Uniting science, talent, and technology to get ahead of disease together

At GSK, we have already delivered unprecedented change over the past four years, improving R&D, becoming a leader in Consumer Healthcare, strengthening our leadership, and transforming our commercial execution. Now, we’re making the most significant changes we’ve made to our business in over 20 years. We’re on track to separate and create two new companies in 2022: New GSK with a leading portfolio of vaccines and specialty medicines as well as R&D based on immune system and genetics science; and a new world-leading consumer healthcare company of loved and trusted brands.

With new ambition comes new purpose. For New GSK, this is to unite science, talent, and technology to get ahead of disease together – all with the clear ambition of delivering human health impact; stronger and more sustainable shareholder returns; and as a new GSK where outstanding people thrive.

Getting ahead means preventing disease as well as treating it. How we do all this is through our people and our culture. A culture that is ambitious for patients – so we deliver what matters better and faster; accountable for impact – with clear ownership of goals and support to succeed; and where we do the right thing. So, if you’re ready to improve the lives of billions, join us at this exciting moment in our journey. Join our challenge to get Ahead Together.

We’re looking for Future Leaders in Pharmaceuticals

Are you a Medical Doctor who wants to join our challenge to get Ahead Together? You can work towards this goal as part of our team, based in Pharmaceuticals. 

You’ll have a unique opportunity to apply the knowledge and clinical expertise you’ve gained during your medical training into a fast-paced, commercial setting, where you can help make a difference to patients across the globe.

We’re working to make our products accessible to more people, no matter where they live in the world or what they can afford to pay. Our medical and commercial teams play a big part in this by understanding our patients, consumers, and customers, and developing innovative business strategies. Through a series of challenging rotations, you’ll develop a range of essential medical affairs and commercial skills, while building a deep understanding of the governance behind the healthcare field.

Develop your career

If you’re a graduate with the talent and ambition to lead others, we’ll help you develop the expertise to become one of our Future Leaders.

You will embark on a truly immersive three-year rotational programme that will enable you to gain a broad and fascinating insight into our Pharmaceuticals business. It will also challenge and support you to grow personally and professionally

You’ll have three stretching rotations that will give you a breadth of experience across both medical and commercial areas of the business. You’ll spend time building on your medical training as a Medical Science Liaison and/or a Medical/Scientific Advisor, whilst also having the opportunity to develop your business acumen skills in Marketing, Sales or Market Access positions. 

As you improve your medical affairs skills, you’ll build your leadership potential too through a combination of mentoring, classroom sessions and on-the-job training. 

Tailored training – and great career progression

We’ll tailor your training and development to suit your talents and ambition, as well as our business needs, setting you up for success in your chosen niche. After you complete our Future Leaders Programme, you’ll have the skills to become a leader of the future. It all begins with a permanent role in Pharmaceuticals, which could be in sales, commercial excellence or even multi-channel marketing. There’s no limit to how far you can go with us – it’s up to you to prove yourself.

You’ll be excited by the thought of:

  • building your scientific knowledge, importance of patient safety, medical governance, business acumen skills and customer relationship skills on a tailored development programme 

  • representing our science behind the products to healthcare professionals

  • delivering projects in medical functions such as field based medical affairs, medical operations, or analytics

  • learning how to prioritise and manage multiple projects, objectives and deadlines

  • growing your medical, marketing, sales, project and customer management skills

  • shaping your own development and choosing courses in line with your needs and interests

  • learning new skills and concepts

 You’ll need:

  • to be a motivated and proactive medic with a talent for solving problems

  • self-discipline and drive

  • resilience and the ability to adapt to change

  • the confidence and courage to take key decisions

  • the interpersonal skills to connect with people and influence

  • the ability to understand complex clinical research and science behind products

  • interest to develop commercial awareness and business acumen

Our Future Leaders Programme is designed to accelerate the development of graduates who don’t have significant previous professional work experience in the area to which they are applying. Of course, many graduates who join the programme have worked while studying or after graduation. If you’ve already developed substantial experience working in a professional role in your sector, while you would be able to apply for this programme, you may also want to look at direct entry roles in our businesses, as these may be the best way to build on your existing skills and expertise and develop a career at GSK.
