The Opportunity

Calling all creative scientists who have the vision, perseverance and resilience to translate their creativity into innovative flavour and fragrance solutions. You’ll be part of an ever-growing Innovation team here in Bury St. Edmunds, developing new products and managing existing product lines, always working to exceed our customers’ expectations.

What it’s like to work here

We’ve been making the world taste better since 1886 and sell over 3000 products in more than 90 countries, but we’re only just getting started. We’re on an exciting journey and have ambitious plans to become the indispensable partner of choice for the world’s leading flavour and fragrance houses, beverage and consumer brands.

On joining Treatt, you’ll become one of over 300 international experts, working together to collectively surprise and delight our customers. Nothing is more important to us than the happiness of our people as without them, we’d never succeed.

What you’ll be doing

Here in Innovation no two days are ever going to be the same so be prepared to buckle up if you’re brave enough to join the team. With your experience in extraction technologies and wet chemistry techniques you’ll work both independently and collaboratively to suggest new avenues of research with a view to commercialising these suggestions through to fully developed, innovative processes and product lines. You will present your research, to both colleagues and clients, with an unsurpassed vigour and air of brilliance that leaves no doubt in spectators’ minds about your passion, enthusiasm and commitment to the project.

You’ll also support colleagues in other departments with continuous development work, advising on technical issues relating to routine production or troubleshooting and improvement of the manufacturing processes, always proud to be the ‘go-to’ person in the organisation.

What we're looking for

We’re searching for an exceptional R&D scientist with experience in product and/or process development and managing research projects – maybe you’re in a graduate position and looking to develop your career or are an established R&D Scientist looking for a fresh challenge – if you’re innovative, organised and resilient and always aim to exceed your customers’ expectations then we want to hear from you!

We are looking for someone who has a degree in science based discipline, and wants to work in an environment that celebrates progress, teamwork and dedication.

We want you to love your work and bring that energy to the job every day, no matter what the task. You’ll be someone who keeps up to date with the latest technologies and research and is always willing to share their knowledge with colleagues.

You should be personable, friendly and supportive, acknowledging that you’ll get to work with colleagues from all seniority levels across all departments on a daily basis and have contact with a variety of customers across the world.

What we’ll do for you

We have a pretty impressive benefits package that’s designed to look after you and your career during your time with us. With everything from private healthcare and life assurance to holiday purchase scheme and share schemes, we’ve got you covered.
