Apotex is Hiring Across the Organization

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve every day, we understand that for many people it comes with a sense of uncertainty at home and at work.

At Apotex, we have a tremendous responsibility to deliver essential medicines to millions of patients around the world who rely on us every day. We cannot do this without our employees.

During this crisis, patients depend on us to maintain the continuity of our supply which is why we are still hiring for a wide-range of opportunities. These positions include remote and onsite full-time, part-time and temporary positions for job seekers at different stages of their career.  

“Our Functional Hiring managers and our Talent Acquisition Team have shown great resilience and agility,” says Suzannah Kelly, Senior Director, Global Talent Management. “We have adapted our recruitment efforts to ensure our staff and applicants are safe while maintaining the quality of our process by conducting fully-remote recruitment and virtual onboarding.”

While we are encouraging staff to work-from-home if they can, there are many Apotex employees where work-from-home is not an option due to the nature of the role. During these unprecedented times we developed a unique recognition program to demonstrate our appreciation for the unique challenge our onsite employees face by having to leave the comfort of their homes and commute to work.

The program includes, increased pay for those who remain onsite, an accelerated bonus payout and acts of Apotex Kindness all geared toward these employees. Most importantly, we have  implemented a number of measures to protect the health and well-being of our employees which include but are not limited to: staggering employee shifts to reduce the size of work groups, modifying our cafeteria space to enhance social distancing, the implementation of additional cleaning and sanitization routines, robust self-assessment and screening tools, and a strict visitor screening protocol.

“Recognizing this is an uncertain time for many, we pride ourselves on providing a collaborative environment where employees are empowered to learn and grow in their careers, whether in a temporary or permanent capacity” says Suzannah.

Our employees are rising to the challenge for their families, friends, neighbours, communities, and the patients – that rely on us for medicines. We encourage those who are looking for rewarding, purpose driven opportunities, to apply to be part of the Apotex family and join us in improving access to affordable, high-quality and innovative medicines for patients around the world.
