During 2017, Recipharm filled it's first four positions in collaboration with Business France to promote the international assignment and development of young professionals. All four assignees were French nationals who worked on our sites 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. Recipharm assignees are employed initally for 12 months and are then evaluated.
*Recruitment for a second round of assignments at Recipharm is ongoing but the application process has now closed.
Below some of our first V.I.E assignees talk about their experience of working within the various areas and teams of Recipharm.
