Amgen Commercial Leadership Program (Full-Time Management Development Rotational Program) in Thousand Oaks, California

The Amgen Commercial Leadership Program (CLP) is a career opportunity for candidates interested in continuing his/her professional development and in becoming a key contributor at Amgen. The program consists of three 12-month rotations, totaling 3 years. The positions offered through this program vary across Amgen's Global Commercial Operations (GCO) organization. Potential assignments include sales, marketing promotion, marketing research, strategy & planning, access & reimbursement, market development, global licensing, global marketing, and corporate accounts.

The sales assignment entails the selling of Amgen's products to primary care, cardiology, nephrology, oncology, rheumatology or dermatology customers. In some cases, it may also include partnering with Corporate Account Managers to manage strategic partnerships with key customers, or managing specific projects with the Regional/District Sales Managers. The location of the sales rotation assignment will be determined based on company needs at the time of hire, which requires that the candidate be geographically flexible for this assignment.

Non-sales assignments require the program participant to assume responsibility for a specific area on a team within one of the Business Units, Corporate Accounts, Global Value Access & Policy, Global Marketing, or Intercontinental Region (Canada, Middle East, Turkey, Africa, and Latin America). The location of these assignments is typically at Amgen's Thousand Oaks, California global headquarters, with the possibility of one of the rotations being an international role.
