We are a global biopharma company with a purpose to unite science, technology and talent to get ahead of disease together.

We aim to positively impact the health of 2.5 billion people over the next 10 years. Our bold ambitions for patients are reflected in new commitments to growth and a step-change in performance.

  • Rewarding and Motivating

    One of the greatest aspects of doing a degree apprenticeship, is that I am studying towards a degree that I'm interested in, and working in a role that I find both rewarding and motivating.
  • New Opportunities

    Working with diverse groups in the era of a new product launch proves that time really is what YOU make of it. Having GSK Ware on my doorstep is opening new opportunities
  • Inclusive Environment

    As an apprentice, I love that I'm able to do real work whilst also gaining a qualification! At GSK, I'm able to build my knowledge in an environment that's inclusive and encourages me to progress in my career longterm
I loved the feel of GSK’s culture and community at work. Discovering this opportunity to dive straight into the science and potentially make an impact to patients, whilst also having the chance to complete a degree was huge for me. After 3 years of being on the apprenticeship program it was clear the supportive and ambitious culture truly lies within everyone at GSK and it’s a great place to work.
