Chemistry Graduate

We have a vacancy for a Chemistry Graduate with work experience and excellent written and oral communication skills in English.  A Master’s degree and/or experience in Chemicals Regulation (including REACH) would be an advantage. 

You will assist with the development and analysis of chemicals policy and legislation for national governments and agencies in the UK and overseas as well as for the European Commission and the European Chemicals Agency.  

You will also work on studies for our industry clients on aspects of the REACH Regulation, mainly Authorisation and Restriction, as well as associated legislation.

The work will often involve analysis of the uses of particular chemicals and their possible alternatives based on data collated through desk-based research and stakeholder consultation (including telephone interviews).   The findings of your research and analysis must be presented in concise and well-written English in order to make a significant contribution to the evolution of chemical risk management at a national or international level.

RPA offers a friendly and hard-working environment. The starting salary will be competitive (probably in the range from £25k to £35k) and will be commensurate with experience and expertise. Applications are welcome from suitably qualified individuals with an interest in RPA's work and who have a legal right to work in the UK.  The post is now open and the successful applicant will be based at our head office in Norfolk with the possibility of choosing to move to our London office in the longer term.

Please send a covering email and CV to Alex DeMarco at and quote RPA76 when applying.  The closing date is 28th October 2015.
