The purpose of this role is to lead polymer science projects, supporting innovation needs for the Health and Nutrition business units. You will provide direct technical support to solve product formulation or application challenges, identify unique and innovative product concepts, and develop prototypes for consumer testing & feasibility. 

You will succeed because…

  • You are a subject matter expert, you are the key contact for in-depth knowledge both internally and externally, you have strong stakeholder management and influencing skills, and can develop relationships to ensure delivery against a timeline. 
  • You have a PhD or equivalent in a relevant scientific discipline, and either industry or academic experience focusing on polymer chemistry, colloidal sciences, formulation, and processing. Experience in molecular simulation and computer modelling, and polymer characterisation techniques is desirable but not essential.

You’ll get to make an impact like never before. You’ll be responsible for your own projects - we can’t wait to listen to your ideas. The products you help us get out there will make people’s lives better. Our iconic brands will provide an incredible platform for you. And our dynamic, ownership-driven culture will help bring the very best out of you, every day.

Even if you don’t meet every point on the job description, if this role and our company feels like a good fit for you, we still want to hear from you. Come and join a team whose purpose is to protect, heal and nurture in the relentless pursuit of a cleaner and healthier world.
