United Kingdom

We are proud of our British heritage. Although the company formed in 2000 following the merger of GlaxoWellcome plc and SmithKline Beecham plc, our history goes back to the 1700s. Today, we are the largest pharmaceutical company by value in the UK and make a significant contribution to the nation’s economy.

The UK is home to around 15% of our global workforce, across 17 sites. This includes our global headquarters in Brentford, west London, as well as a significant commercial, R&D and manufacturing operation nationwide. This allows us to research, produce and supply medicines, vaccines and consumer products to patients and customers all over the world.

So what does this mean for you?

We have a number of career paths available in the UK, which means we need a range of candidates for the positions available.
