I was working in the Aerospace sector in Shannon when I secured a Manufacturing Engineering job through HERO with a medical device company in Galway. From day one I felt that I had made the right decision.
I am in a much better environment now and thanks to HERO who supported me from the very first phone call.

Anatoly Slowetzky, Manufacturing Engineer, Boston Scientific


I was working in the automotive sector at the time I was very skeptical about moving to a Medical Device Company. This was mainly due to the fact that the Medical Device Industry is so highly regulated compared to what I was used to.
My concerns and question were answered in detail by Anna in HERO due to her vast experience in recruiting engineers.
The transition to the Medical Device Industry has been flawless.
