“I am finishing my first rotation of the four in the graduate programme here in Merit Medical. Over two years I will be spending 6-months in R&D, Quality, and in two different manufacturing roles. During my first 6-months I was in the role of a manufacturing engineer, where I was given excellent training and hands-on experience. Some examples of this would be dealing with external companies to produce fixtures and equipment to aid the production line, looking at ways of increasing line and process efficiency and ensuring the line runs smoothly. I thoroughly enjoy the day to day challenges, and I have found this programme to be very rewarding.
This was my first time ever working in a factory of any description. The team around me has made it so easy to settle into my role and had no problem sitting down and showing me the ropes. There are regular social outings to get involved in also, hosted by the sports and social club!”
