Senior Development Chemist- Challs International are looking for an enthusiastic, experienced Senior Development Chemist to join us on a permanent basis based in Hadleigh, Suffolk.

You may have seen one of our brands on TV, on social media or on shelf in any one of the major supermarkets in the UK or elsewhere in the world. Here at Challs International, we don’t just innovate and manufacture cleaning products, we develop new brands and new categories. We expect to lead whilst others follow.

As a family owned business, with family values, what we are most proud of is our team, or as we like to consider them, our extended family. We recruit the best talent and then develop them. Not surprisingly our staff retention is very high.

We are now recruiting for an experienced Senior Development Chemist to join our award-winning team, reporting to the Technical Manager. This is no ordinary development chemist role. The company is going through an exciting stage of investment, growth and development and this position will play a key role in developing new products that lead the market, not just in the UK but around the world.

We are looking for someone with proven experience in household products, including, liquids and powders, and bleach-based formulations. Has a track record in developing new products from conception through to production. Has good knowledge of applicable regulations e.g. REACH, CLP and BPR. This role will also have responsibility for managing and developing a small team. You will of course need to work closely with other departments (marketing, production, sales etc).

This is a role that has significant scope to grow and develop.

If you want to be part of a very successful team and have what it takes, we’d love to hear from you.
