  • Prepare and deliver customer reports, internal reports, presentations on findings
  • Generate novel /innovative solutions and improvements as part of developing new products
  • Support the writing of technical plans and work packages for project proposals
  • Occasionally carry out supporting enzyme analysis work in laboratory if the incumbent already possesses a laboratory background

Qualifications and Experience

  • BSc or MSc minimum in relevant science subject (Biochemical ideal but not essential)
  • Applicants MUST have experience with process development / process engineering AND data analysis from any industry sector
  • Ideally 1-2 years’ relevant work experience (but PhD graduates with the right attitude may be considered)
  • Strong experience collating/ analysing/ reporting on data sets
  • Previous project management experience would be preferred but can be trained
