"I recently made a recruitment video for the Argentina market and my advice was if you want to have a stretching career where you'll learn a lot of things from experts, professionals and be really challenged every day, but working for a good reason, GSK is the place to be"
Develop your career
If you’re a graduate with the talent and ambition to lead others, we’ll equip you with the experience to become one of our Future Leaders.
Over two years, our Future Leaders graduate programme will challenge and support you to grow professionally and personally. You’ll have three rotations to grow your expertise as a HR generalist exploring employee/industrial relations, organisational design, talent, leadership development and reward. You’ll also benefit from a rotation partnering with a HR Business Leader, strategically supporting their business aligned leadership team, building breadth of experience and developing your commercial awareness.
Your rotations will be stretching, but we’ll support you every step of the way with formal and informal learning, as well as coaching.
