And where you’ll be working.

Takeda employs over 30,000 people worldwide, with affiliates in more than 70 countries throughout Europe, Asia and North America. We operate out of a number of main hubs across the world, including Takeda Development Centre Europe in London.

Unusually for a pharmaceutical R&D function, we’re not only based in a city centre, we’re based in the centre of London. Our building at 61 Aldwych is in the capital’s bustling West End, surrounded by theatres, galleries, museums and restaurants. It means not only will you be working at the heart of Takeda, you’ll be working in the heart of London, too.  

Our London Development team is exceptionally diverse and made up of people from a range of nationalities and backgrounds. What’s more, because we place so much emphasis on collaborative working, you will have the chance to team up with colleagues from across our global business.

About Takeda Development Centre Europe

Based in Central London, the Takeda Development Centre Europe Ltd. integrates our clinical development activity in Europe and our ability to rapidly bring superior products to market – products which will improve patient health and enhance the practice of medicine.

Our global R&D organisations aim to develop drugs that meet real patient needs through innovation in drug discovery. This is underpinned by our fundamental policy of concentrating resources into core therapeutic areas, building a competitive drug pipeline, ensuring approvals and increasing R&D productivity.

Our focus is on the core therapeutic areas of metabolic diseases, oncology, CNS diseases and immunology/inflammatory.

We’re looking to develop pharmaceuticals based on novel technologies, including biologics (vaccines, antibodies and peptides) and nucleic acid medicines as well as small molecules. And we’re investigating basic technologies in new drug research, biomarkers and drug delivery systems.

We have a strong focus on collaboration and are committed to supporting deeper cooperation between different regions under our global R&D management framework.
