Tech within GSK:
Tech at GSK is undergoing a period of change and transformation: GSK has the ambition to become a leader within the pharmaceutical industry in the application of digital technologies to drive a step change in performance and competitive advantage.
As an organization, GSK is looking to create maximum strategic and operational value from our five key tech capabilities: Software Engineering, Cyber Security, Data Science, Cloud Infrastructure, and Product Management. Within these strategic areas, we see this work touching upon established and emergent technologies, including the transition to digitized data (vs. paper-based), Data Science and Analytics, next-generation / cloud computing, sensors and the internet-of-things, machine learning, and artificial intelligence.
What to expect on the Tech Future Leaders Program:
The aim of the program is to provide an accelerated framework of opportunities, learning the ins and outs of business processes and the strategies behind delivering key tech solutions to drive business operations. Our Future Leaders play a key role in unlocking the value of emerging technologies to transform the way GSK interacts with is employees, patients and customers. Future Leaders may work within the Software Engineering (Infrastructure, APIs, Data Engineering, Cloud Architecture), Data Science and Analytics, Cyber Security, and Product Management streams. Additional areas of opportunity are in innovations, strategy and architecture, business process improvement, analytics and/or service management.
You will get plenty of support from the program to help reach your potential and you will not be alone. You will be joining an international community of like-minded graduate techies who, alongside their day jobs, help shape and run the program. Some of the program’s recent graduates have helped run global tech debates with external leading experts, produced podcasts, facilitated learnathons, managed internal ted-talks, and organized hackathons.
Our Future Leaders Program is designed to accelerate the development of graduates who don’t have significant previous professional work experience in the area to which they are applying. Of course, many graduates who join the program have worked while studying or after graduation. If you’ve already developed substantial experience working in a professional role in your sector, while you would be able to apply for this program, you may also want to look at direct entry roles in our businesses, as these may be the best way to build on your existing skills and expertise and develop a career at GSK.
