Introducing the Jobs Lab: our dedicated medtech and STEM careers area
The Jobs Lab is Jobs Expo Galway’s dedicated area for medtech and STEM jobs.
Ireland’s medtech and STEM sector has grown year on year. As a result, so has the demand for dedicated staff.
Ireland’s medical technology sector is one of five global hubs. Furthermore, eight of the world’s top ten medtech companies have Irish bases – mostly in Galway and the West. Given this, it is no surprise that Ireland is the second highest employer of medtech professionals in Europe.
The Jobs Lab gives Jobs Expo attendees to meet with medtech and STEM companies and find out about the variety of roles they have on offer. As a dedicated area, it offers exhibitors the chance to meet the right kinds of candidates, showcase their companies and network with other professionals in the sector.
We are delighted to announce that the Jobs Lab will be headed up Boston Scientific, sponsors of September’s Jobs Expo Galway. Other famous names exhibiting at the Jobs Lab are Merit Medical and Transitions Optical.
