I'm applying for the R&D future leaders programme for GSK, and wondering how many other people are applying? If so how are your applications going?

HI, I applied 3 weeks ago and I am still waiting also.
I applied Regulatory Affairs. They close the applications for this scheme.
I hope we hear back form GSK soon.

Another vague email from GSK "We just wanted to let you know that we are still in the process of reviewing your application. Please be assured that we will contact you at our earliest opportunity with an outcome on your application.

The next stage of the process would be a video interview and the Assessment Centre is due to be held on 18th & 19th January 2016."

Anyone had better news?

It was 5 questions and all but 1 was competency. So motivation/leaderhsip, innovation, team work. so remember to just use examples and you'll be fine. The questions are not very difficult is just a weird situation siting in front of a webcam. hope this helps, what have you applied for?

Ok, good luck. What sort of questions did you get? Was it similar to what fuzzmuzz mentioned?

I am still waiting for the video interview email.
I think they are all very similar to be honest, no preparation needed. It is a very strange way to interview applicants. Good luck :-)

There was 5 questions and 4 of them were competency based, for example: "describe a time when you adapted to change" or "describe a time you showed leadership skills". And then the other Q was specific to your role, which I guess can vary.

What did you apply for? Hope that helped.
