  • Company Overview

    At Eli 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, circa 500 of whom are based at our Global Business Solutions centre in Little Island, Cork.

    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, still leading in finance, but also evolving and expanding into diverse Business Service functions including Customer Meeting Services, Global HR Data Management, Medical Information and more to come on stream across 2019 and 2020.

    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! Mirroring the existing Island House building, the new Island Hall facility will extend our overall capacity where Lilly will continue to offer a premium workspace across both buildings, complete with healthcare, pension and life assurance benefits, subsidised canteen, wellbeing facilities, 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.

    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, a dedicated Learning & Development service and Educational Assistance schemes all await you.

    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
