Graduate Electronics Engineer – Smith+Nephew – Hull

  • Hull


Role Title

R&D Graduate Electronics Engineer


Hull, UK (Hybrid)


Competitive salary and comprehensive benefits on offer


Every lifecycle has a start point, and Smith+Nephew’s wound devices are no different. To bring a new product to market, there are many stages of testing, verification and validation to consider, and that comes after a concept is in place!

Here’s the exciting part!

As an Electronics Engineer there is an opportunity to offer expertise for the Electronic elements of our product design in Advanced Wound Devices (AWD). An opportunity to support our product development projects from cradle to grave while consistently straddling what’s considered conceptual thinking, and data driven research. It requires “thinking outside of the box”, or at times redefining the “box” during development.

To do this, were looking for a graduate to join us to specialise in Electronics engineer, with growth and development offered over the coming years.

Sound good? Here are some of the expectations in the role:
