Co-op Program

Co-op Program
GSK currently offers co-op opportunities during the academic calendar year to college students who are currently enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate or Ph.D level degree program.  We focus on identifying high-quality, challenging rotations and recruiting the very best candidates to fill these positions. This will allow us to fully evaluate students and identify any suitable entry-level positions available within the business.

Our co-op program is designed to recruit and hire top quality students to feed the talent pipeline for GSK. These opportunities are available across business units, at multiple GSK sites around the country.  We typically have roles available in many disciplines including Science, Engineering, Business, IT, and more.  Please see our available openings for specific disciplines.

Work cycles
Co-op placements typically run 4-12 months throughout the academic calendar year and require the student to work between 35-40 hours/week. All positions are paid.   Opportunities are available based on business needs and aim to follow academic calendars, however cycle times vary.
