Elanco Canada Ltd. is the animal health division of Eli Lily and Company. On PEI, this biotech pharmaceutical company manufactures vaccines for fish. “Our customers are from all over the world,” says Ashlee London.
“We have approximately 115 employees, and we are very well represented with people from all over the world.
“We have a large manufacturing facility, so most frequently we hire Technicians for manufacturing jobs like downstream and upstream processing, final formulation and filling, as well as fermentation.
“We also employ people in Research and Development, Quality Control, Quality Assurance, Engineering, IT, Supply Chain, Finance, and HR.
“A science background is ideal for our manufacturing positions, but a strong work ethic, a proven motivation to come to work and do a good job every day, flexibility, and the ability to follow instructions and guidelines goes a long way. A fit with the team, the company, and the culture is very important.
“We don’t limit our hiring to people with experience in exactly the same type of company. I always encourage people to apply if they have comparable skills, experience, and/or education as listed in the job description.
“If you see a posting, and you are interested and you have the skills, apply in the manner specified in the job advertisement.
“That will open the opportunity for discussions with our recruiters, HR team, and hiring managers. One online application can open the door to multiple viewings, and begins a profile creation with the company.”
