Graduate Scheme - Biomedical Engineering - Medical Devices - Cambridge

We are currently looking for a number of people for an exciting opportunity, based in Cambridge. The role is available for well-educated and ambitious Biomedical Engineering graduates. Your career opportunities will open-up to a few different possible fields and we are looking for at least ten people for this team.

You will be working alongside other Biomedical Engineering Graduates and senior Biomedical Engineers and help with the fault finding, problem solving, problem predicting and documenting of the company's most recent electro-mechanical medical device. This is a great role for someone who enjoys tinkering, fault finding, problem solving and thinking on their feet to come up with new ideas.

Due to the varied duties in this role, you will get the opportunity to progress into other areas of the business within 18-24 months. This could be design, mechanical, testing, electronics, operations or another interesting path.

As this is a new technology, finding out every possible issue there could be with the device and working out the best ways to solve them or devise ways to avoid them completely in the future. To be able to do this, you will be using your Biomedical Engineering skills.

If your skills are stronger on Mechanical or Electronics, you will be trained on the other side to help you succeed in this role. This will help with your future career options within the organisation.

As this is a Graduate role, you will need to hold a degree within a Biomedical Engineering or Bioengineering field. If you have just finished a PhD, this would also be an acceptable Graduate entry level, with the salary reflecting you extra knowledge.

The reason we are looking for people with a Biomedical Engineering or Bioengineering education background is because of the mix of mechanical, electronics and biology you would have worked on. This makes the learning curve, in this role, a lot easier for you.

You will need to travel to client sites, third party organisations and to trade shows. This will help you develop your people facing skills, allowing another career path on top of the highly technical ones you will have access to.

If you have been in industry for a year or two and do not feel like you are getting the development you want, this could also be an excellent opportunity with a long-term career plan.

As this role involves you to be hands on with your mechanical and electronics applications, you would ideally have had some technical hobbies in the past. This could be working on building a car engine or motorbike, building your own PCs, taking apart and putting together electronics or any other hobby that involves problem solving, fault finding and thinking on your feet.

Apart from the career development and training, you will be rewarded with an excellent starting salary, pension, social activities and other benefits.

So, if you like to investigate, fault find, problem solve and use your education, that will also lead onto a fantastic career path, then make an application now, or risk missing out.

For more information, please feel free to call Andrew Welsh, Director of Medical Devices recruitment specialists Newton Colmore Consulting, on +44 121 268 2240 or make an application and one of our team at Newton Colmore Consulting will contact you.
