We are proud to announce that Shire will be exhibiting at Jobs Expo Galway. The event takes place on Saturday 24th February at the Radisson Blu Hotel.
Shire is a leading global biotechnology company with a focus on rare diseases. Founded in 1986, the company seeks to address unmet medical needs. Within the first two years of operation, it launched a range of supplemental calcium products to treat or prevent osteoporosis. After that, it began to develop innovative drug programmes. These treated patients with conditions such as Alzheimer's disease and end-stage renal failure.
Shire has continued to grow dramatically and expand its portfolio. After the acquisition of Baxalta in 2016, it became the world's leading global biotechnology company serving patients with rare diseases.
The company’s medicines are available in more than 100 countries. As a result, Shire is in a leading position to provide solutions globally that enable more patients and families around the world to live their lives to the fullest.
Shire offers significant opportunities to their employees. These include the opportunity to learn and grow their careers, as well as the chance to improve the lives of hundreds of millions of people. The company has nearly 22,000 employees across more than 100 countries, and its employees make a difference around the world, as well as and give back to the communities in which they live and work.
Shire is an equal opportunity employer. The company recruits, develops and retains top talent who take a responsible and ethical approach and who want to make a difference in the lives of patients.
