Orion offers summer jobs and trainee positions for students. The Phase1 summer trainee program's application period for summer 2020 will be opened the 2nd of January 2020. Unfortunately it is currently not possible to submit open traineeship applications to us. Orion's Phase1 is a Summer trainee Program that offers students for example in the fields of natural sciences, pharmacy, technology and economics possibilities to show their talent in an international pharmaceutical company.

Phase1 Summer Job Program

Would you like to spend your summer working for example in a laboratory, research & development, with statistics or in the HR department?

One of the best parts of the Phase1 program is the diverse job possibilities and challenging tasks - of course not forgetting the great colleagues. The candidates selected to the Phase1 program have the chance to build well-being with us for the whole summer and get to know what we do at Orion. We will make sure that everyone gets a proper introduction to the job and we will also offer networking possiblities with the Phase1 colleagues in events organized throughout the summer.

The application period for Phase1 Summer trainee positions for 2020 will be opened the 2nd of January 2020.

What have the former Phase1 Summer Trainees said about the program?

  • Content of work was challenging and interesting.
  • Working atmosphere at Orion was excellent.
  • On-boarding was well planned.
  • Organized events were a good way to network with other trainees.

Phase1 summer job story 2019

”I am Fan, 2nd year master student in Translational Medicine at University of Helsinki. During summer 2019, I worked as a SAS programmer in Biostatistics and Modelling team in R&D in Orion. My task mainly involved in programming data sets according to SEND data standards and visualising non-clinical data. 

This is my first work experience in a Finnish company. I must say I really enjoy working here in Orion. I enjoyed every lunch talk, crazy laugh from coffee room, and of course, every battle on the tennis court with other Orion fellows. At work, I was given enough time to learn new tools and my supervisor and workmates offered me help and guidance whenever I needed.

I also appreciate Orion offers Phase1 summer workers a platform, such as lectures, talks, trainings, mentoring program, factory visit and so on,  to learn about the pharmaceutical business and to build network. Overall, I strongly recommend you to apply to work in this Finnish company with an international mind. ”

−Fan, Phase1 Summer Job 2019
