Process Coordinator apprenticeships

Our Process Coordinator Apprentice Program is designed to create the science manufacturing technicians of the future.

Whether we are developing a new treatment, improving the taste of one of our consumer products, or testing the effects of a nutritional product, the laboratory is home to all of these activities. As a Process Coordinator apprentice you will lead quality and continuous improvement activities of R&D Pilot Plant Operations. Our R&D pilot plant facilities are where we manufacture oral tablets and capsules, respiratory inhalers, and intranasal devices for clinical trials and other investigational purposes.
