Job Description

Fantastic day shift permanent job available at firm that has won awards for being a great company to work for. Amazing benefits package (listed below) as well as above market rate pay at a company that is growing, in spite of the pandemic.

We wish to recruit someone who can do a little bit of everything, working across several departments and therefore utilising different skills. You will need great IT skills, and the ability to work in a hands-on role across lab, production and office environments.

As a Product Development Technician you will get involved in helping to develop new products for the company – you will do this by supporting trials of new product formulations to enable their launch. The team you work as part of helps to define manufacturing parameters for these new products before they become commercially available, so having a problem solving mind-set and the ability to contribute to providing solutions to hiccups in processes is needed. It’ll certainly be an interesting job!!

This is a hands-on role, so the ideal candidate will have experience working with machines or in a mechanical role, but also the ability to operate the ERP system that feeds into product development reports. 

The benefits at this company are superb:

  • Pension contribution of 10% by employer
  • 8 x death in service benefit and long term disability scheme if enrolled in the pension
  • 25 days holidays plus bank hols, 3 days to be used for Christmas shutdown
  • BHFS health cashback scheme 50% subsidised by the company (can also cover family)
  • Fitness reimbursement of up to £300 per year towards gym membership and other activities
  • Access to a staff Discounts Website with lots of discounts and other benefits and price reductions for everyday items

The job will provide challenging tasks, short decision making processes and the chance to work as part of a team that generates the future products that the company sell – all in all a brilliant opportunity that doesn’t come along very often. 

Standard working hours are 8.30am – 5.00pm, however occasional overtime may be required.
