Read what our employees have to say about which CEPI value resonates with them the most.


I think the unique mission of CEPI really has brought us together and we all work towards the achievement of common goals. I think teamwork has immediate implications for our work environment but also larger implication for humanity to solve big problems such as pandemics.”

Xiuyi Dong, Head of Project Finance Management


We have a broad diversity of perspectives and backgrounds within CEPI staff and our partners, and thus we have an amazing opportunity to leverage that for shared success as an organization and to continue building a culture where people feel valued and respected.”

Daniel Skallman, Senior Manager Government Relations

“Setting goals, stepping out of my comfort zone with a continuous growth mindset has been one of the most important aspects of my improvement and the key to all fulfilment and achievement. At CEPI we are encouraged to challenge ourselves and embrace failure as a learning opportunity.”

Maria Farias, Senior HR partner

“All of the CEPI values resonate with me strongly and are what I also value in others. However, if pushed to choose, I would say integrity as I’m always striving to do what I believe is right, setting aside any personal agenda.”

Arminder Deol, Senior Scientist (Epidemiology)

“Transparency is something that I value in my daily work with upfront and proactive internal communications. It’s great that CEPI is continuously building a culture that demonstrates honesty, openness, and accountability.

Claire Bigand Mussel, Internal Communications Manager

Life at CEPI

We are committed to creating a workplace that enables us to prioritise our wellbeing in full awareness that to deliver our mission, we need a high-performing and caring culture.

Since CEPI is a global organisation operating across various time zones, we are making sure our colleagues feel connected wherever they are; from sharing ideas and success stories on our internal platform each day to connecting employees across the world with our randomised coffee trials taken place each month.

We also have social activities all year round, like our staff retreat, driven by passionate and committed employees who work together to make things happen.

We are nurturing a learning-centred work culture with our e-learning platform, in-house lunch talks, internal courses, and training for both leaders and employees. Our development approach is to enable everyone at CEPI to get better every day. The nature of our work also enables us to learn through stimulating experiences such as working with varied vaccine candidates and diseases and by engaging with global stakeholders including organisations playing a pivotal role in global health matters, part of CEPI’s ecosystem and networks.


Flexible Journey

We are continuously building a dynamic working model that helps us deliver our CEPI 2.0 strategy, covering 2022-2026, and fulfil our important mission while developing a trust-based approach with our employees.
