Rare Unstoppable Progress

Discover the heart of a champion.

There are more than 7,000 rare diseases affecting people in every part of the world. And most of these patients have no treatment options available to them.

At Shire, this is our call to action. We are the leading biotechnology company focused on rare diseases and highly specialized conditions. We’re also a team with an ambitious goal: to find the answers these patients are seeking. It’s not a job for everyone.

Shire is all about possibilities – for our patients and our people. Working here, you’ll have freedom to explore new frontiers, with the support and inspiration you need to excel, whatever your career path.

In a world where progress is unstoppable, at Shire you’ll discover a place where great people are doing innovative science that improves lives all over the world. Be a champion for the patient. And a champion for progress.
