Company Overview

At Lilly, we make a difference for people the world over by discovering, developing and delivering medicines that help people live longer, healthier and more active lives.

There we boast vibrant workforce made up of over 35 nationalities, speaking over 27 languages.

Established in 2010 to gain efficiencies in areas such as General Accounting, Purchase to Pay and Order to Cash, the GBS Cork quickly excelled in its financial mandate, allowing the Cork leadership to ask, how can we apply these processes to other areas of the business? And so the GBS we have today was born, evolving and expanding into diverse Business Service functions including Customer Meeting Services, Global HR Data Management, Medical Information, Clinical Trial Capabilities and more to come on stream across 2020.

At the GBS, it’s not just about what we do today, but how we can continuously improve and innovate for present and future operations. We view the development of our highly skilled workforce in much the same way and want to grow your role into an empowering and fulfilling career here at Lilly.
