GlaxoSmithKline launch scheme to increase graduate opportunities

Published: Thursday, 03 March 2011   Category: All Graduate job news

A leading pharmaceutical company has announced plans to increase graduate opportunities within the firm.

GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), one of the world's largest medical companies, announced the plans for an increase in graduate vacancies yesterday (March 2nd).

As part of the plans, GSK will reimburse graduates' tuition fees to the amount of £27,000, which will be the cost of a top-price degree (at £9,000 per year).

In a statement, GSK said they are hoping to increase the number of graduate opportunities at the company, which currently number between 50 and 100.

"These changes are being introduced as part of the company’s ongoing efforts to attract, recruit and retain the best talent and reflect the changing environment in the UK for students," the firm said.

"The company believes these measures will help ensure that GSK remains a highly desirable place for graduates to consider working upon leaving university."

GSK had an annual worldwide revenue of £28.36 billion in 2009.
