About us

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.  Central to all that we do are our talented and motivated professionals.  Today more than 1200 are based at our Global Business Solutions centre in Little Island, Cork.  There we boast a vibrant workforce made up of over 35 nationalities, speaking over 27 languages.

Established in 2010 to gain efficiencies in Finance 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, still leading in finance, but also evolving and expanding into diverse Business Service functions.

This, along with the current physical expansion of the Little Island campus, means there has never been a more exciting time to be part of the GBS story!  The new Island Hall facility will extend our overall capacity where Lilly will continue to offer a premium workspace across both buildings.

Our benefits package includes healthcare, pension and life assurance benefits, subsidised canteen, wellbeing facilities, Educational Assistance, travel subsidies, car-pooling incentives, bike to work scheme, on-site parking and much more.

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.  

Above all, it’s about being part of an open, welcoming and inclusive culture, one that is further enhanced by the dedication of our committees - Culture Club, Diversity & Inclusion, Sports & Social, Corporate Social Responsibility, Health Safety & Environment and Food.

“We see Cork as an integral part of our productivity agenda.  If you are excited by new opportunity and new scope, you are working at the right place.” – Dave Ricks, CEO Lilly
