DTR Medical are proud supporters of the Swansea University student employability scheme – ‘SPIN’ (Swansea Paid Internship Network).

Introduced by Swansea University under the Swansea Employability Academy, SPIN is an initiative focused on assisting students to be better prepared to enter work after completing their studies.

Taking the opportunity to show continued support of regional initiatives, DTR Medical attended the scheme’s launch on campus at Swansea University.

In June, they welcomed English Literature Undergraduate Dafydd Nash to their growing Marketing department as they sought to complement the growing business with an expanding team. Dafydd joined the company on a six week placement, undertaking a range of Marketing based projects providing much valued support to the departmental and company objectives.


Tim Christopher (Marketing Coordinator at DTR Medical)

Dafydd has made significant progress with all the tasks set out before the placement, whilst settling into the team quickly.

He has demonstrated a clear understanding of our core values and position in the industry, our customer base and competitors, whilst already presenting his research findings at a recent company quarterly meeting.

The SPIN scheme has provided this opportunity platform for both parties and as other companies begin to realise some of the benefits we have experienced even in this short time….I can only foresee this scheme growing from strength to strength.

We are a proud supporter of SPIN!”


Andrew Davidson (Managing Director of DTR Medical)

 “Dafydd has been a great help to Tim and to our marketing effort and plans. And will stay with us for a few more weeks. This alone is testament to the fact that we value his input. I am particularly pleased that he has contributed to all the areas we set out in our plans. There is still work to be done and I know he will deliver a great job for us.

He has has worked well within the whole DTR Medical Team, including Sales, and it has been a pleasure to work with him. I sincerely hope that in return we have given him something he can put on his CV to be proud of, and to help him offer a unique selling point to prospective employers.”

Dafydd took the opportunity to reflect on the time spent with the company  –

“SPIN is a great opportunity for students to gain experience and employable skills. DTR Medical have been very accommodating during my time with them, making me feel a valued member of the team, whilst involving in all aspects of the business from day one. I would highly recommend both the SPIN employability scheme and DTR Medical for future students – it has been more than enjoyable.”
