Are you ready to start your career with a company that places both its employees and customers at the heart of everything we do? If you're a motivated, customer-focused individual with a clean driving licence and a can-do attitude, we want to hear from you.

You’ll fit in well with us at Medstrom, where we have disrupted the market by providing proven and well-evidenced products and services to our busy customers, helping to make a real difference to both their workload and crucially their patients’ outcomes.

Established in 2010, Medstrom has grown substantially by being patient focused to become the organisation we are today, whilst maintaining an open culture and ethos.
