Please note - In recent weeks there has been an increase in suspicious email activity from people masquerading as recruiters for AstraZeneca. These have been using very realistic looking material, imitating AstraZeneca people, involving fake offers of employment and asking for the exchange of money and credit card details. AstraZeneca will never ask for money at any point in our recruitment process. If you are approached in this way, please ignore it.
