Host Introduction

MSD Ireland is one of the country’s leading healthcare companies, having first established here over 50 years ago. In order to understand MSD Ireland, it’s important to get a sense of the Irish pharmaceutical industry and the pivotal role it plays in Ireland’s economy as a whole.

We currently employ approximately 2,700 employees, across six sites in Ballydine, Co Tipperary, Brinny, Co Cork, Carlow, Dunboyne and Dublin and, in addition, operate substantial Human Health and Animal Health businesses.

Significantly our Irish sites manufacture approximately half of MSD’s top twenty products, saving and enhancing lives in over sixty countries around the world.

The STInt Intern will have a laptop provided for the duration of the internship. They will participate in induction as part of their integration into the team. In addition, they will have a buddy who is a member of their team who will support them on queries etc., as well as having regular meetings with the cell leader who can provide additional support as required.

As part of this experience , the STInt Intern will see the full end to end elements of a pharmaceutical manufacturing company particularly in the area of manufacturing.
