GSK, Innocent drinks, Imperial College and Fullers, an overview.

Extracts from this document...


GSK GSK is health organisations who study illnesses and diseases all around the world. They make medicines to help people and then sell those medicines. It is international; they have bases in the United Kingdom and USA. It is important for them to be based internationally because it gives them an advantage to study diseases not only from one land, they can get more people knowing about it and people get more knowledge of what dieses they are suffering from. The type of people they would need is Clinical specialists, Communication specialists, engineers, manufacturers, law, Doctor, nurses and pharmacists. The UK site is based around the central part of London, where there are many people looking for jobs in areas such as the GSK. Being planted in near the Thames gives the visitors something to look out for then finding directions to reach the base. It is also located near by the motorway which makes it easily approachable by car. Research Scientist would be working for the GSK at a salary from around about �20,000 a year and the Professors could be earning up to over �60,000. They would be researching life science; physiology, plant science and pharmacology. They could be carrying out experiments and developing ways to improve existing products and testing new ones. Pharmacologist would be studying the effects of drugs and chemical compounds. They would be carrying out experiments to research and discover new drugs to prevent illnesses. The qualifications needed to be pharmacology which would be the most relevant to have, biochemistry, physiology and microbiology would also be accepted by employers. ...read more.


The roles enrolled in the university would be jobs like professors and researchers; they would be using science on an every day basest because they would be teaching, experimenting and researching subjects surrounded by science. A physicist would be working in two different areas 'Theoretical analysis' where they would be developing new ideas using computers and mathematical modelling techniques to explain. They would also be doing experimental research, doing experiments. The qualifications you would need relevant postgraduates qualifications such as an MSc, MPhil or PhD. Starting salary would be somewhere around �25,000 and a research physicists would be �35,000 and a senior physicists with management duties can earn up to �45,000 a year. A chemist would be studying the make-up of chemicals and materials. They would be working in different areas such as developing medicines, the oceans and worlds climate, cleaning water and teaching, lecturing and academic research. Most employers would be looking for a degree in chemistry. MSc, MPhil and PhD would also be useful. Fullers Fullers are a well known brewery in the UK. They have a range of ales and were names the 'Champion Beer of Britain', at the CAMRA's Great British Beer Festival and not only once, five times. They are based in most of UK's cities. There main plot is in Chiswick Lane, in South London. It is a smart place for the brewery to be built because of the motorways close by making it easy for them to moving around big amounts of beer. ...read more.


mist when sprayed NOTE: Never pour water (or use a water fire extinguisher on a class F fire -cooking fat and oil), this may make the fire explode. Powder-based fire extinguishers are either blue or red with a blue panel above the instructions. They are most useful against class B and C fires (liquids and gasses) and are most commonly found in these forms: - Sodium bicarbonate. - Potassium bicarbonate - Ammonium phosphate: also useful on class A fires. There are many types of foam fire extinguisher and they are usually either cream, or red with a cream panel above the instructions. They are mostly useful against classes A, and C (organic solids and flammable gasses). Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers are coloured either black or red with a black panel above the instructions. They are most effective against class B and E fires. NOTE: Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers have a nozzle that will become very cold during use, do not touch the nozzle as your hand may freeze to it as a result. If you are unable to handle the fire due it being too large then the fire it is advisable to evacuate the building immediately and inform the fire department. But all fire extinguishers should only be used on small, localised area. Fire extinguishers that have not been used might involve you refilling it so always check the gauge on the side of the extinguisher to see whether it is full or needs to be refilled. If the extinguisher has reached to the red 'warning' area it would need refilling. http://www.dayaftertomorrow.net ...read more.
