Takuma - Graduate hire in Japan

“When I was first thinking about careers, I wanted to become a professional boxer. I became interested in medical devices when I injured my knee and needed meniscal surgery. After the operation, a nurse used a Smith & Nephew dressing on my knee to help it to heal. It was my experience of that surgery and the part that the medical products played which sparked my interest in the medical devices industry.

“I did a lot of research into Smith & Nephew and it seemed like the perfect fit for me. After meeting some of the staff, I had a great impression of the company and I could really see myself joining them.

“I joined Smith & Nephew as a trainee sales representative and I feel that I have learned so much. In particular, I feel that my skills in communication, planning and organising have really improved; and I am learning more about the industry and my role every day.

“I enjoy many things about my role. I interact with healthcare professionals every day and being treated as a respected professional by them is a great feeling. The company gives me a variety of great opportunities, responsibilities and challenges which are helping me to develop and grow. The people here are really nice and the senior staff are very supportive. 

“If I had to summarise my experience at Smith & Nephew, I would say that I work with a great team, I work with products that I believe in and I feel that I am progressing every single day as I learn more about the business, the products and the industry.

“I’m looking forward to building my career at Smith & Nephew and becoming a top sales person.”
