Philips World-Wide Experience Can Build Your Career Quickly

Philips World-Wide Experience Can Build Your Career Quickly

This is a world-wide organisation with factories and commercial divisions in many countries. Here in New Zealand we have at Naenae an Electronic Centre manufacturing television and radio products and a Commercial Division in Wellington to distribute them. Behind this activity lies a challenge to enterprising young men and women in the technical and production fields and it is here that university graduates con be employed to aid maximum efficiency. In the Philips laboratory considerable design and development work is carried out on radio and television as well as the design and maintenance of electronic equipment to assist with the alignment and testing of apparatus on the production line. Draughting is another facet of the activities of the Laboratory. In conjunction with the Laboratory there is a Methods Engineering Section and a section responsible for pre-production planning and preparation for the production line. It is here and on the production line itself that mechanical engineers have their greatest opportunities. There is also an expanding engineering section where, again, both mechanical and electronic engineers have opportunities to build a career for the future. In our Commercial Organisation there are many aspects of technical work where graduates have wide opportunities open to them. This is not only in the accountancy and commercial degree fields but also in the technical aspects allied to the commercial activity.
