Why do you enjoy working at Medtronic?

One of the number one reasons I enjoy working at Medtronic is because of the passion of the Medtronic family and how we make a difference. I recall my first day at Medtronic back in 2003, I was overwhelmed with the number of enthusiastic 'hellos' I received in the corridors, not just on my first day, but for many many years to come after that. At first I thought it was just because I had been working in a public hospital and the difference in work environment must have been the reason, but it was very clear to me that passion was the driving force of Medtronic employees, which I soon adopted myself and still carry to this day.

Additionally, I enjoy working with a fantastic team and colleagues. I work within a team of intelligent, passionate and fun people who share my passion for Medtronic therapies and the world of HE&R, so we spend a lot of time together problem solving major barriers to ensure we best understand our technology. But their passion and loyalty to solve whatever is at hand is loud and clear.

What is challenging about your job?

External forces – this is because I primarily deal with governments and payers who are being asked to pay for great technologies but manage very tight budgets. The conversation is always about how they can grant access to these technologies but still make up their budgets.

What do you appreciate most about Medtronic?

That I've been fortunate to have been in the right place and the right time, working for leaders who have clear sight of their role and the role they have in creating and developing their talent.

What do you love about your current location?

Sydney, Australia – sun, beaches and an abundance of locations to experience and explore!

What is one random fact about you?

I consider myself to be a hardball negotiator (when it's called for), so those who know me around the office could find this negotiator persona quite different to my everyday style.


Beware of fraudulent job postings from people claiming to be recruiters for Medtronic.

We are aware of job postings being made by people who claim to be recruiters for Medtronic, even using Medtronic employee names, but who are in no way affiliated with Medtronic. We have also been made aware of people posing as Medtronic recruiters and making contact about job opportunities and extending job offers via text message, instant message or chat rooms. These job postings and offers are fraudulent.

Beware of recruiters that ask candidates to submit unusual personal information like bank statements or utility bills, pay a fee in order to be considered for a job, or pay "start-up expenses" after being hired. Medtronic does not require candidates to make any type of payment to them as part of the recruitment process or job offer. The Federal Trade Commission, the United States' consumer protection agency, has online resources for detecting job scams.

Positions posted on the Careers site are legitimate. If you find a Medtronic posting on a site other than our careers site, verify its legitimacy before applying by visiting the Career Opportunities section of our site and searching for the requisition number.

If you think you have responded to a fraudulent job posting or been a victim of this scam, you are encouraged to report it to your local law enforcement and to the Internet Crime Complaint Center for further investigation.

If you have further questions, please call (800) 328-2518.
