I secured a pharmaceutical marketing internship with GlaxoSmithKline in my final summer at University and after this 12-week internship secured a place on GSK’s Future leaders’ program. This led to a role as a Brand Manager with responsibilities including leading the patient support programme for the launch of the brand’s two new formulations.
