You don’t have to be a petrol head to enjoy working in Motorsports! 

Development Chemists wanted to join a friendly team in Harwich, Essex.

This is a really exciting opportunity to start your career in the Chemical industry by working in a small friendly team developing Performance Fuels.

It’s a fascinating environment where you can hone the skills and knowledge you’ve gained at university and amass some real industry experience.   You’ll get lots of hands-on opportunities to get involved, including attending racing events and performing trackside testing so you need to be flexible in your approach and willing to travel.

You’ll be involved in all aspects of the process including quality testing, liaising with external test providers and taking responsibility for releasing fuels for bulk manufacture.  We’ll give you all the training you need as well as opportunities to work across the Group on other sites and in other countries.

Successful applicants will have a degree in a chemistry related discipline and ideally some experience in a similar role but if it’s your first real job then an enthusiastic attitude and an ability to work under pressure will be what we are looking for.  We would also consider taking on applicants with more experience for some senior roles within the team, or those with good science A levels who may be interested in starting out in a training role. 

In return we are offering a salary of up to £25,000 depending on experience, (more for those in the senior roles), and an attractive benefits package including a healthcare scheme, contributory pension and 25 days holiday a year. Some help with relocation may be available to the right candidates.

Interested?  Send your CV plus a covering letter explaining why you want the role to Michael Lyttle on by the 20th March 2017.
