There’s a simple purpose that sits at the heart of our business: to enable people with life-altering conditions to lead better lives. This means we focus on developing treatments for conditions where the impact of our medicines can make an immediate and tangible difference for patients.

Our growth strategy is to focus on developing and marketing innovative specialty medicines for symptomatic conditions to meet significant unmet patient needs. Our two strategic priorities are to drive optimum performance of our existing products, enabling access to these medicines for patients today; and building our pipeline through research and development (R&D) and business development (BD), delivering access in the future for patients

We are always looking for talented people to join the Shire team. To learn more about Shire, visit For more information on career opportunities with Shire, please visit: .
