Opportunities for interim, contract and temporary positions

Industry Associate – Sustainable Polymers Initiative

The Royal Society of Chemistry seeks an Industry Associate for our Sustainable Polymers Initiative. This outstanding opportunity is currently available on a part-time (21 hours per week) temporary basis for eighteen months and can be based at our Cambridge Science Park office, or home-based within the UK.

Following the recent publication of the report Polymers in liquid formulations - Opportunities for a sustainable future, we have launched the Sustainable PLFs initiative and convened a multisectoral industry Task Force to turn the recommendations of the report into action across the PLFs producing and using industries.

Polymers in liquid formulations are found in millions of household and industrial products and play a vital role in our society by improving food productivity, treating wastewater, protecting buildings, infrastructure and transport, as well as creating consumer products that promote health and wellbeing.

We are looking for an individual with the necessary expertise to influence at a senior level and support the Sustainable PLFs initiative. This role will suit someone looking to make a real impact on a vital sustainability issue, who enjoys influencing and also delivery.
