International assignments

During 2017, Recipharm started it´s collaboration with Business France to promote the international assignment and development of young professionals. In 2019 Recipharm recruited it´s second round of assignees for the program. Recipharm recruited four assignees from France and Portugal, who worked on our sites in Uppsala (Sweden), Brescia (Italy), Research Triangle Park (USA) 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. Recipharm assignees are employed initially for 12 months and are then evaluated.

*Recruitment for a third round of assignments at Recipharm is planned for 2021 and the assignments will then be published under careers/current vacancies.

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