Getting a good start
Before you start your Cochlear career, we will prepare your integration plan so that you get the best welcome to the team. A buddy will assist you during this phase, and the work plan will allow you to make early contributions to the business. Our 'Get Equipped' induction program is a valuable learning tool to ensure a standard of knowledge for all employees globally.
Providing a work environment in which to excel
Our success depends on providing an environment in which our employees can excel. You will get to work with leading professionals, local and international teams, and in a non-hierarchical, open-plan office environment. This allows access to people from all levels of the business, who will support and recognise your valuable contribution.
We recognise the importance of continuous improvement and feedback. Regular meetings between managers and an annual performance review, provide the opportunity to discuss work objectives and progress towards them. They also highlight development that may be required to achieve these objectives, along with your longer-term career goals.
You will be able to support your career with a combination of on-the-job development, general and specialist training courses and flexible e-learning options. The range of learning solutions covers job-specific and technical areas, as well as general areas such as communication, time management and self-leadership. In 2011 Cochlear was named as a Finalist in a very competitive field in the Best Learning Solutions Strategy category in the Australian HR Awards.
The success of our business depends on that of our people. At Cochlear, we are committed to identifying potential, providing development opportunities, and empowering you to make a difference in our business.
We will expect you to take ownership of your career development from an early stage. After all, taking personal accountability is one of our core behavioural competencies, so you are encouraged to take on as much responsibility as possible, and drive your own professional growth. As we continue to experience growth and expand as a business, future career opportunities will be on the horizon.
Our talent management strategy focuses on developing people at all levels to secure the future management of the company. Cochlear's Leadership Architecture sets the expectations and framework to develop our leaders to sustain future growth. We will also encourage you to form networks to share knowledge and experience, which will benefit your personal development and contribution to business success.
