Job Description

Performance Fluids Ltd is a high growth company which designs, develops and markets high performance industrial lubricants and process aids.

Due to the expansion of the company we are currently looking for a graduate chemist to join the company who will, after sufficient training, manage the R & D activities of the business. The post holder will report to the Operations Manager.

The role will involve;

  • Creating and being responsible for an on-site testing and development area.
  • Managing the R & D projects of the business.
  • Ensuring the Company is REACH compliant.
  • Designing new market driven products based on requests from the sales team.
  • Liaising with external laboratories who provide analytical testing.
  • Development of global production specifications to be used by our licensees around the world.
  • Ensuring that products manufactured globally adhere to these specifications through analytical testing and electronic monitoring of trends.
  • Provide technical support to our sales team.

As over 85% of our sales are export related it is envisaged that R & D Chemist will support the management team with our international business, which will entail regular international travel.

As this role will require significant customer and supplier contact it is important that the post holder has good interpersonal skills and commercial acumen as well as being able to understand and explain chemical concepts to non-chemists.

If required assistance will be given with relocation.

Salary: £20,000.00 to £22,000.00 /year
