EMD Millipore – Why Work For Us?

Looking to develop your career in a fast paced environment where business and science collaborate to create exciting new market solutions and customer capabilities? Welcome to EMD Millipore.

We’re looking for leading talent who want to be recognized for their contributions. Join our team and you’ll represent a Global brand with an innovative multi-product portfolio and a long track record of success. We’re committed to improving human lives by delivering break-through products and services that provide true value to our Life Science customers.


​​A collaborative culture. A pioneering spirit. An unwavering focus on the end results of our work – better quality of life. You’ll find them all at our company. They stem from a common set of values which we live and breathe: courage, achievement, responsibility, respect, integrity and transparency.

Together they create the kind of conditions that encourage initiative, creativity and customer focus. Work for us and you’ll be part of strong, multi-disciplinary teams and encouraged to bring fresh ideas to the table. We’ll listen to and respect your views, give you the freedom to do your best work and trust you to find better answers and more imaginative solutions.

Although we’re a forward-thinking business with ambitious growth plans, there’s still a strong family feel that reflects our heritage. We value our people. And we know that the happier they are in their work, the more productive they’ll be. Here you can find out what we look for in our employees and how we make sure they want to stay with us.​​​

​It takes some very special people to pioneer and deliver the highest levels of innovation. Intellect, initiative and sheer imagination are all vital. That’s why we have such high standards when it comes to the people we recruit.

We look for entrepreneurial flair, a strong team ethic and a total commitment to making our products and services not just good, but great. You’ll be courageous and inquisitive too – traits we consider essential in our push to find answers and make breakthroughs.

Our most basic selection criteria, whatever role you’re applying for, are:
• Relevant qualifications and professional experience appropriate to the role
• Language skills – English – and local language depending on the location

Moreover, for us the combination of ‘soft’ skills and the right professional competencies is key. As consequence, during our selection process, we will make sure that you have the relevant personal competencies and will fit into our culture, which is collaborative, supportive and built on trust – as well as entrepreneurial and commercial. Although we’re a forward-thinking business with ambitious growth plans, there’s still a strong family feel that reflects our heritage.

Bring us the skills we need and you could find yourself collaborating with like-minded people on projects that will test your flexibility and creativity to the full.​​​

​​We believe lifelong learning is a must. And we have many ways to make sure it happens. From courses to individual coaching sessions to international assignments, we harness every opportunity to bring out the best in our people and enhance both their personal and professional skills.

At our company you will have the opportunity to develop through formal training and by learning on the job, working alongside stimulating colleagues and tackling projects that will stretch you and make you think. Naturally the largest part of the responsibility for your own professional progress will rest with you. But you can be confident we will play our part expertly.

We’re constantly updating and refining our range of internal and external training courses to make sure it meets the demands of every area of the business and develops both technical and soft skills. As excellent language skills are a valuable asset in a globally acting company, our portfolio includes everything from training in languages and presentation skills but also health & safety courses and self-directed online learning.

We offer individual trainings as well as team seminars. Studying in addition to your job is also supported (in case of good performance).

Our leadership development programs not only support the improvement of the skills of our managers and encourage them to engage in new ways of thinking. We also customize solutions, tailoring content to the specific needs of a division or function. And through new media, we help managers explore new ways of self-directed learning, develop self-awareness and work on individual development objectives.​​​

​​Joining our company you can expect a comprehensive and competitive package with a wide range of choice. Our benefits programs are designed to meet the challenges of an evolving competition for talent on a global scale. Benefits are aligned with local legislation and practices in each country. They generally include competitive pension plans, medical plans and other specific programs. Our employees enjoy the best of global corporate programs combined with the best and most competitive local market benefit trends.

We want our rewards packages to be competitive and motivational, and to recognize your contribution to the business. So as well as an attractive basic salary that fully reflects your responsibilities, qualifications and professional experience, we pay bonuses. It's not all about money though. We know that excellent working conditions, an active social scene and the chance to switch off, relax and recharge all play their part.​​​
