Director of Portfolio and Pricing
“Teva is a big believer in investing in its staff”
I’ve been at Teva for 19 years and what I love about working here is that every day is a school day.
For me, job satisfaction comes from continuing to learn. Teva is very open to trying new things and there’s fantastic support for professional development and career progression.
I originally joined Teva for two weeks as a temp in telesales for a new product launch. I’d just returned from working abroad and I was taking a few months’ break before going back; I was planning to work on a cruise ship. But I enjoyed my experience at Teva so much that when I was offered a permanent job, I jumped at the chance. And that two weeks has turned into 19 years.
After working in telesales, I was promoted to team leader and progressed to a number of roles, including in customer sales. When I realised I wanted to look for a new challenge outside of telesales, I spoke to my manager, and the company supported me to create a new role in commercial initiatives.
This is where I think Teva is great; not many companies would offer such a brilliant opportunity.
I then worked in marketing, gaining extra skills, before taking my current role. Teva is a big believer in investing in its staff, whether it’s providing mentors or the encouragement to take external professional courses. People like working here, and I think the longevity of many colleagues is testament to that.
As Director of Portfolio and Pricing, I’m responsible for the overall product lifecycle. I also get involved with business development, including sourcing business development opportunities, and other commercial initiatives.
Working at Teva is fun, exciting, dynamic and fast paced. There’s a real willingness to showcase creativity here and an appetite for people to challenge themselves. This makes it a great environment in which to grow and learn.
The people are also fantastic; everyone’s very friendly and caring.
