J and J Óige

Johnson and Johnson are a family of companies and while we often operate as separate entities we recognize the opportunities that working together can provide such as the sharing of innovative ideas, knowledge, talent and solutions within Campus Ireland.

J&J Óige was launched in 2015 to encourage the networking of young J&J employees within Ireland. J&J Óige is a platform from which young talent from Campus Ireland can get in touch with each other to generate and exchange knowledge and ideas, and explore opportunities.

J and J Óige Mission Statement

Through J&J Óige, we connect capable, career driven and ambitious employees across Campus Ireland to aid their development through improved knowledge sharing, idea generation & cross campus networking opportunities. It is envisaged that the meeting of these diverse groups of people in an innovative environment will lead to better solutions for us as individuals, for our company, for our customers and ultimately for our patients.

By creating a network between the Campus Ireland companies, inspiration and leadership held within each of the companies can flow through every facet of our organisation, enriching all aspects of our work and ensuring we remain a world leader in providing innovative healthcare solutions to our customers.
