Short Kaizen (up to six weeks) opportunities may exist for high performing graduates where business need and development opportunity are identified

GSK also provides a generous personal training budget to support your personal development. 

What You Will Do

At GSK you will be working at Manufacturing Sites that supply medicines to patients around the world.

As an Engineering graduate you will be part of the Engineering department involved in ensuring the production facilities at these sites operate reliably and compliantly. You can expect to develop your knowledge and gain experience in: 

  • Projects managing new equipment from design, factory acceptance testing, installation and validation.
  • Asset management and maintenance (condition-based monitoring, predictive maintenance, data analysis etc.).
  • Increasing manufacturing efficiencies through improved equipment performance, reliability, and safety systems.
  • Providing day-to-day support for equipment issues, trouble-shooting breakdowns and risk assessments for maintenance tasks.
  • Energy management, environmental sustainability and cost improvement projects.
  • Working with an engineering team to support multi-skilled technicians and operators. 

Through this you will gain hands-on knowledge of technology, the business and the role Engineers play in supplying medicines to our patients. 

Tailored training – and great career progression:

We will tailor your training and development to suit your talents and ambition, as well as our business needs, setting you up for success. After you complete our Future Leaders programme, you will have the skills to become a leader of the future, making sure that we make the right products and deliver them to the right place.

  • Working with (and in) cross-functional, multi-cultural teams - delivering business critical projects.
