Careers at ThermoFisher Scientific


My work is aStory of Potential


EMEA Employee Testimonials

“I work on the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) Regulatory Affairs team. I am responsible for managing in vitro diagnostics (IVD) and the regulatory compliance activities within our region. In vitro diagnostics (IVD) are tests that can detect diseases, conditions, or infections in our products. Regulatory compliance is important because it shows that Thermo Fisher Scientific is aware of and adhering to the regulations within distinct regions. For example, in Europe, when we put new in vitro diagnostic medical devices onto the market, they are required to bear a mark known as the “CE” mark, a declaration that the product meets all requirements and can be freely marketed within the European Union. In the instance of a product recall, Regulatory Affairs is responsible for alerting competent authorities within our region where the product was sold. My team helps Thermo Fisher Scientific comply with regulations, ensuring that our high quality products reach our customers.”

Heather's Story

“I work as an Account Manager in sales and am responsible for the key accounts in Switzerland. I am part of a great team and work closely with six other people. As a sales person, my priority is our customers. I answer all of their email requests and questions, schedule customer calls, visit them in their different labs, and work to resolve any issues or complaints. I help customers with their needs like selecting the most suitable laboratory consumables, instruments, chemicals, and bioreagents. I help them find cost effective solutions and take any opportunity to promote our branded products when I see competitors’ products in their labs. Ultimately, it’s my goal to provide my customers with excellent service, build relationships with them, and ensure they know we are here to support them as a trusted partner.”

“I am employed in Thermo Fisher’s Financial Shared Services. I work to control and report our financial figures accurately and in alignment with our corporate policies and timeline. I prepare budgets, report figures, and check for analysis deviations to help in the decision-making process for our businesses. I collaborate with external and internal audit and tax authorities in order to avoid legal issues and improve our internal procedures and controls. I also work with the back office, service team, and dispatch team to support them with financial, fiscal, and legal documentation they may need for public tenders and customer service industries. Every day there is something new to learn.”

Carlos' Story

“As Accounting Manager of Accounting Shared Services for the Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry Division, I manage different financial activities for our business unit, such as monthly financial close, statutory accounts, working capital management, taxes, audits and AOP (annual operating plan). We help operations in different ways, including managing credit; providing guidance in terms of revenue recognition rules, T&C (terms and conditions) and contract review; and conducting financial analysis to help them achieve their goals in terms of revenue expansion or expense reduction. We are really focused on our customers, which are primarily our internal colleagues. If our team is approached with customer complaints or suggestions, we accept the responsibility of solving the problem and ensuring that customer satisfaction remains at the highest level. When working under pressure, I try to have as much information as possible, be ready to provide solutions, or even better, create an environment for my team to provide the solutions by themselves.”

Juan, Accounting/Auditing

Juan's Story

“As a laboratory information management system (LIMS) Consultant, my basic responsibility is to provide technical solutions for our customers. LIMS is a software program that tracks the lifecycle of the samples in the laboratory and provides functionality such as reporting, instrument integration, security and much more. This helps our customers improve efficiency, productivity, and quality by integrating the lab with their business. Our customers represent many different industries, such as pharmaceutical, petrochemical, metals and mining, as well as organizations that are involved with food safety and public health. For example, a laboratory that tests the quality of drinking water will normally receive samples from different places, such as a water treatment plant, public water sources and in-house taps. They may perform physical, chemical and microbiological analysis with LIMS to ensure all sources provide water that is safe for consumers to drink.”

In each assignment, I am responsible for leading key aspects of some of the most significant IT projects taking place in the company. For example, I recently focused on developing global infrastructure services for the Global IT Service Desk.  Each rotation exposes me to various roles and responsibilities within the function and supports my fast-track development into a leadership position at the end of the program.

Martynas' Story

“I am coordinating PPI Business System activities in Vilnius Biosciences Center of Excellence. Main goals of my daily work are to engage employees in continuous improvement, which results in constant increase of customer satisfaction, product quality and productivity. The key of success is that all functions are involved in PPI Business System: from operations, R&D up to office, including even suppliers. Important part of my duties is training on 8 step method and PPI/Lean tools – each new employee gets the necessary training during first 60 days. Moreover, we pay a lot of attention to deepen our knowledge and to solve problems according 8 step methods on daily basis. The team work is that I like the most - all employees accept the changes as the solutions are proposed and implemented by themselves.”

Alina's Story

“As a member of the LSG Regional IP team, I support the BID business in tailoring global/European IP strategies. This includes close coordination with local R&D to harvest and evaluate inventions and translate regional innovation into conceptual filing strategies. My daily tasks within IP Legal include freedom to operate analyses for new product introductions, mapping of competitor technologies, patent drafting and prosecution, and coordination of outside counsel work (e.g. in European opposition proceedings). My team constantly monitors new developments in European patent law that may have implications on global drafting and prosecution to provide qualified advice to our colleagues in IP Legal to help them shape their patent portfolios. We also support the Licensing & Commercial Supply group in addressing IP-related contractual issues. In addition, I am taking care of local inventorship issues that require specific consideration under national law, such as in Germany or Norway. During the last three years, I was given the opportunity to be trained and finally qualified as a European patent attorney. The combination of jurisprudence and technological progress both of which require continuous learning makes this function particularly exciting and diversified.”
