Industrial Placement - Engineering

Who are we?

One of the world’s leading healthcare companies, GSK discovers, 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 and questions about building a responsive, innovative, global business to meet them – as well as questions about their own personal and professional growth.

What Engineering Industrial placements are on offer?

We need:

  • Automation engineers
  • Chemical engineers
  • Electrical engineers and
  • Mechanical engineers

to work in our global manufacturing and supply (GMS) division for 12 months.

What’s in it for me?

In GMS we are leading the way in the rapid commercialisation of new pharmaceutical and consumer healthcare products from research and development pilot scale, through to full scale manufacturing. We’re also continuously improving our existing processes - introducing innovative technologies that are transforming the way we manufacture our healthcare products. Whether that’s continuous tablet manufacturing or developing flat-packed factories in a box – we’re changing the healthcare landscape.

During your placement you’ll have a line manager who will support and challenge you to succeed, you’ll have set projects that require you to work in multi-discipline teams and you’ll learn what it’s like working in an operating factory.

If you want to be at the fore-front of precision engineering or leading the way in healthcare manufacturing techniques, our summer placements or industrial placements could be for you.
