Want to solve some of the world’s biggest health challenges?

With over 300 years of innovation, we’re a science-led global healthcare company that delivers billions of innovative products each year. Join us and help millions of people do more, feel better, live longer.

We’re looking for leaders of the future in Manufacturing operations

Are you a graduate with strong problem-solving and influencing skills and a keen interest in production, quality and supply challenges? If so, you will, in this role, help us get vaccines to people in 90% of the world’s countries.

In this highly scientific Manufacturing operations and quality (Vaccines) function we manufacture, formulate, fill, pack, control, release and deliver vaccines safely – a process that takes 15 to 18 months and uses cutting-edge technology. It’s a challenge that touches on four very different activities: manufacturing operations, technical services, quality and supply chain management. Different challenges arise at every stage, so every working day is different. These challenges might include transporting delicate biological materials that need special handling, overseeing quality throughout the manufacturing process, or managing a complex supply chain to ensure that vaccines are received exactly when they’re needed.

Develop your career

Over two years, our Future Leaders graduate programme will challenge and support you to grow professionally and personally. You’ll have stretching rotations that will give you an insightful experience into the manufacturing side of our vaccines business. Through these placements, you’ll develop your expertise in production, quality and technical services or supply chain management, while broadening your global business perspective.

What will you do?

In GSK Vaccines, we commit to ensuring the quality, safety and reliable supply of our products to the patient.

To achieve this objective, our Technical Services Team is key to ensure smooth operation and maintenance of systems, equipment and processes to minimize downtime.

  • You will be part of the Engineering Team that ensure reliable plant utilities services of heating, cooling, steam, gas and air.
  • Support project and commissioning of utility systems by reviewing new commissioning plans
  • Equipment troubleshooting, lead equipment failure investigation to identify root cause to equipment/system breakdown
  • Lead equipment reliability improvement initiatives
  • Provide engineering support to routine planned maintenance activities
  • Participate/Lead Process Hazard assessment for relevant engineering changes  

You’ll be excited by the thought of:

  • Get a good understanding of all areas of our Vaccines business on a tailored development programme 
  • Discover how manufacturing, the quality function, process science and supply chain work together
  • Learn about the cutting-edge technologies used in vaccines manufacturing
  • Follow our vaccines through the entire manufacturing process
  • Gain valuable people management experience or exposure
  • Learn about the challenges of working in a highly regulated and controlled environment
  • Be part of a diverse network, working with graduates from all over the world

This career path attracts graduates from chemical engineering discipline.

Our Future Leaders programme is designed to accelerate the development of graduates who don’t have significant previous professional work experience in the area to which they are applying.  Of course, many graduates who join the programme have worked while studying or after graduation.  If you’ve already developed substantial experience working in a professional role in your sector, while you would be able to apply for this programme, you may also want to look at direct entry roles in our businesses, as these may be the best way to build on your existing skills and expertise and develop a career at GSK.

What We Can Offer You

GSK’s dedication to the wellbeing of our employees is reflected in the benefits we offer; including healthcare for yourself and dependents, performance related bonus, long term incentives and a host of other flexible offerings you can tailor to your own preferences. We also offer a range of employee health and wellbeing programs including our truly unique Partnership for Prevention program, a global commitment by GSK to provide all employees with up to 40 preventative healthcare services bringing to life our mission to: do more, feel better and live longer.
