Industry Based Learning Program


Our Industry Based Learning (IBL) program suits undergraduate University students in their penultimate or final year of study upon commencement of the program. This twelve-month, full time IBL program is the perfect opportunity for students to launch their career, offering invaluable hands-on work experience in a friendly and supportive environment. Upon completion, IBL’s will have built on their university learning and gained a competitive edge for all future career paths.

Our IBL program suits students who want a career with real purpose. Interns benefit from a rich variety of training and individual mentoring while gaining genuine experience in your chosen field. We have designed our program to ensure that you will work closely with your manager and professionals who are passionate about their work and are eager to pass on their learning and knowledge. This way, you will get to develop great skills that are crucial for your future success.

You will benefit from:

  • Being involved in interesting work and adding value to the business
  • Opportunity to work on key projects to build core technical and business skills
  • Being actively involved in career networking forums
  • Access to various internal and external training opportunities
  • Reporting directly to a line manager
  • Involvement in GSK’s staff volunteering program to help the community

Our interns need ambition, commercial awareness and a self-motivated, proactive approach. We’re looking for clear, effective communicators who can quickly build rapport with a wide range of people. It’s important that you can adapt to change and keep focused. While you have the drive and confidence to trust your own judgment, you’re a real team player who actively collaborates with others.

If you would like to register your interest for the 2020 Industry Based Learning Program, follow the link to our expression of interest. You will be contacted directly when applications open (expected to open in late July/early August 2019 for a January 2020 start date).
