Meet Jeffrey Scicluna, from the Quality Control team at Teva Malta!

Meet Maria Portelli

who has been working as a Machine Setter in the Packaging Department for the last 10 years.

Starting off as an operator, Maria was already motivated and showing potential on the job. She was promoted to a machine setter, leading the job and making sure that the machine is set correctly and working efficiently.

Six years on the job gave Maria the opportunity to become a Trainer, giving adequate training to new recruits on the job.

Outside Teva, Maria is a mother, who loves to travel and experience new cultures while enjoying herself with her loved ones.

“I’m proud to work in a pharmaceutical company where we help patients in need. Teva has given me a great opportunity to move forward in my career, while always keeping everyone motivated.”

We believe that talent is found anywhere, which is why we look for it across a range of sectors. It’s how we access a variety of insights, ideas, and experiences that help us continue to grow and succeed as an organization. It’s about broadening our collective intelligence and seeking innovation in all we do.

Meet Robert Cassar

Manager Housekeeping at Teva Malta.

Robert’s career journey at Teva started 30 years ago as a Compression Operator, whilst also learning different duties and responsibilities. After 10 years, an opportunity had emerged and moved to a Supervisor Housekeeping and later promoted to a Manger.

Robert’s day is packed with various tasks and responsibilities; starting with an area team meetings to coordinate the day, handling of job priorities, delegating necessary work whilst also focusing on other duties related to Production, amongst others.

“Having a housekeeping team is important in this industry. It prevents any kind of contamination that can affect the quality of our medicinal products. By following our cleaning procedures, we can ensure that our product is delivered at highest quality standards to protect and help the patient’s health and wellbeing.”

Robert has grown and achieved multiple opportunities in the last 30 years and he’s grateful for the respectful relationships within everyone in team.

“EHS&S is awareness to create a safer environment at the workplace. Employee safety is of the utmost importance, thus any hazard needs to be addressed and tackled accordingly.”

Meet Colin and David

colleagues who are responsible for the tooling in the Packaging Department while making sure that everything is well maintained in optimum condition for production purposes.

Thanks to this team, Teva Bulebel site has been selected for an Honorable Mention in the Safety Category of 2022 EHS&S, based on the Punch Tool Finger Protection Guards.

What does this mean? For the past 2 months, the team was working on designing and manufacturing a guard that creates a safer punching tool. It covers a gap in the tool that could be hazardous if the tool gets stuck while handled by personnel. By adding a red painted strip behind the guard, this modification will also include a visual aid to show that it is in a stuck position, therefore technical assistance will be required.

Determination and dedication!

This is what defines Christopher Buhagiar, an age group triathlon athlete who just competed in the Olympic distance event with the rest of the Maltese national team in Abu Dhabi, YAS islands.
