AstraZeneca (AZ) is a global, science-led biopharmaceutical company that focuses on the discovery, development and commercialisation of prescription medicines, primarily for the treatment of diseases in three therapy areas - Oncology, Cardiovascular/ Renal/ Metabolism and Respiratory. Within AZ we are passionate about science and we collaborate across global boundaries to deliver life-changing medicines to patients.  We do this with integrity because we are committed to doing the right thing.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced environmental exposure scientist to join the Global Safety, Health and Environment (SHE) Team as a Senior Environmental Risk Assessor.
