The Role
We are searching for an experienced laboratory professional who can demonstrate a strong knowledge of quality and assessment within textiles, toys or a related industry within consumer products. You will be able to demonstrate experience of a variety of chemical tests with a specific knowledge of gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS).

The key requirement is a strong laboratory and chemist background, excellent communication skills, drive and enthusiasm, a passion for the role and the ability to develop knowledge, expertise and credibility across different schemes. Project management experience is highly desirable.
