GSK’s Internship Programme is identified internally as our Industry Based Learning (IBL) programme and is developed for undergraduate University students in their penultimate or final year of study.

This twelve-month, full time Internship programme is the perfect opportunity for students to get their career off to a flying start by gaining meaningful hands-on work experience in a global healthcare business in a friendly and supportive environment.

What roles are available and how do I apply?

Applications are now open for our 2023 IBL Internship intake! Internships for 2023 will fall under one of the following business streams. At application stage we ask that you only apply for one stream.  Don’t worry if you are interested in multiple streams as you do get a chance to indicate multiple preferences as part of the application process.

The application process

There are a few stages to our application process.

Online application form

Our application form doesn’t take long to complete. We’ll ask you to upload your CV, complete details about your studies and confirm your eligibility to work in the market where your chosen programme is based.

World of GSK online assessment

If you meet the eligibility criteria you will be invited to complete our ‘World of GSK’ online assessment. This is an online assessment that will help us determine your strengths and suitability to become one of our Future Leaders. It will also give you an insight into what we do and how we work.

You’ll watch videos featuring some of our colleagues who will tell you about what they do at GSK. We’ll then set up scenarios and ask you how you would manage the situation.

After you complete the World of GSK assessment, we’ll let you know if you’ve made it to the next stage. You’ll also get personalised feedback to help you develop your strengths further.

GSK life job simulation

The next part of the process includes a GSK Life job simulation where we’ll see how you might perform in your chosen programme. This is also your chance to get a feel for what it might be like to work with us.

You’ll be presented with a scenario with some key business facts and asked to respond through video, writing and multiple choice. We’ll also ask you more about why you want to work here and, if you’ve applied for a technical role, we’ll ask you some technical questions. This assessment will require you to also record some video responses to a number of "strengths based" questions.
