In the UK, Chiesi has a workforce of over 400 people employed directly or indirectly with chosen partners, who are based out of our head office in Manchester, the Research and Development centre in Chippenham, and across the UK as part of our experienced field-based sales teams.


As with every part of the Chiesi group, we embrace a shared set of values and a common code of ethical conduct. This demands the highest standards of reliability, transparency, and individual accountability, in everything we do. It emphasises the importance of collaborative working, putting people first and exchanging knowledge.  Implicit in all of these values is a responsible attitude to the social and environmental impact of our actions and, in this regard, Chiesi was proud to achieve the B Corp certification in June 2019.  This certification recognises our commitment to use business as a force for good, strive to ensure the business decisions and actions we take are sustainable, have regard to social and environmental considerations and involve fair and equitable treatment.


It is our people who are at the heart of what we do and what we achieve.  We strive to create a culture that encourages innovation and allows everyone to flourish.  In a recent employee survey, 85% of our employees said “taking everything into account, this is a great place to work”.  We were therefore delighted in April 2020 to be recognised as one of the UK’s Best Workplaces 2020!  This award coming on the back of being certified as a UK and European Top Employer for eight consecutive years.
