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.  Therefore, with the sole purpose of employee progression, weekly Manager 1:1s, a dedicated Learning & Development service and Educational Assistance schemes all await you.
