Lucite International - Inspiring a diverse workforce

When we take people on we want them to be our future leaders.

What our Chemical Engineers do:

What’s in it for you:

We have summer placement opportunity at our Wilton RT&E facility for an outstanding undergraduate looking for the chance to gain hands on experience working alongside our engineering group and the R&D team, which may involve working on tour pilot plant and other strategic projects.

You will have an opportunity to develop your knowledge and work on real issues. We provide a supervisor to help and guide you during your placement in which you will be challenged and stretched whilst gaining invaluable experience to set you on your chosen career path.

We believe that by being open, honest and respectful with each other and working together as a team, we will be able to deliver our promises. If you thrive in a driven and collaborative environment, then Mitsubishi Chemical UK is the company for you.

The skills we’re looking for:

If you are a talented undergraduate expecting at least a 2:1 in chemical or process engineering and due to start your final year at University in Autumn 2021, we can offer you an exciting and challenging Summer placement.  Driven and committed with a strong team ethic, you’ll need to have a high degree of personal accountability

What we offer:

With our strong value focus of releasing individual personal potential, you will have access to personal development as well as a competitive salary and benefits package.

If you would like the opportunity to join the global leader in acrylics we would be interested in hearing from you!
