At Medstrom, we pride ourselves on the quality of our team and believe that our people are what makes us great. We offer a high level of support, as well as learning and development opportunities, to ensure our employees are able to succeed.
As a Service Operative, you will deliver an efficient and high-quality maintenance, repairs and field modification service throughout the south of the country.
You will clean, test and repair products ready for customers to use, deliver and install them on site and provide demonstrations and basic training to caregivers.

- Ensure compliance with quality processes, both internal and external
- Collect dirty or failing products from the customers
- Record electrical safety testing on products
- Complete daily and weekly activity reports
