Pfizer Puurs manufactures and packages over 400 million injectable vaccines and medicines every year. This high-tech site is a world leader in aseptic manufacture and packaging and aims to continue to make a difference in the lives of patients worldwide. Moreover, Pfizer Puurs is the leading manufacturer of vaccines for developing countries, including pneumococcal immunisation. The company manufactures 100 million vaccines each year which are made available to NGOs and patients in developing countries in conjunction with Unicef, Gavi and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Pfizer Puurs’ ongoing growth is creating many opportunities for employees to continue to develop via training courses, to keep on learning and performing various roles. Pfizer is strongly reliant on teamwork to achieve this.
There is also a need for a sufficient intake of new employees. Over the last 5 years, the number or employees has increased by over 1000.
In this context, alongside other initiatives, 4 job days have also been organised in the last 2 years. Interested parties get the chance to meet Pfizer employees and to “speed date” with managers. They can take a virtual 3D tour of the company, followed by a tour of the production facility. 1 in 5 visitors went on to sign a contract of employment.
