At Janssen Pharmaceutica, everyone is committed to make a difference in people's lives and to push the boundaries of what science and innovation can achieve. The values that guide our decision-making are spelled out in Our Credo. Put simply, Our Credo challenges us to put the needs and well-being of the people we serve first; our patients, doctors and nurses, our employees, our communities and our stakeholders. Together with our more than 5,000 colleagues in Belgium, all with a heart for the patient, we strive for a future in which disease is a thing of the past.

The Program

The Young Graduate Development Program is a three-year rotational program designed to introduce recent graduates to all aspects of the Johnson & Johnson Supply Chain in Belgium. The trainee will be assigned to Janssen Supply Chain in Beerse (Pharmaceutical Production), Janssen Supply Chain Geel, Clinical Supply Chain, Chemical Production, E&PS , CAR-T or the Deliver organization of J&J in Belgium.

During the first two years the trainee yearly rotates within the assigned organization and gets the opportunity to gain experience in different functional areas, such as Production, Quality, Planning, Engineering, Technical Operations and Procurement. The third year consists of a final placement. Each rotation is tailored to the trainee’s talent and development opportunities and the business needs. Startdate will be September 2023.

Only strategically important responsibilities are given to the trainee. The content depends on the company’s current strategy and the trainee’s skill set. In addition to projects, the trainee will also be assigned a functional role within a specific department in order to get acquainted with the day-to-day workings from different perspectives. In this way, the trainee will get to know the organization and build an internal network. By creating a general overview of the business, the young graduate will be ready for a new challenge within the Johnson & Johnson Supply Chain organization.

The Support

The trainee receives support for every project and can count on the experience of his or her Assignment Manager within the assigned functional department.

Moreover, the Program focuses on personal development. Throughout the rotations the trainee is coached by a Development Manager, focusing on a tailor-made development plan to fit his or her ambitions and aspirations. Both hard and soft skills, internal and external opportunities are offered to prepare the trainee for a successful further career.
