Carolina's experience at GSK
"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 understand our business as it continues to change, take accountability and lead others, we’ll equip you with the experience to become one of our Future Leaders.
Over two years, our 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. In the first two rotations you will explore organisation design, employee/industrial relations, project management, data analytics, talent, leadership development and reward. You’ll also benefit from a further rotation with an HR Business Leader, strategically supporting their business leadership team to develop your experience and commercial awareness.
Your rotations will be stretching and we’ll support you every step of the way with formal and informal learning and mentoring.

There were two main reasons why I chose GSK. The first was because of the quality of the Future Leaders programme. The second reason was that I felt GSK had the best cultural fit with my own values.
