Technologist - Formulation Sciences (Chemistry) BLUT51369
Ledbury, Herefordshire
Competitive Salary

Our Client is a well-established contract research organisation, involved principally in the conduct of preclinical studies for their customers in the pharmaceutical industry.

They have an immediate vacancy for someone to work in their Formulation Sciences department in a hands-on technical role. This involves preparing formulations of test items, using a range of laboratory equipment, to the highest standards of accuracy and quality, often to tight deadlines.

You will be expected to keep detailed electronic and paper based records; maintain a clean and safe laboratory working environment; and keep other people informed of any issues that might affect meeting a deadline. The tasks involved in this role are varied, including manual handling of weights up to 15 Kg, as well as computer-based work.

Working as part of a small team, you will be trained in a varied range of skills and techniques. Some flexibility in working hours is required and once you are able to work without supervision, you will be asked to cover weekend work on a rota basis.

They do not require a degree for this role, since full training will be given. However, they will expect applicants to have an active interest in science, particularly Chemistry, and to have a minimum GCSE in Science. Being able to demonstrate any work experience in a laboratory environment is ideal. Or alternatively, if you can show that you are able to work to high levels of precision and accuracy in an environment where deadlines have to be met and workloads can vary, we would be interested in your application.

Our Client has a formal career progression framework within the department and can offer comprehensive training and support.

Closing Date: 25th August
Interviews: 4th September
