We recognize that selecting a new employer is a major life changing event. At some point accepting a new job requires a leap of faith and you will probably make your decision based on a “feeling” about whether we can offer you an inspiring environment, stimulating culture, learning, growth and career opportunities.
We take great care in our hiring process to select diverse people who will support us on our mission to discover, develop innovative products and services that save and improve lives around the world. Here are some tips to help you navigate through our hiring process and make an informed career decision …
Explore our company & culture …
Before you apply, learn about who we are and make sure we are right for you. It’s important that our mission is in line with your values and that our culture align with yours.
Everyone you speak to in our company is aligned to our core values and mission to save and improve lives. Like any organisation, our culture differs slightly dependent on your manager, team, building, function, division or country you are in. To get a real time peek into our company culture take a look at our Company Social Media Channels:
Find your perfect career …
We have a diverse set of career opportunities, spread across different functional areas in many countries across the globe. Find a career that inspires you using our job search page.
Search by relevant keywords and filter further to home in on your perfect career based on your interests, background and location. You can also browse by our functional areas or divisions.
To personalize your career search, you can connect your LinkedIn/Social profile or allow us to scan your CV/resume. Our website will then suggest jobs based on your background automatically.
Our available jobs change every day. If you don’t see the right role today, we recommend that you join our Talent Community. We will then update you when a job comes up that fits your preferences.
Once you have found a job that inspires you, it’s time to apply. Make sure your CV/resume is up to date, positioned to sell your strengths and achievements, and makes you stand out from the crowd.
Be thoughtful about the position that you are applying for, and make sure that it’s one that not only inspires you, but one that you feel qualified for and could be successful in. As you read through the job advert take note of the main competencies that are required for the role and make sure these are represented on your CV/resume. If there are any qualification questions, be sure to answer all the questions completely and accurately.
There is no perfect layout for a CV/resume, but we do recommend that your main selling points are sold in the first half of the first page of your CV/resume. Think about the person reading the document and what would convince them you are the right fit for the role. Consider keywords that might be used across the industry and try to avoid internal or uncommon acronyms.
Remember, we might search for you using keywords too. Be smart about the keywords you use to make sure your profile will be found.
Once you have completed your application, you will get an email confirming your application has been received. Our Talent Acquisition Advisors will review and get back to you as quickly as possible. The timing can vary dependent on the number of applications we receive for each role and some cases we start to review applications only after the vacancy closing date.
You will be contacted by a member of our team who will provide you with all the details of the interview. We will confirm the time, location/video/telephone interview details, as well as who you will be meeting. For an onsite interview, you may need to bring photo identification to access the site. We recommend arriving early so you can get through security and meet your host.
As a company we believe in assessing people using a fair, consistent, structured interview process based on the competencies required for the role. We will ask about prior project work, behavioral and situational questions, your skills and achievements to better understand your capabilities, interests and long-term potential. Don’t be afraid to ask for clarification if you do not initially understand any of the questions.
For some roles we use Assessments to help us gain a better understand of who you are. Typically, these are used for Intern/Graduate, Sales, Manufacturing Operations and Leadership roles. You will be informed if the role you have applied to includes an assessment as part of the process.
Whilst we will ask a lot of questions, the interview process is a two-way process and you should also be assessing us to see if we can offer you the role, environment and development opportunities you are looking for. Have questions prepared to check if we are the right fit for you and your career ambitions.
If you get to this stage, we believe you will would be a good fit for the role and bring value to the team and our organisation as you grow in your career. We hope the feeling is mutual!
Your Talent Acquisition Advisor will contact you to discuss the details of your offer and will follow up in writing to confirm. We believe in the concept of “Total Rewards”. Take time to assess the full value of the package including any associated bonuses, health benefits, company pension contributions, wellness programs, onsite facilities, etc. (note that specific benefits may differ dependent on the role, country and local labor legislation).
Once you have expressed your commitment to join us, we will start your onboarding and trigger preparations for Day One.
If you need support to hand in your notice with current employer, your Talent Acquisition Advisor will be happy to offer guidance and advice.
Congratulations, you, are our newest Inventor!
