GSK to create 5,000 new jobs at Stevenage

Drugs giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) is looking to extend its Stevenage hub in a move that is set to create up to 5,000 new jobs.

GSK says the £400m plan for its Hertfordshire facility, where it currently conducts research & development, could create thousands of highly skilled jobs in the next five to 10 years.

According to a report on bbc.co.uk, Stevenage is already one of GSK’s two global R&D hubs, and hosts the UK’s largest work into cell and gene therapy.

The development of the new site is expected to begin in 2022.
