    Bin Zeng - Graduate MES Engineer

    “Lift at Zenith Technologies is dynamic, challenging but full of great career opportunities and excellent people around you, and I am witness to this!”

    My interest in both IT and business, and belief in the unrivalled future of weaving IT into the fabric of everyday business pointed me in the direction of pursuing a Master’s Degree in Business Information Systems after having obtained a BSc in Computer Science at University College Cork (UCC). Since then, I have committed myself to being a successful IS professional.

      • The most amazing part of working at Zenith Technologies (ZT) is the abundant opportunities, great challenges and the emphasis on people’s development. A few years ago, I was just a Non-EU graduate without any work experience who was struggling in even being invited to an interview. Today, I’ve been given opportunities to join different teams and work on various projects, including service transition, serialisation support and ITCP test, which equips me a well blend of technical and service management skills and expertise. In the near future, I will join the fingerprint team to deploy serialisation solutions at many GSK sites. Why I know this is going to happen? The answer is simple – I spoke my mind and ZT listened & acted on it. All these amazing experiences were given by ZT who held out their hands to me in those tough days. They have opened a door for me to embark on the journey of exploring Business Information Systems particularly in the Life Sciences Industry.

        However, nobody is perfect, so neither is ZT; as a medium-sized company, ZT still needs many improvements, but I believe ZT will have a promising future with what I have already seen. Over the past year, there has been so many things happening here, we have experienced a significant growth in business, improvements in our working environment, reformation of internal business information systems and many others. Now, would you question a man who desires a success and backs up their pursuits by actions?

        ZT is dynamic, innovative, and fast-growing, working with most of the world leading Life Science companies; ZT has a warm, friendly and open atmosphere ensuring that everyone’s work life is great. What is more, ZT place their people’s continual professional development and long-term retention at the heart of what they do. If you’re an individual like me who is pursuing a career of taking challenges, working with some of the most talented people around the world, ZT is the place for you. If you are still considering, my advice is to research the company profile and the business that we do, talk to a ZT employee for more information. Maybe one day, you will be creating your own success story at Zenith Technologies!

      • As an Automation Engineer at Zenith Technologies every day is different. I enjoy the variety and diversity associated with project work. I have been a part of every section of the product life cycle in my short time working here. I have gained invaluable experience in validation, software and hardware design and testing and document control. I have been fortunate enough to spend time on site in two leading pharmaceutical plants, working with people from various areas of expertise. I have learned so much in a year at Zenith Technologies – not alone technical skills but I have also developed my soft skills through working in a fast paced team environment. I have been given a lot of responsibility which has greatly assisted my career development.

        Zenith Technologies has a very warm, relaxed feel while also upholding its status of Best Managed Company 2014.

    Michael McCarthy - Graduate Automation Engineer

    I studied Applied Physics and Instrumentation at Cork Institute of Technology and now work at Zenith Technologies as an Automation Engineer based in Novartis, Ringaskiddy, Cork.

    I enjoy working with Zenith. The work can be quite challenging but my colleagues are always willing to lend a hand and share their knowledge.

      • I have learnt a considerable amount during my time with Zenith. My competency in the DeltaV control system has vastly improved since college and I have seen a variety of aspects of the control system from I/O configuration and loop checking to recipe creation.

        Since starting with Zenith I have progressively been given more responsibility which I feel has already helped with my career progression.

        I would recommend starting as a graduate with Zenith. Everyone was very approachable and always willing to help me learn.

    Orla Cussen - Validation Engineer

    I have worked with Zenith for almost 13 years. I came straight out of college and joined ZT in 2001. I feel that Zenith has always seen the potential in graduates and were willing to take a risk on someone with little experience. Because of working on various sites over the years as well as in the office, I feel I have gained the experience of having a few jobs, with the security that comes with staying in one company.
