About the Company:

Like all success stories, our company history started with a great idea. In 1895, a group of pharmacists had a common objective: The standardized production of medicinal products to ensure an effective and reasonable provision of healthcare for the many. This was the beginning of STADA’s impressive development.


We are now a leading manufacturer of high-quality pharmaceuticals. With a long-standing heritage rooted in pharmacies, we continue to be a reliable and trustworthy partner. We help people regain and protect a dignified and able life.


As STADA, we fundamentally care for people’s health as a trusted partner.




If you are ready for new challenges where you can make a difference to people’s health, you have come to the right place. We are looking for people with a great attitude and passion, who care about making a difference in the world.


About the Role:


Communication to our pharmacy partners is a key part of the Care growth strategy, there is significant investment in pharmacy trade media to support this ambition, with a campaign launching in May 2022 that centres around communications that pharmacists and pharmacy assistants can relate to and feel empowered by. That not only drives awareness of the brand but sells in the benefits of the product range and it’s added services too.
