Graduate Supply Chain Analyst Elizabeth

"I graduated from university with a degree in Finance and decided that I wanted to find a role that would give me a broad view of how a business operates. Joining the Smith & Nephew Supply Chain graduate programme has certainly given me that view!

"Supply Chain is a much broader area of the business than I had ever imagined. It covers inventory, supply and demand planning, as well as ensuring that product deliveries to our customers take place on time. So far I have worked in three different areas of Supply Chain; being able to work in different areas is great. I’m getting a good sense of how all the pieces fit together to support what we do as a company.

"I’m from Memphis and Smith & Nephew is a well-respected company in the city, so I was keen to join. In fact, since I’ve started here, people even stop me on the street if I’m wearing my badge to tell me that they’ve used our products. It’s really cool!

"I really enjoy the culture here and my colleagues are such nice people. I like that I can sit and talk with managers at all levels and I feel that they are genuinely invested in my development. I have multiple mentors and we meet each month to talk about everything from personal life to professional development.

"The piece of work I’m most proud of so far is designing a new format for inventory reporting. It’s helped us to streamline and improve the entire process and it’s now being used globally!

"This role offers the perfect amount of challenge which keeps me focused. When I’m assigned tasks, I’m given the space to figure it out for myself and my confidence has definitely grown as a result. I really like the sense of individual autonomy and responsibility I get here and I’m enjoying the opportunity to learn on my own but with support when I need it.

"My advice for a new graduate would be to join a company that will offer a lot of opportunity to excel and grow."
