A previous HR & People Analytics intern, Jippe Van Loocke, about his experience at Terumo Europe:


“Definitely one of the best experiences I could wish for before I start looking for my first job. The combination of working in team and at the same time working independently gave me a great feeling. The onboarding process was the ideal start for introducing me to Terumo Europe and their way of working. During my internship they not only gave me the opportunity to develop myself through their new online learning platform “Dojo”, but they also gave me the chance to be creative. Very important for me as well, was the integrity and care inside of Terumo. My colleagues really gave me the feeling that I was part of the team from day 1 and really showed me the appreciation and respect towards my way of working.”
