Thermo Fisher chooses Highered to promote its core China Leadership Development Program.

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. (NYSE: TMO) is the world leader in serving science, with revenues of more than $24 billion and approximately 70,000 employees globally. Our mission is to enable our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer. We help our customers accelerate life sciences research, solve complex analytical challenges, improve patient diagnostics, deliver medicines to market and increase laboratory productivity.

This year, TMO China partners with Highered to recruit top talent with MBA (or relevant Master’s Degree) and 3+ years work experience for its China Leadership Development Program (CLDP).  CLDP provides a unique opportunity for high potential advanced degree graduates to develop the skills necessary for a career in a functional leadership role at Thermo Fisher Scientific. This is a two-year rotational program which provides broad experience in cross-functional opportunities, while allowing for exposure to the company’s core processes, technologies, and leaders. Rotations are determined through a combination of individual development needs and business priorities.

Additional learning opportunities round out the two year development program and include but not limited to: formal learning sessions, an Executive Mentor program, and business projects.

Rotation examples include:
• Financial Planning & Analysis
• Strategic Pricing
• Finance Data & Analytics (Business Intelligence)
• Business Development
• Strategic Marketing
• Operations/Supply Chain
• Human Resources

The CLDP affords participants an outstanding opportunity to produce results, quickly gain credibility and develop a strong company network over two years. From a post-program placement perspective, participants will work with their Program Manager to identify positions in which to interview across the organization.
