Airedale on the lookout for a young scientist
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
