Key attractions
GSK has one of the strongest pipelines in the entire industry, but we have set ourselves a big task of doubling that pipeline and delivering around five new medicines each year. To reach that goal, our decisions are being driven by scientific advances, which opens up great opportunities for scientists. Last year, we spent more than £3 billion researching new medicines through our global research sites. This feeds into the global manufacturing and supply network, a hugely complex and high-tech operation consisting of 80 sites across 37 countries supplying 1200 different brands to over 140 markets.  GSK is continuously evolving as demonstrated by our recent acquisition of the dermatology group Stiefel Laboratories and the formation of ViiV, our joint venture with Pfizer focusing on HIV and Aids therapies. Because of this geographical and business diversity we’re in a great position to give you the support you need to develop, both personally and professionally. There are no limits on where your career could lead.
