Novartis Graduate Program


927 million lives were touched by our products last year, and while we are proud of that we must ask ourselves: in this world of rapid digital and technological transformation, how will we reimagine medicine and continue to bend the curve of life?

We believe the answers are found when curious, courageous and collaborative minds like yours are brought together in an inspiring environment. Where you’re given the opportunity to explore the power and potential of data and digital. Where you’re empowered to risk failure by taking smart risks. Where you’re encouraged to share new ideas that’ll open up new ways of making things happen, and where you’re surrounded by teams who are equally determined to transform lives by tackling the world’s toughest medical challenges.

Join our Novartis Graduate Program and help us reimagine medicine.

To be successful, you will be an individual who is inspired by our purpose and feels empowered every day to be your best self.

The Novartis Graduate Program will challenge you to be the best version of yourself from the outset of your career. You will have exposure to our leaders from across the business, and access to a structured support community that will include buddies, mentors and coaches.

You will discover different areas of the business through a minimum of two rotations over the 18-month program and will embark on a Development Journey designed to challenge you both professionally and personally with a view to grow and develop our trusted leaders of the future.

At Novartis, every department in our organisation embraces new technologies and this will be no different on your Graduate Development Journey. Your development is important to us and your blended learning journey will include face-to-face workshops as well as access to an online learning platform (Grad Passport) and other development initiatives that will help to embed your learnings into your roles as you progress through the program.

You will also undertake an innovation challenge that will forge the skills required to be a successful leader in the ever-changing world of work and provide you with further exposure to our business and our leaders.

Here is a snap shot of what your 18-month Journey at Novartis will look like, commencing in July 2019:
