GSK Industrial Placements – Get the experience you need while continuing to learn

02 July 2018

With a GSK Industrial Placement on your CV, your career is bound to start with a bang.

University students nation-wide are all aware of the same reality – that you can’t get a job without experience, and that you can’t get experience without a job. This problem – known to some as the ‘permission paradox’ – is the biggest issue facing students hoping to enter the job market. Fortunately, we have the solution – industrial placements.

Every year, we offer hundreds of 12-month placements to students looking to gain experience in business, science and engineering roles. These placements give passionate students the chance to gain experience, take on real responsibility and see their projects come to life. With roles available in everything from engineering and research and development to sales and human resources – and with eleven locations around the UK accepting industrial placement students – we offer something for everyone.

Many of the students who come to GSK for industrial placements do not have any similar work experience on their CV. This doesn’t matter. At GSK, what we care about is that our industrial placement students are passionate, innovative and driven. We are a company that values work ethic and ambition. We are eager to form professional relationships with the next generation of businesspeople, scientists and engineers, helping to nurture and develop their skills to make them the ideal candidates for graduate positions.

GSK’s industrial placements provide students with the perfect environment in which to push themselves, and students will be given the opportunity to make a real impact on the company while working alongside high-level executives and professionals.
