International assignments

During 2017, Recipharm filled four positions in collaboration with Business France to promote the international assignment and development of young professionals. All four assignees were French nationals who are now working on site at facilities in Uppsala (Sweden), Jordbro (Sweden), Ashton (UK) and Bengaluru (India), helping to support us in different projects and areas. 

As part of the cooperation between Recipharm and Business France, Recipharm provides the assignments and Business France act as the employer for the assignees. This setup is a part of the French International Internship Program (V.I.E. – Volontariat International en Entreprises), created in September 2001 under the leadership of the French Ministry for Foreign Trade.

The V.I.E program is managed by Business France, the national agency supporting the international development of the French economy. The program allows companies with operations in France to recruit and send young European graduates, between the ages of 18 and 28, on international working assignments for 6 to 24 months. The current Recipharm assignees are employed for 12 months.

*Recruitment for a second round of assignments at Recipharm is planned for Q1 2019, details to come.

Below our current V.I.E assignees talk about their experience so far of working within the various areas and teams of Recipharm.
