About GlaxoSmithKline (GSK)
GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) is a place where ideas come to life. As one of the world’s leading research-based pharmaceutical companies, GSK is dedicated to delivering products and medicines that help millions of people around the world do more, feel better and live longer.
Based in the UK, with operations in the US and over 100 countries worldwide, GSK make almost 4 billion packs of medicine and healthcare products every year. And much of this is thanks to an extensive product range that includes everything from prescription medicines & vaccines to popular consumer healthcare products.
So while some people depend on GSK’s pioneering pharmaceutical products to tackle life-threatening illnesses, others choose best-selling nutritional brands such as Lucozade and Ribena for a feel-good boost. GSK even manages to brighten smiles with some of the world’s favourite toothpaste brands.
But being a leader brings responsibility and means that we must also help developing countries where debilitating disease affects millions of people. To meet this challenge, we are committed to providing discounted medicines where they are needed the most. Our new volunteering programme 'Pulse' empowers employees to use their skills and knowledge to make a significant difference in impoverished communities at home or abroad.
New starters at GSK soon see that there’s no such thing as a typical career path. With so much geographical and business diversity on offer, as well as a number of industrial placements, across all business functions, there are plenty of opportunities to learn and develop.
