“We want to represent the modern world that we live, work and compete in, so every single employee can feel supported when they come to work at GSK and give the best of themselves every day.” – Emma Walmsley, Chief Executive of GSK
Adam Mallalieu, Veteran and now Vice President, Head of Corporate Security and Investigations at GSK shares why GSK is a great choice for Veterans and service leavers:
We recognise that our people are the differentiator in achieving success, and at GSK, we pride ourselves in providing the personal and collective development that is needed to be successful at work.
We value the expertise that many HM Forces, Police and Civil Servants can bring to GSK, such as knowledge, experience and diversity of thinking. This has encouraged us to recruit former Service personnel as part of our recruitment strategy.
GSK has many roles suited to former Service personnel where they are able to bring transferable skills into the workplace. Areas such as the Supply Chain, Manufacturing, Logistics and Distribution, Security and Investigations, Personnel and General Management all have characteristics that would have been similar in the Services, be that proven leadership and decision-making, a disciplined approach, technical skills and expertise, adaptability and agility, and the ability to focus and prioritise on the most important issues.
