"Every day is different and that's a huge plus for me, I love to take on new challenges and the Company is willing to allow you to take on those challenges."

Patrick Reese

"Smith & Nephew first came on my radar whilst studying Biomedical Engineering at the University of Memphis. I saw them at the University promoting careers, explaining what it would be like to work for the Company and so I signed up to do a tour of the facilities - after that I was hooked and I couldn’t wait to get started. 

"The tours were really enlightening; to see the thoroughness of the research that goes into the quality of the products, ensuring they are the best they can possibly be really blew me away!

"Now my role is Quality Remediation Engineer and involves looking retrospectively at products, seeing what gaps there are from a risk point of view and developing the product further to ensure that everything is covered.

"Often I work with other departments across the business and there is a real collaborative effort to make a difference here at Smith & Nephew. I really believe that is true, not just at Smith & Nephew but there is a wider effort in the industry to continue advancing medical technology and I’m really glad to be a part of it.

"Every day is different and that’s a huge plus for me, I love to take on new challenges and the Company is willing to allow you to take on those challenges. In my eighteen months here I have learned so much, my Managers are very involved in my career and continuingly seek out ways to progress me – they always have time for me which is very reassuring.

"On top of that, it’s just a great place to be. I’m a member of the Camaraderie Council here in Memphis and we welcome new employees to the Company, offering advice, arranging social activities – I just want them to like the Company as much as I do!

"At the moment I am so content at Smith & Nephew, I’m looking forward to continue developing professionally and personally with the Company."
