GSK Launches Apprenticeship Scheme in UK

Apprenticeships will last between 2–4 years depending on the discipline. All roles will be a combination of on-the-job training and studying.

UK-based pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline has launched its multi-disciplinary apprenticeship scheme for young people of 16–24. The programme will offer positions at GSK's UK manufacturing, r&d and corporate sites.


The scheme will start in August with GSK taking on 40 apprentices in the first intake. The apprenticeships will be offered at GSK sites in Barnard Castle, Brentford, Irvine, Maidenhead, Montrose, Slough, Ulverston, Ware and Worthing.


GSK has historically taken on a number of engineering apprentices, however this new integrated scheme will offer IT, r&d, laboratory technician, manufacturing, supply chain management and artwork design opportunities.
