connect, how they connect, and how you can prepare to talk about areas that they don’t connect. Apply for the job positions that you consider to be the best fit for!
Pfizer is committed to providing developmental opportunities for internal candidates, therefore applying to another position is an opportunity for both growth and development.

While it is strongly recommended that colleagues remain in their role for a minimum of twelve months in order to get a better understanding of the role, set their goals and reach them, there is no required time before a colleague may apply for another opportunity. Candidates who most closely meet the requirements of the job will be selected for an interview. Interviews may consist of screening calls, video conferencing, face-to-face interviews at a location convenient to the Recruiter and the Hiring Manager.
