The first step is to fill out our application form, either online or via email. Think about your responses carefully and take time to provide us with a detailed description of your skills, experiences and ambitions.
You’ll be asked to demonstrate that you have the qualifications we’re looking for either through the questions asked or via CV upload. But we may also need you to tell us some practical things, like whether you’re eligible to work in the country your programme will be based in. Our recruitment teams will be checking through your application form, so it’s important the information you give us is accurate.
Additionally, we’ll ask you to tell us why it is that you want to join us. This gives you the chance to show us what drives you and just how motivated you are. Make it past this stage, and we may invite you to take some online tests.
Do your research. We want to hear why you want to work for us. Tell us what it is about GSK, and the programme you’ve selected, that made you want to work for us.
Don’t be afraid to sell yourself. Make sure that you include in your CV or application form details of your interests and experiences. Explain why they’re relevant to the role and why they make you ideal for your chosen programme.
Show attention to detail and clear thinking. Write your application in Word or a similar programme first, so you can check spelling and grammar, and manage your word count.
Update your CV. It’s likely you’ll be asked to provide a CV so don’t forget to write this as clearly and accurately as you can. You can always ask for help from your university’s careers service on the best way to format it too.
Express yourself clearly and concisely. Most of all, read the questions carefully. Look at what we are asking you. It’s good to get feedback – so ask your friends or family to review your answers.
Be accurate. Ensure that you meet the essential criteria for the programme that you are applying to and that you provide this information accurately. Please note that if you do not meet the essential requirements of the programme that you may receive an automatic response declining your application.Back to top
