James - Graduate Engineer, MA, USA

"Smith & Nephew is a great place to work. I actually interned at our Mansfield site during two of my university breaks before applying to the engineering graduate programme. I loved the culture at the Mansfield site and seeing how happy people were in their work played a major part in my decision to apply.

"I’m on the Rotational Engineering Programme which means that I move to a different department every six months. The company gives graduates on this programme really great experience. It’s not like entry level roles at other companies; here they really trust you and they give you big tasks from day one. I work hand-in-hand with senior engineers who have years of experience and I feel like I’m seen and treated as a full member of the team.

"I’ve also been given the opportunity to gain wider business experience. For example, I’m working on a continuous improvement programme looking at how we can improve the day-to-day working environment to become more efficient and effective. It gives me the chance to work closely with the manufacturing operatives on the production floor which helps me to be much more effective in my role. Building trust between the engineers and the operatives is vital; I couldn’t do my job without them. They know the issues and I really appreciate the knowledge they share with me.

"One of my favourite experiences at Smith & Nephew so far though is completely outside of my role as an engineer. As a hobby, I enjoy photography and video making. So when our site received a visit from Olivier, our Chief Executive, I was asked if I could create a video about the site and the work we do here at Mansfield. When the leadership team saw my video, they really liked it and asked if I would make a video of two other sites in the US: Memphis, Tennessee and Fort Worth, Texas. My manager was completely supportive throughout and gave me the time I needed for it, even though it was so far away from my job description.
