Supply Chain Future Leaders Programme
We are one of the world’s leading healthcare companies. GSK researches, develops, manufactures and distributes life-saving vaccines, prescription medicines and consumer health products such as Sensodyne, Savlon and Panadol.
The size and scope of our organisation allows our people to answer some of the biggest questions facing everyone on the planet – questions about future healthcare needs.

Where can I work?
Our Supply Chain Future Leaders Programme is available across the UK and Internationally. Initial roles are within your local country. But we’re a truly global organisation, so you may find the opportunity to gain international experience in the future.
What’s expected of me?
We’ll expect you to get involved in managing projects and prioritising a variety of tasks effectively. This means you’ll need to build working relationships with people at all levels of our organisation. In addition, you’ll analyse information and report your findings, so we can identify and understand trends, insights and facts. We’ll also look to you to help research and source this information. Not least, we want you to keep developing new skills and knowledge wherever you find the opportunity.
What do I need to succeed?
You'll need ambition, a genuine interest in the healthcare industry and a self-motivated, proactive approach. We’re looking for clear, effective communicators who can quickly build a rapport with a wide range of people. It’s also important that you can adapt to change and keep focused when the pressure is on. As rotations may be located in different sites, flexibility with mobility would be expected. While you’ve the drive and confidence to trust your own judgement, you’re a real team player who actively collaborates with others. In addition, you’ll need an analytical mind, a talent for multi-tasking and the ability to influence others.
