About Us

At GSK, we focus on creating an inclusive environment where all employees feel engaged and know their work makes an important contribution. An inclusive environment welcomes different knowledge, perspectives, experiences and working styles from across our global population. This not only enhances individual creativity and innovation, but makes good business sense.

Being an inclusive employer enables us to better understand and respond to the needs of patient and healthcare workers in all our markets and helps us attract, retain and motivate a workforce that reflects the many communities in which we operate and with whom we work.

Our commitments:
- Continue to promote inclusion and diversity globally at GSK.
- Continue to create a working environment that inspires people to grow and perform in a healthy and resilient way.
- Extend volunteering opportunities to bring about positive change to communities and global health while providing individual development.

Tips for applying

Recruiters share their top tips for anyone thinking of applying for a role at GSK.

  • Different experiences We're looking for people with commercial awareness and good communication skills, and we want team players. Those skills can be developed through all sorts of experiences
  • Interview Prep Do your research, think about the questions you're likely to be asked - even arrange to have a couple of mock interviews. If you know what to expect, you'll feel more confident and you're more likely to do yourself justice
  • Disability Confident It's a part of who you are, not something to hide. We'll do everything we can to make the adjustments you need.

Your Plus

You need to have real ambition, a genuine interest in your chosen career path and a self-motivated, proactive approach. You’ll need to be a clear, effective communicator who can work across boundaries and quickly build a rapport with a wide range of people.

Just as important is the ability to adapt to change and stay focused when the pressure is on. While you’ll have the drive and confidence to trust your own judgement, you’ll also be a team player who enjoys working with others. Not least, you’ll need an analytical mind, a talent for multi-tasking and the ability to influence people.
