Pioneering environment - innovative spirit
We use our innovative spirit every day to improve our products, processes and services
"Our solutions cover a wide range of technology from managing the amount of radiation a patient receives during treatment to the Internet of Things and machine learning. This broad expertise has led to the development of ground-breaking cancer treatment systems, some of which others had argued are not possible to achieve."
Head of RT Apps & Control Systems, Engineering
"The opportunity to be an integral part of developing innovative cutting-edge technologies for the fight against cancer and other diseases is really stimulating. Working in innovative ways to build products that make a huge difference for millions of people makes my work feel important."
Senior Systems Engineer Mechanics
"From a pioneering front, I see Elekta as always taking the first step in introducing new that will improve the quality of patient care on many fronts. We revolutionized radiotherapy when cone beam CT was introduced, and we have done it again with the successful deployment of the Elekta Unity MR-linac."
Clinical Application Development Specialist
"At Elekta, our development teams are set up in a way that encourages sharing ideas - with a dedicated budget allocated to doing so each quarter. It's great to work in an organization that promotes innovative thinking and invests in testing the ideas of employees to see how they could potentially improve how cancer is treated."
Senior Manager, MR Linac Delivery System
Make a difference together
Our work makes a difference in the lives of patients around the world
"They say, "Choose a job you love and you'll never have to work a day in your life" - that's what working for Elekta is to me. I've not only found a place that gives me freedom for my creativity, but also the opportunity to make a difference. I'm so proud of what I do and what Elekta stands for, that I inspire young generations to develop an interest in physics and radiotherapy at STEM events. I want all people - from kids to policy makers - to know about our work, and perhaps join us one day!"
Validation Process Excellence Manager
"To know that my role in project management will eventually lead to someone with cancer receiving treatment is a great privilege. When I create a project plan for a new customer site, the very best part is the "go live date" - which is when the first patient is treated. No matter how challenging, I love that what I do matters in the best possible way."
Site Manager Nordics, UK, Ireland
Success through people
Each one of us, acting with integrity and accountability, are vital to the success of Elekta
"Elekta is great at emphasizing the importance of people. As a member of our leadership development program, I am able to encourage and guide leaders, including management, on the importance of focusing on each individual. In many areas, Elekta takes action on what it says is important by building success through people."

Deputy General Counsel and Managing Director EIAB
