Biocatalysts is a customised enzyme discovery, development and manufacturing company based in the UK, with a subsidiary in Illinois, USA. We work with our customers, many of which are the top blue chip food companies, to provide unique enzyme solutions that will help them solve process problems, valorise waste, facilitate a biochemical reaction or deliver competitive advantage through using a unique product.
Due to our on-going commitment to expanding our product portfolio, which is central to accelerating our growth, we have created a new opportunity for a Production Technician to become part of our highly motivated Operations Team.
This role is primarily to carry out the manufacture of enzymes in a food grade environment and to carry out warehouse activities to ensure our products are despatched on time. You will need to have strong attention to detail and accuracy along with experience in following standard operating procedures, working with and maintaining/cleaning manufacturing equipment.
You will have a minimum of 2 GCSE’s grades A-C including Maths & English OR equivalent OR NVQ (L3) in Process or Manufacturing Operations or similar. Having a forklift truck licence is not essential but will give you a distinct advantage.
You will have a positive and ‘can do’ attitude, be able to work flexibly and change your normal hours or on a shift basis which will attract additional payment.
If you enjoy practical work with an enthusiasm for learning and continuous improvement, are friendly and have the motivation to succeed, we would love to learn more about you.
