TECH Business Partner, Wharehouse and Logistics

Explain to us what you do at GSK 

I am working at Vaccines TECH as a Business Partner for Global Industrial Operations especially for Warehouse Management. I support warehouse people (from Belgium and international sites) not only on their day-to-day jobs but also on projects from a TECH perspective.

What do you like most about working at GSK?

According to me, there are two best things about working at GSK.

The first thing is the variety of people I work with and the diversity of business processes I can learn about. One day I can work on an issue encountered in the Belgian commercial warehouse and the day after I may work on a spare part project for a foreign site.

There is always an opportunity to learn something!

The second thing I like the most about my job at GSK is working within an international environment. Each site has its own cultural specificities and I have a lot of fun working with people with different backgrounds. Working with different cultures opens your mind and teaches you that some prejudices about a country are false and other true (I won’t tell which ones ;)

Why did you come to GSK? 

During my studies, I had the opportunity to carry out a thesis-project in a biotechnology start-up. This experience made me discover Biotechs and Life Sciences sectors; which I liked a lot. So, when I was dropped in the adult life I applied for jobs in those sectors and that’s how I knocked at GSK doors.

Then, why a Tech function?

TECH was a big unknown for me because I hadn’t studied this topic at university and I am not “geeky”. Since I am a curious person and I like discovering new things, I thought that Tech would be fun. I don’t regret my choice!

What would you say to someone thinking of joining us? 

If you are looking for a job which gives you the opportunity to work with a variety of people, to learn about interesting business flows and to develop yourself, don’t hesitate to join us!

Also, some of us are funny so you’ll work in a friendly atmosphere. ;)
