What does a Digital Communications industrial placement have to offer?

Communications at GSK is all about providing relevant, up-to-minute information to support our strategic priorities in the global marketplace. This means engaging and inspiring employees and managing our company image and reputation by developing and delivering consistent messages to patients and doctors, shareholders, the media and the general public.

The Digital Communications IP role offers the successful candidate an opportunity to help to drive GSK's digital engagement around the world. Some of the key activities that the student would get involved in are:

  • Helping to develop, maintain and improve the company's external corporate websites and social media channels

  • Helping to monitor and reply to comments and questions in GSK’s Facebook page and Twitter account

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.
