"High Standards and High Expectations by all and for all"

Who are we?

GSK is a FTSE 100 company and one of the largest science-led healthcare
companies in the world. We produce around four billion packs of medicines each
year, which are marketed in more than 150 countries. Our products are used to treat major diseases such as asthma, cancer, diabetes and infections. GSK also produces a range of consumer products – you may be familiar with many of them such as Maximuscle, Sensodyne, Aquafresh toothpaste and Horlicks. We also work in partnership with Save the Children and McLaren, and in 2012 we developed forward-looking commitments such as our aim to be carbon neutral across our entire supply chain by 2050.

What is a GSK apprenticeship?
Our apprenticeship programme offers exciting opportunities to both school and college leavers. You’ll have the chance to study towards nationally recognised qualifications while gaining valuable work experience and also getting paid.
We offer a range of apprenticeships to Level 5 (Foundation degree) and beyond.
We expect all our apprentices to complete a minimum Level 3. Progression tohigher levels is limited only by ambition and ability.
The apprenticeship is made up of a number of studymodules, usually undertaken in college, combined with on-the-job training to give you hands-on experience of the working environment. From early on, you will be working in a real team to deliver genuine businessobjectives. You will also complete a personal development plan, tailored to you, and take on a number of different roles to accelerate your progress. Throughout the scheme, you will also receive regular feedback and coaching, while a personal mentor will be on hand to advise, support and help you to realise your potential. You will be employed throughout the scheme on an apprenticeship contract, giving you access to valuable GSK benefits!
During the programme, there will be opportunities to meet apprentices from other functions across the business to take part in key skill training, share experiences and develop a network of useful contacts.
What happens when you complete your apprenticeship?
You could be offered a role at GSK if you have demonstrated the skills and behaviours we look for in our locally grown talent.
