This opportunity for a development chemist at a speciality chemical firm in Staffordshire is ideal for a recent PhD graduate in a relevant chemistry field (inorganic/materials/organic synthesis).

Your day to day duties as a Development Chemist will be:

  • Testing and developing high value chemical products
  • Liaising with production to ensure reproducibility
  • Research into new revenue streams

You will be an ideal candidate with this background:

  • A degree, or higher, in a chemistry-related field
  • A track record of innovation in the laboratory
  • Commercial focus, like an "intrapreneurial" spirit

This client is already shortlisting for the role so I would like you to apply immediately with a CV (Word document format, 2 pages maximum) so as to not miss out on the opportunity.

Note my client is unable to sponsor visas for those without eligibility to work in the UK.

Why should you work with Dr Paul Mears as your scientific specialist recruiter at Science Solutions?

I focus solely on matching scientists to positions in the UK speciality chemical industry, which is where my own experience and network position me best given a background working in the speciality chemicals and fragrance and flavours sectors. I completed academic studies with a PhD in organic chemistry at the University of Manchester, which followed a BSc in the University of Leeds' famous Colour & Polymer Chemistry department. Following a short post-doctoral research post I built up three years' experience in recruiting scientists into new jobs. Full references and testimonials of successful assignments such as Technical Directors, Heads of Operations and quick turnarounds for urgent laboratory needs can be found on my LinkedIn profile - search Paul Mears.
