We see the unseen.

At Alexion, we see opportunities where others do not and we have the courage to explore what others believe is impossible. We see patients suffering from devastating diseases that are often overlooked. We see a pathway from innovative science to the delivery of breakthrough therapies. 

Patients with these life-threatening diseases often have no effective treatment options, and they and their families suffer with little hope. Our goal is to deliver medical breakthroughs where none currently exist. We are driven because we know people's lives depend on our work.

Welcome to the Alexion Ireland website. Ireland is home to Alexion’s global supply chain and quality operations, and is an important region of growth for the Company. As we build our presence in Ireland with a new vialling fill-finish facility in Athlone and a state-of-the-art campus in Blanchardstown, including a new bulk biologics manufacturing facility, we are seeking candidates who are motivated, engaged and committed to our mission of transforming patients’ lives. Opportunities are available in Quality, Engineering, Technical Operations, Packaging, Facilities and Maintenance, Logistics and Supply Chain, and more.

Alexion is committed to transforming patients’ lives and has local operations in Ireland to serve patients suffering from paroxysmal nocturnal haemoglobinuria (PNH) and atypical haemolytic uraemic syndrome (aHUS)—two ultra-rare diseases that are severe, chronic and progressive, and have a profound impact on patients, their families and society. We invite you to explore our website and learn more.

Alexion Employees in Ireland join Colleagues Around the World for Global Day of Service

On September 23, 2016, more than 1,500 Alexion employees volunteered in their local communities as part of the Company’s first Global Day of Service. The event helped inspire and connect employees with a common purpose and brought hands-on support to some of the most pressing needs in our local neighborhoods. In Ireland, 110 employees joined the effort by helping to transform the gardens of the Daughters of Charity in Dublin who provide a range of services for people with intellectual disability. While in Athlone 3 activity rooms were furbished in St Hilda’s House, who also provide a number of services to people with intellectual disabilities. Read our press release to learn more.
