Claire Hazleton has worked at Siemens Healthineers for almost a decade, commencing her career as a Systems Engineer in 2012 before embarking on her current position as a Senior Engineer at Siemens Healthineers Magnet Technology in Oxford, UK.

The majority of Claire's work involves running tests to increase the technology readiness level of new ideas that the company wants to include in future magnet design.

A career making a positive impact 

Claire's interest in working for Siemens Healthineers Magnet Technology emanated from her work needing to truly matter and make a difference - being interesting not only from a technical perspective, and also ensuring what she did had a positive impact.

A typical working day for Claire can be quite varied, which she likes. "I enjoy getting to work with a wide range of people from across the business on a daily basis," explains Claire. 

Describing the culture of the business, Claire says the environment is innovative, passionate, responsible and certainly world-class.

STEM careers offer a variety of job roles

Offering advice to young people considering STEM careers, Claire says: "At school, it wasn't obvious to me just how transferable studies in STEM are. You can go on to be an academic but there are so many other opportunities that you might not expect. I would advise researching the variety of jobs STEM studies can lead to."

Looking at the greatest challenges she faces, Claire explains: "We use a lot of helium which, as a commodity, has had significant price fluctuations in recent years. This forces us to be innovative in both finding ways of using helium more efficiently and reducing our usage."

Discussing career inspiration, Clare didn’t see many women in STEM at a senior level, but finds it inspiring to now see more so how that aspect is completely changing at an intake level.

Enjoying meaningful and stimulating work 

One of the most rewarding parts of Claire's role is knowing that the products Siemens Healthineers make have a direct positive impact on the patients who use them.

"I feel very lucky to be able to carry out meaningful and stimulating work surrounded by colleagues who are passionate about what we do," says Claire.

Enthusiastic, friendly and dedicated outside of work, Claire enjoys running and volunteering at her local Parkrun i(a free community event where you can walk, jog, run, volunteer or spectate) in her well-deserved downtime.
