“Unsure of exactly where I saw my career progressing, I decided to apply for the Merit Medical graduate programme. The interview process involved an initial video interview and then an induction day on site that included group tasks, a site tour and another interview. I would advise anyone to relax and enjoy the interview process, Merit Medical are looking for enthusiastic graduates with a goal of developing their career within the company as well-rounded, competent Engineers.
Over my two years as a Graduate Engineer, I will work across functions including R&D, Regulatory Affairs, Quality and Manufacturing, gaining an insight into Merit as an entire business. Therefore, I can see what areas and teams suit my skills and personality best. During my first rotation, I worked on the R&D team where I helped bring new products to launch as well as conducting laboratory testing on existing products. While working closely with teams within these departments, I have also been given an experienced mentor within the company.
Mentoring provides a safe environment to share skills, knowledge and goals to assist my individual development over the two years. Merit is a fast-expanding company with plenty of opportunities and recently won ‘Medtech Company of the Year.’ This programme allows graduates an opportunity to grow alongside Merit and I would encourage any recent engineering or science graduate to apply!”
