Regulatory Affairs Industrial Placement

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 does a Regulatory Affairs (consumer) industrial placement have to offer?

Regulatory affairs is the critical link between us, our products and external regulatory authorities such as the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) in the UK.

A regulatory affairs industrial placement at GSK will give you the opportunity to work on some of our trusted consumer brands such as; Panadol, Aquafresh and Beechams.  You’ll have the opportunity to help us ensure that our products are developed, licensed, manufactured, distributed and marketed in compliance with the relevant local legislation to help our customers and patients do more, feel better and live longer.

Key responsibilities include:

  • progressing the regulatory status of our products in such a manner as not to interfere with the marketing and development activities of the business
  • preparing accurate, high-quality submissions and ensuring all files and databases are effectively managed
  • maintaining relationships with external regulatory authorities/bodies to ensure the smooth and timely assessment of all applications
  • providing advice to marketing and supply chain on the regulatory implications of technical changes
  • responding to queries/complaints raised by consumers and healthcare professionals, and documenting reported adverse events

What’s in it for me?

A placement is a great chance to apply the skills you have learned at university in a ‘live’ role and learn new ones. The work will bring you into contact with people across the business, external organisations and the media, so you’ll be constantly developing your interpersonal skills. You’ll also build your organisational and problem-solving abilities.
