  • To supply a technical service to customer enquiries and problems
  • To maintain current awareness and keep abreast of the latest scientific and technological developments relevant to the business and make use of that knowledge to continually improve and optimise the profitability of the products manufactured by the Company
  • Provide technical assistance during plant and laboratory trials including the flexibility to provide technical support outside of normal hours as necessary
  • Work collaboratively with other company locations which will include travel both within the UK and abroad
  • Use tools and resources which are available, e.g. SciFinder, to determine the most viable synthetic routes for new processes
  • Develop plant fits for new processes based on processes developed within the Company’s laboratories or based on technical information supplied by our customers
  • Assist in the development of analytical methods in support of the business
  • Prepare regular written reports covering work undertaken
