I’ve now been part of GSK’s global vaccines team for nearly 10 years, where I help to coordinate and support projects worldwide or act as an administrative assistant. Over the years, the training I’ve been given at GSK has helped me to develop and my career to progress.
Experiencing GSK’s ‘disability confident’ commitment for myself
Due to the post-polio syndrome, my muscles tire easily and I cannot work for many hours at a time. Fortunately, GSK has been really flexible and I’ve had stints where I’ve worked part-time or from home, and colleagues have always encouraged me to ask for any help I may need. The great thing about GSK is that everyone is respected, no matter who they are or where they come from.
I really enjoy working at GSK. Our workplace is fabulously equipped for people with disabilities. My job is very interactive: I’m communicating with colleagues all over the world so there is a constant cultural enrichment. I have the same transparency with colleagues in India as I do with colleagues in the US. I enjoy having to adapt to different ways of working and I learn something new every day.
