Gilead in the UK and Ireland

As part of a rapidly growing science-driven organisation, colleagues at Gilead are committed to creating a healthier world by bringing urgently needed medicines to treat life-threatening diseases.

We are proud to have some of the most talented colleagues from across the research, healthcare, pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and business sectors working together and supporting each other to together improve care for people with unmet needs.

We are seeking individuals who are interested in joining an intellectually stimulating, socially responsible company with a track record of success. Regardless of geography or function, each person plays a critical and visible role in our work.

Inclusion and Diversity

Inclusion and diversity is key to our success as a company.

Building an inclusive and diverse workforce is critical to enabling Gilead’s mission and ultimately will help us create a better, healthier world. Our success depends on every one of our employees, and the ways in which we differ are among our greatest sources of strength. These include visible and non-visible attributes, such as race, gender, gender identity, age, ethnicity, people with disabilities, appearance, thinking styles, beliefs, nationality, sexual orientation, and education, among others. Inclusion at Gilead is a core value that means creating and fostering a work environment where our differences are valued and where people feel involved, respected, and connected.

We are highly committed to creating an inclusive culture that enables all people to do their best work and reflects the diversity of our patients.

Our Employee Resource Groups foster a sense of belonging and inclusion that can spark innovation, accelerate employee development and make a difference inside, as well as outside, of Gilead. We have three Employee Resource Groups in the UK and Ireland: Women at Gilead, the Pride Alliance and Global Leadership Organisation of Black Employees.

Compensation, Benefits and Wellbeing

Our employees work to help improve the lives and health of people every day. That’s why we’re committed to providing competitive rewards and comprehensive benefits that support a healthy life for you and your family when you join our team.


We offer competitive compensation and rewards programmes to reflect and recognize employee contributions to the company. We offer pay that is competitive within the biopharmaceutical industry, and we carefully consider market range for all of our compensation and rewards programs, including base pay, bonus and stock awards. We conduct an annual review of employee compensation to ensure that our pay practices are race- and gender-neutral, and we also commission an annual global pay equity study to gain a more comprehensive view of pay parity across the organisation.


Gilead is committed to providing competitive and comprehensive benefits that make a real difference for your health, wellness and financial wellbeing. The benefits we provide vary for each of our global locations and typically include offerings such as healthcare, income protection, retirement savings plans and time off.

Our goal is to provide total rewards packages that set our employees up for success, both inside and outside the workplace.

We care about the wellbeing of our employees and are committed to supporting that journey with a variety of programs and learning opportunities, including:
