An opportunity to join an established team providing REACH regulatory testing and consultancy services to UK and EU chemical companies. This is a desk-based role ideal for a chemist or regulatory office with 1-3 years REACH experience.

Main duties will include working with colleagues to devise analytical and consultancy plans, assessing test material composition and likely regulatory issues, provision of regulatory advice, writing reports, and liaison with the company’s sponsors. You will also gain exposure to food contact legislation and testing – another service activity.

We are interested in hearing from candidates with 1-3 years’ REACH experience; any knowledge of substance ID would be very relevant.
