Kyowa Kirin International is headquartered in the Scottish Borders with full commercial operations in the UK and Ireland.
Kyowa Kirin is focused on building a Global Specialty Pharmaceutical company to be proud of. By embracing innovation, we have been able to develop a cutting edge pipeline of products targeted on therapy areas that currently have few treatment options. This approach makes a real difference to the patients and their families, helping to bring some resolve and hope.
To ensure our global vision is achieved Kyowa Kirin understands it is nothing without having people who are passionate to make a real difference, and never settle for the status quo. We are focused on keeping the family feel and to continue building a reputation as a company that cares about its people. Everyone is an individual and never a number.
As we grow we need people that live by our values, work with a team mind-set and are motivated to make a positive imprint on the lives of patients. Every one of us works to build a legacy that is innovative, exciting and true to our core values that creates pride in what a likeminded team can achieve.
“Our Ambition is to be a Global Specialty Pharmaceutical Company, so in the UK and Ireland, we pride ourselves on having an array of talented people who bring different skills and attributes to our team. We work as a team and thrive on a collective ambition culture to help improve patients’ lives. This is why our purpose is core to everything we do and is our commitment to life. Our employees put our values at the heart of every decision they make and thrive in our learning and development environment that allows them to grow to their full potential.
Our future is exciting with substantial research and development investments in Japan providing a strong pipeline that has the potential to bring hope to many patients in need. Our future would not be bright if it was not for the team of today. We have and want some of the most talented people that are passionate to live by our purpose of “Commitment to Life”.
I began my career at Kyowa Kirin over 8 years ago. My sole drive was to help improve patients’ lives, and through our products and our people we are delivering on that ambition. If you are passionate to make a difference and be part of a team that cares, whilst also challenging yourself to be better every day, then Kyowa Kirin is for you.”
