Want to work at Amgen? We headed to its Dún Laoghaire facility to find out the kind of traits Amgen looks for in its employees.

While you might know the kind of tasks you will be working on if you have a job in the biopharma sector, each company looks for particular traits in their employees.

According to Amgen Dún Laoghaire’s HR manager, Mark Fitzgibbon, Amgen wants individuals who like to work in a fast-paced, cross-functional environment.

“I also think it’s imperative that we fully understand the skillsets that we will require in the future,” he said.

“Technology in our industry is progressing at a rapid rate and it’s key that we keep ahead of that change.”
