230 people will move from AstraZeneca in Lund to Mölndal. But there are still about 100 positions that need to be filled in the next 12 months.
- The great challenge for AstraZeneca is to fill the positions that will be required when Mölndal expands, says Filip Sjögren, HR Director, to GP.
AstraZeneca is undergoing a major restructuring of its research departments and 1800 research jobs worldwide will disappear. In Sweden, the research facilities in Lund are moved to Mölndal. And Mölndal will be made the Group's centre for clinical research. As a result, 350 new positions are added to Mölndal.
- Around 230 people will move with us from Lund and start working here this summer. We would happily have taken onboard a few more if they wanted to move. But we couldn't get everyone with us, so we need to recruit around 100 people within a year, in a first stage, says Filip Sjögren.
Recruitment will start this spring, and a majority of the positions are for researchers. Filip Sjögren says that the recruitment will be a huge, but fun challenge for the Group.
- I don't think we will find everyone in the Gothenburg region, which would have been the easiest and cheapest. All of Sweden and abroad will be our recruitment base.
