Croda is a global speciality chemical company inspired by nature. We produce the most innovative range of renewable, naturally derived ingredients in the world. You probably don’t know it, but you are already benefiting from our work as our pioneering products are vital to many leading brands. We are committed to minimising our impact on the environment, developing our people and supporting local communities. We are passionate and excited about how we can develop and utilise new technologies to shape and inspire changes within the dynamic market sectors we work in.
We have an excellent opportunity for you to join our 2022 Graduate Intake. Our Engineering Development Programme is a rotational scheme made up of three, twelve month placements. These will likely be based at our UK locations but European placements may also be possible. This programme will open up the opportunity to be involved in all aspects of the engineering profession, ranging from basic research to plant commissioning. You will manage projects and be expected to contribute and take responsibility for project delivery from the outset. You will gain exposure to different plant equipment and processes at a number of our manufacturing sites over the course of the scheme.
During the programme, you will receive on-the-job training and attend a five module residential training programme which focuses on developing your personal and business skills. This, together with a supportive mentoring scheme, buddy system and regular progress reviews with your manager, will ensure you have the opportunity to develop your knowledge, skills and experience which will help you on your way to achieving your career aspirations.
As a business, it’s really important to us that we find the best person for the job and that you have the best opportunity to succeed in the role. To help, we have outlined our expectations for the role and what core skills and experiences we require as well as what would make you an ideal fit. In turn, we hope this helps you evaluate if this is the right job for you.
Croda offer a competitive graduate benefits package. This incorporates a starting salary of approximately £29,000, a defined benefit pension scheme, 25 days paid holiday plus bank holidays, access to share incentive plans plus a £3,000 relocation package per placement.
Shortlisted candidates will be invited to complete an additional application form plus online aptitude testing in the first instance and then if successful, they will be invited to an assessment event.
