Job title: Shift QC Chemist

Salary: £27,000 per annum

Shift pattern: 4 week rotation earlies, days, back shift and nights


I am currently working for a manufacturer and supplier of speciality chemicals, located near the city of Stoke on Trent. They are part of a multinational, blue chip group supplying their formulated products to the mining, industrial, automotive and civil engineering industries.

The role of shift chemist is responsible for:

* Laboratory analysis using a full range of test methods of samples for the production process, including manufactured product, filling, flushing and bulk samples
* Advising of required formulation adjustments for non-conforming products
* Advising adjustments required to improve first time pass rates.
* Advising on line flushing requirements and quantities for vessels, filling lines and bulk loading equipment.
* Product rework (sampling, testing and deciding if product is usable to be re-blended.)
* Control of bulk raw material intake


The ideal candidate will be educated to degree level or equivalent in chemistry or a related subject. You will be an experienced shift worker who can deal with ad-hoc changes when required. The shift pattern is a 4 shift system (earlies, days, lates, nights) working 8 hour shifts including some weekend work.
