In IP we believe that our team’s contribution is fundamental and core to what we do, given that we are a world-leading medical devices company. We find it rewarding to see our patents come to life in products that make peoples’ lives better. We are immersed into our R&D team, which gives us the opportunity to be close to the technology and understand and have input into how our inventions come to life. We highly value the variety of IP work and being able to work in a commercial and fulfilling environment.

“I find the culture here inclusive and egalitarian. I started in the product development team over eight years ago and I have been in the IP team for four years now. I really appreciate the opportunity and support I have had to try a different career path. I also value the open plan style we have on our campus, as it means that barriers between managers and employees are minimised, improving communication.”

“I have been here for a few months, relocating from Australia to take up this opportunity. It was a rare chance to work with a growing company that develops new technologies for which IP is strategically important. The culture strikes a balance of being open and relaxed yet conscientious. Every day presents a new challenge. It is never dull. It’s all about making a difference to patients who use our products.”
