We employ some 5,500 people worldwide. And while they may all join us with very different skills and backgrounds, they have much in common. They’re eager to contribute – be that a fresh insight, a novel idea or a well-thought-through plan; they love pulling together as a team; and they care deeply about the patients we serve. What’s more, they’re determined to develop themselves as well as our business. Have a look at the routes the careers of just a few of them have taken.
National Sales Manager
I worked for a number of companies in the pharmaceutical industry before joining Mallinckrodt. During that time my roles varied a lot – I started out as a Product Manager for surgical sutures and then my responsibilities changed completely when I was made a Logistics Manager. As a result, I’ve learned to be very open to change. Now I’m looking forward to embracing fresh challenges in the new Mallinckrodt. As a relatively small organization, it’s flexible and agile enough to make the most of every opportunity. I’m going to enjoy being part of its rebirth as a stock-listed company with a bright future.
My new position as National Sales Manager is the highlight of my career to date. My colleagues are exceptional – to me they’re the best thing about working for Mallinckrodt – and I love my customers. They motivate me to do the best job I possibly can. I’m eager to play my part in expanding the Mallinckrodt business into Europe and repaying the trust that the company has placed in me.
As well as building business, I’d built great relationships with many of our customers in my previous role. So I was delighted when Mallinckrodt gave me greater responsibility for them by putting me in charge of Radiopharmaceuticals and all the Nuclear Medicine accounts in Switzerland.
I was working as a Customer Service and Logistics Manager for a Covidien company when it centralized the Logistics function and eliminated my position. That was when I found myself taking on one of the toughest challenges of my career. As a newly-appointed Product Specialist in Mallinckrodt’s Nuclear Medicine division, I was in unfamiliar territory and in charge of an unknown product. However, I had a very experienced manager who taught me a great deal about this complex area and I learned fast.
My early career was packed with variety. I worked for a number of companies that were owned or acquired by Mallinckrodt’s former parent company, Covidien, and my roles differed a lot. I started out as a Product Manager for Surgical Sutures in American Cynamid, part of which was bought by Covidien. Then my responsibilities changed completely when I was made a Logistics Manager at AHP, another company Covidien bought a division of. And later I became Customer Service and Logistics Manager at Kendall, wholly owned by Covidien. As a result, I learnt to be very open to change.
