Sawako

Sales Representative, Wound Management, Japan

"Knowing that I am supporting healthcare professionals to make a positive difference to their patients is a great feeling and I definitely see myself playing a role in Smith & Nephew’s future."

Sawako, Graduate hire in Japan

"I first became interested in the medical devices industry while I was studying at university and doing some research with dressings from Smith & Nephew to see how quickly they healed wounds. I was fascinated!

"After looking into the different medical device companies, I discovered that Smith & Nephew had fantastic products and it was the company I wanted to work for. After meeting representatives from the company, I was sure that it was where I wanted to work.

"I work as a Sales Representative in Wound Management and every day presents a new challenge. I feel that I have been given a lot of responsibility. I am expected to plan and organise my own workload, but my manager supports and guides me wherever I need help. The role is challenging but I feel that I have a lot of opportunity to grow and develop my skills.

"If I had to summarise my experience, I would say that every day is different. I have to be flexible and able to adapt to different situations. The medical industry is changing all the time so there are always new things to learn. I really enjoy working at Smith & Nephew because I can challenge myself.

"Knowing that I am supporting healthcare professionals to make a positive difference to their patients is a great feeling and I definitely see myself playing a role in Smith & Nephew’s future."
