Application for Glaxo Smith Kline Trainee Programme 2016
How to apply
This is one of the best 2016 Trainee Programme you can find. Find out more about which programmes we offer, where, and the application process.
As a first step, discover:
- Our Future Leaders programmes (see the end of each page to find out which countries have that programme).
- The countries that offer the programmes.
Not every country has the same entry requirements so please read the advice on each country page carefully.
The application process
We have developed a robust selection process to make sure that GSK is the right place for you to thrive.
You’ll find an explanation of the process below, but please note that not every country uses every stage of the process.
Many programmes have a closing date, but we strongly encourage you to apply as early as possible. Due to a high volume of applications we are now asking candidates to complete the early stages when we receive their application.
How does the application process work?
The first step is to fill out our application form, either online or via email. Think about your responses carefully and take time to provide us with a detailed description of your skills, experiences and ambitions.
In some countries, we ask you to take online tests to give us a better idea of your strengths and suitability for the programme. The tests are not timed and you will usually be given a few days in which to complete them.
To get a good understanding of you as an individual, we’ll invite you to an interview. Interviews may take place on the telephone, face to face or via a video call.
If you’ve been successful in the first three stages, we’ll invite you to our Assessment Centre. You’ll spend a day taking part in activities that give you a flavour of what it’s like to work in our world-leading healthcare organisation. You’ll also get the opportunity to meet our employees and learn more about what we do.
If you perform well at the Assessment Centre and meet our criteria, we’ll make you an offer to join our Future Leaders Programme. We take this process very seriously, and will support you through the offer process as best we can.
