Stryker has a long history in Ireland with decades of growth. Today, employees work together in the research, development and manufacturing of medical devices for Medical and Surgical, Neurotechnology, Orthopaedics and Spine, to help improve patient and healthcare outcomes across the globe. Our Ireland locations offer career opportunities for a wide range of functions in Sales, Engineering, Research and Development, Information Services, Quality and Finance, as well as a diversity of operator functions for our various, state-of-the-art manufacturing processes. 

Here are 7 reasons to join Stryker in Ireland:

1. 25+ years of growth in Ireland

Our presence in Ireland started in 1998 with a small number of employees in Cork. Over the last 25+ years, our footprint in Ireland has continued to grow.

2. Health and well-being programs

Every month, we offer health programs focusing on nutrition, movement, the mind, and wellness at work. Every October, we celebrate Wellbeing Week which includes a number of key initiatives including guest speakers, mindfulness sessions, yoga classes, and healthy food samples. Throughout the year we focus on the well-being of our employees through initiatives like lunchtime walks, reflexology, sleep seminars, road races, and more!

3. Flexible work hours

Having a balance in your professional and personal life is important for your overall well-being and productivity – one way to achieve that balance is through flexible work hours. Stryker’s Chairman and CEO, Kevin Lobo, also shares his 5 tips on how to achieve a healthier work/life balance.

4. Annual celebrations

From Family Day, to Engineers Week, to Bring Your Child to Work Day, and many things in-between, we have many reasons and ways to celebrate. Employees tell us repeatedly that our recognition programs and informal acknowledgements inspire them and build loyalty, commitment and attachment to Stryker.

5. Engaging events

Our employees supported Daffodil Day by holding baking competitions, raffles and children's coloring competitions to raise money for the Irish Cancer Society. During the holidays, certain sites host a Christmas dinner with an onsite band and choir performing. Employees host beach clean ups. And certain sites even have ice cream trucks come for a sweet afternoon treat.

6. Education

We are committed to creating and maintaining numerous apprenticeships and graduate programs across various Stryker departments. We also offer an Educational Assistance program where Stryker may financially contribute to furthering your education.
