Limbs & Things hands graduates chance to shine in its unique training programme

October 12, 2023

Bristol-based medical simulator company Limbs & Things has taken on three new graduates to participate in its unique recruitment scheme.

The one-of-a-kind scheme gives the graduates the opportunity to play a part in the growth of the world-leading company whose medical training products, which range from ‘arms’ with mock blood systems and birthing simulators, are used by specialists around the globe to address medical scenarios from routine examinations to emergency interventions.

The two-year graduate programme gives graduates the chance to work on a range of projects and to gain knowledge of the larger business and industry, with an emphasis on either a commercial or operational career path.

Limbs & Things, which employs its 230 people, launched the scheme last year, and now has two graduates entering their second year of the programme.

Meanwhile three graduates have been recruited to start this month for the next two-year programme.

Limbs & Things commercial director Anne Allin said: “This is a unique opportunity to work in an industry that is changing medical training and practice for the better, and to be part of a hardworking, collaborative team.

“Our expansive programme helps graduates build on skills they’ve already begun to develop, give opportunities for progression, gain insight into key business decisions, and ultimately help Limbs & Things continue transforming lives across the world. We can’t wait to welcome our new cohort of graduates to the team.”

Cat Rogers, who joined the scheme last October after graduating in Product Design and Manufacture (MEng), said: “This program has provided me with the unique opportunity to work in various departments within the company, gaining valuable experience and a well-rounded view of the organisation.

“My technical and commercial confidence has grown immensely over my placements, and I’ve really enjoyed being able to connect with the other young people in the company through training away days and online sessions.

“This scheme is a great way to try out many roles with real-time, on-the-job-learning, so utilising all the opportunities that come your way is the best way to get as much exposure to different types of responsibilities within the business. I’m looking forward to applying the skills and knowledge I have gained in my future here.”

Based in St Philips, Limbs & Things has almost doubled its production over the past three years.

In the past year it turned over £30m and exported its products to more than 50 countries worldwide.
