We’ve been investing millions of pounds in state of the art pharmaceutical manufacturing equipment. The amount of data these machines are capable of collecting needs organising, studying and insights drawn and recommendations made to enable us to improve our manufacturing performance. And our data science apprentice has a key role to play in this!

You’ll receive tailored on-the-job training from our in-house experts, combined with early responsibility to help you develop and progress.  The apprenticeship is 4 years long and you’ll be working towards a degree (BSc) in Data Science.

Working with both your line and programme manager, we want to identify the right opportunities to help you succeed in the short term and throughout your career with us.  You will also be assigned a buddy or a mentor who will be there to offer support and guidance throughout your apprenticeship.

You will work across the site combining on-the-job learning with a programme of training and development. Your role will involve:

  • Working across a variety of projects, providing technical data solutions to a range of issues
  • Learning about and using a range of analytical tools to undertake different types of analyses
  • Collecting managing, cleansing, abstracting and aggregating data
  • Conducting a range of analytical studies on that data.
  • Developing a good understanding of data structures and database systems

You’ll be excited by the thought of working collaboratively with colleagues from manufacturing, technical, laboratory, validation, engineering, logistics and planning – and using your expertise in maths to help our patients and consumer do more, feel better and live longer!

And when you complete your apprenticeship? You could be offered a role at GSK if you have demonstrated the skills and behaviours we look for in our locally grown talent. You could even go on to further study post programme whilst in a permanent role at GSK.
