Veterans' leaders program

Working at GSK

As a market leader in global healthcare, GSK understands the value a military veteran can bring to our workplace. Do you want to use the skills you developed in the military to help GSK improve the quality of human life by enabling people to do more, feel better and live longer?

We are investing millions to transform the way we deliver healthcare to patients -  all driven by our core values: patient-focus, transparency, respect for people and integrity – and we need you to help us to achieve this vision.

My experience with GSK has been enriching. GSK gave me the opportunity to continue conducting meaningful and challenging work after my transition from active duty service. This allowed me to continue utilizing my leadership and supply chain skills while learning the technical field of bio-pharmaceuticals. "
