Finance Industrial Placement

Finance supports everything we do here at GSK and, if you join us, you’ll use numbers to make a difference. We offer an independent viewpoint, driving decision-making and strategy across our organisation. We maximise profitability by managing cost, cash and return on investment.

This is your opportunity to be part of a team that prides itself on delivering excellence!

If you have passion for numbers and drive to make decisions based on your analyses, we are the right placement for you. We can promise a great learning and development experience throughout your year with us! An accounting or finance background is not necessary as you will gain all the skills you require on the job.

Each of our placements in finance is as different as the areas they support: Tax, Transfer Pricing, Consumer business finance, Compliance, Finance Capabilities. Wherever you are placed you will be guaranteed to gain both technical and interpersonal skills, for example:

  • Working with stakeholders at different levels across the business
  • Questioning and challenging current processes to drive improvement
  • Presentation skills
  • Working cross-functionally with other teams
  • Contributing to month-end reporting packs for senior stakeholders
  • Analysing data and identifying issues
  • Gaining an insight into what finance means in industry
  • Developing your knowledge of financial systems and processes
  • Building an understanding of drivers of profit and performance
  • Opportunities to be involved in short and longer-term projects throughout the year

We are looking for people who have strong communication skills, the ability to be challenged and are motivated by the idea of a career in finance with GSK.
