What do you envision for your child’s or student’s future?... GSK offers a great work environment, a career development path, competitive compensation, and an Associate’s degree with no tuition costs to hard working individuals who want to jump start their career.

GSK’s Apprentice Program is designed to train and develop the next generation of technicians and engineers to work at our science and manufacturing sites. Our apprenticeships are entry level positions that have been developed to meet business needs and fill capability gaps.

Our apprenticeships offer your children and students:

  • Full-time employment with one-on-one, on-the-job training and mentoring from industry leaders
  • The opportunity to earn an Associate’s degree in a job-related field, free of charge
  • Pay for time at work and pay for attendance at college
  • Comprehensive medical benefits and a retirement pension plan
  • Portable, industry-recognized credentials

What qualifications are required?

The basic qualifications for apprenticeships may vary by role. Applicants must have a high school diploma or equivalency diploma (such as TACC or GED) to be eligible for an apprentice role. Your child or student must be able to commute on a daily basis to the GSK worksite and related instruction facility. Explore our different apprenticeships to learn more about the qualifications and responsibilities for each apprentice role.

What types of training and support are provided?

Our apprentices are supported by a rigorous 3 or 4 year development program of training and development to help them succeed. The Training and Development program for apprentices consists of learning on the job from industry experts, an assigned line manager, a mentor or buddy, along with more formal training as part of an apprenticeship.

What’s next after the apprentice completes the program?

Apprenticeships are an essential component of our talent pipeline. We establish all of our apprenticeships with the ambition of offering a permanent position upon the apprentice’s successful completion of the program. The roles that our apprentices transition into may vary depending on business needs. But our commitment to their development does not end after their apprenticeship - some apprentices may have the potential to extend their apprenticeships to complete a Bachelors degree and beyond.
