We have a proud heritage, built over 80 years, and a worldwide reputation for pioneering products and exceptional service.
With some 30,000 people in more than 120 countries, we’re a great place to work and a great environment for you to show us what you’re worth as you learn, grow and carve-out your career.

We have a very thorough people review process, unlike any we know of in any other business. We screen everyone in the company in a yearly career performance matching process. It means we can pair talent with opportunities - developing our people in their current roles or challenging them to work in new ways or in new places. It’s how we find the right fit and further our teams personally and professionally.
