Ahead Together for a brighter future

At GSK we make innovative vaccines and specialty medicines to help prevent and treat disease. Our R&D focuses on the science of the immune system, human genetics and advanced technologies.

GSK apprenticeships are a brilliant alternative to college courses or university. As one of the world’s leading biopharma companies, we offer an on-the-job learning experience that really stands out. You’ll earn a real salary for performing a real role – with your practical experience backed by classroom sessions.

A signal of change

GSK is changing. We have updated our branding to reflect our new purpose and growth ambitions. It combines science, technology and talent, while retaining key elements of our heritage.

Purpose and Strategy

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. We prioritise innovation in vaccines and specialty medicines, maximising the increasing opportunities to prevent and treat disease. At the heart of this is our R&D focus on the science of the immune system, human genetics and advanced technologies, and our world-leading capabilities in vaccines and medicines development. We will focus on four therapeutic areas: infectious diseases, HIV, oncology, and immunology. As a global biopharma leader, we invest heavily in our industry-leading pipeline of potential vaccines and specialty medicines that help us to get ahead of disease together.

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.
