Training Manager, Gastroenterology



We're different. We are a Biopharma that keeps it personal.

At Takeda, it's our people, our values and our culture that make us special. We share a sense of vocation and a desire to serve others that pulses through our entire organization. We're fortunate to be grounded in a history that gives us a long term perspective, the confidence to stick to what we believe in, and the humility to know we don't have all the answers.

We combine this outlook with an agility and tenacity to deliver for our patients that has fueled the growth of our business. But what really sets our company apart is something we call Patient Trust Reputation Business. It's the framework that enables us to translate our purpose and values into action. It's how we synchronize the diversity of our perspectives, strengths and expertise. And it’s what keeps our decision making tethered to what really matters.

There are endless opportunities for people in science-related fields at Takeda. This is a company that focuses on the patients and their employees.

The people here are fantastic. Everyone has been wonderful. The opportunities at Takeda are enormous. I don’t know why you would go anywhere else, incredible support system, everything a professional could ask for.

Kristen H. US Medical

Takeda Walks the Talk. We say Patient, Trust, Reputation and Business, other companies say they put patient first, but when push comes to shove, doesn’t always happen. The openness of leadership — Christophe, Ramona, the questions they take, they’re open and this has trickled down.
