The scope and breadth of our business is reflected in the range of apprenticeship opportunities we offer to talented and ambitious individuals. Our apprenticeships will give you hands-on experience in your chosen discipline and the opportunity to play a key role in contributing to the future success of the company. Whilst you learn on-the-job from industry leaders, earn a competitive salary, you will also study towards a nationally recognised qualification. The GSK programme aims to lead to a professional qualification within 2 to 3 years, allowing you to quickly reach your career goals!

Development and benefits

Like everyone at GSK, our apprentices are rewarded for their work and recognised for their achievements.

Every career path is structured differently, to give you the best possible understanding of that specific area of the organisation, as well as an insight into GSK's overall business.

Regardless of the apprenticeship that you join, you'll have the same great opportunities to learn-on-the-job from experts in your chosen area, study towards nationally recognised qualifications, earn a competitive salary plus you'll benefit from our TotalReward package too!

Training and Development:

We want to give you the right opportunities and support to help you realize your potential and as an apprentice your training and development will consist of different elements. Most importantly you will gain skills and knowledge from learning on the job. You will also have a dedicated manager and a mentor, as well as the more formal element of your apprenticeship where you study towards nationally recognised qualifications from BTECs to Degrees! The qualification that you gain and the type of study will depend on the apprenticeship programme which you join.

To support all of this, you will have access to a community of apprentices and apprentice alumni through our NxtGen network – an apprentice for apprentice network. You'll also have the chance to meet and network more widely by taking part in Development weeks each year.


You'll not only get a competitive salary when you join us, you'll benefit from our TotalReward package too. It's designed to invest in your development, help you save for the future, and boost your health and wellbeing.

The package comprises of:
  • A competitive base salary
  • An annual bonus
  • A great holiday allowance plus a day out of the office to give back to local communities called an Orange Day
  • Benefit programmes benchmarked against industry standards
  • A recognition programme to reward exceptional work by you and your team
And more!

Not only will you receive your total reward package, at GSK you can benefit from knowing the work you do is making an impact. Everyone at GSK works on the products and projects that allows us to help patients and consumer do more, feel better, and live longer. That's a benefit you can't buy!
