Cork Global Business Solutions

In July 2010, Cork was selected as the location for Lilly’s European Shared Services. Operations went live in 2011 with a team of 100 supporting a diverse geographical area of over 40 countries across Europe, Russia, the Middle East and Africa in the areas of Finance – General Accounting, Order to Cash and Purchase to Pay.

Over the past 10 years, GBS Cork has evolved from shared service provider to global business partner for many of Lilly’s key business units. The Centre offers innovative solutions that add value to the wider enterprise and has expanded far beyond its original financial mandate

Today, in addition to finance, our team of over 800 employees centralise, optimise and add value in areas such as global HR solutions, customer support (both patient and healthcare professional) clinical trial capabilities, scientific communications and much more.

Our success is underpinned by Lilly’s core values – Excellence, Integrity and Respect for People – and these are demonstrated in everything we do. With a ten-fold increase in employee numbers since inception in 2010, GBS Cork is a key component of Lilly’s wider productivity agenda.
