Are you interested in a career in the sciences but don't want to go down the traditional route? GlaxoSmithKline have just launched a new Pharmaceutical Technical apprenticeship programme. It’s a three year programme that leads to a foundation degree in Applied Chemical Science Technology from Kent University, UK. Depending on your performance and ambitions, you could progress onto a Bachelors degree or a Masters, all while getting paid work experience. The academic side will be a blend of distance learning and study time both in and out of work.

This apprenticeship provides practical on-the-job experience, a competitive base salary, an internationally recognised qualification and the benefits that go along with GSK employment.

To be eligible to apply you must have obtained the following in your Leaving Cert:

  • passes in five Higher level subjects (must include Chemistry)
  • minimum grade C in Ordinary Level English
  • minimum grade C in Ordinary Level Maths

The apprenticeship will take place in the GlaxoSmithKline manufacturing site in Cork, commencing in September 2016.

Deadlines for applications is 31 August and can be done online.
