Amgen in the UK and Ireland
Amgen has more than 500 staff in the UK and Ireland, working in both the commercial and research & development organisations. The UK and Ireland commercial team operates out of our Cambridge and Dublin offices, with full sales, marketing, medical and support services.
Located less than an hour away from London by train, Cambridge is one of Britain’s most beautiful cities. Set in the Cambridgeshire countryside, the city is home to 31 university colleges, some of them dating back to the twelfth century.
Thanks to the University, Cambridge has a world famous reputation for science. From the likes of Sir Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin to Stephen Hawking, some of the great scientific discoveries have been made at Cambridge. The pioneering DNA work of Crick and Watson was another Cambridge first, which opened the door for today's genetic scientists, including those at Amgen.
Amgen first established a presence on the Cambridge Science Park more than 25 years ago. Today, Cambridge still remains at the forefront of science and is one of Europe’s most important biotechnology clusters.
