Airedale on the look­out for a young sci­en­tist

Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS -

A YORK­SHIRE chem­i­cals firm is of­fer­ing an op­por­tu­nity to a young sci­en­tist who wants to carve out a long-term ca­reer in a fast-grow­ing sec­tor.

Airedale Chem­i­cal, which is based in Cross Hills in North York­shire, has signed up to the Gov­ern­ment’s ap­pren­tice­ship scheme. The chem­i­cal man­u­fac­turer is now look­ing for a dye lab ap­pren­tice to join its team of ex­perts.

The fi­nance direc­tor at Airedale Chem­i­cal, Craig Thom­son, said: “We’re look­ing for an am­bi­tious and pas­sion­ate can­di­date who wants to start their ca­reer at a com­pany steeped in ex­pe­ri­ence and ex­per­tise.

“We be­lieve this scheme will be in­valu­able to the fu­ture of the com­pany and is an amaz­ing op­por­tu­nity for the suc­cess­ful ap­pli­cant to make a fly­ing start to their sci­en­tific ca­reer with a per­ma­nent po­si­tion in our lab.

“We’re plan­ning to roll­out more ap­pren­tice­ship ini­tia­tives in the fu­ture across other de­part­ments, pro­vid­ing a re­newed range of skill-sets through­out the busi­ness.

“This is also a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity for us to cre­ate more lo­cal jobs.”

The ideal ap­pren­tice will be a post-A level stu­dent with ex­cel­lent grades in chem­istry and math­e­mat­ics, a keen eye for de­sign and an in­ter­est in dye sci­ence.

Mr Thom­son added: “This com­pany was founded on dye chem­i­cals more than 40 years ago, so the suc­cess­ful can­di­date would ben­e­fit from our her­itage and decades of ex­pe­ri­ence, learn­ing highly-use­ful skills ‘on the job’.”

The scheme is sup­ported by the Airedale Foun­da­tion, Airedale Chem­i­cal’s char­i­ta­ble arm, which so far this year, has funded a new ed­u­ca­tion part­ner­ship, a com­mu­nity de­fib­ril­la­tor and spon­sor­ship of sev­eral lo­cal sport­ing as­so­ci­a­tions.

This is a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity for us to cre­ate more lo­cal jobs. Craig Thom­son, fi­nance direc­tor at Airedale Chem­i­cal
