The Opportunity

We are looking for a Matching Trainee to work within our Technical Department due to the existing post-holder returning to full-time study. If you’re a completer finisher with a great eye for detail and an interest in chemistry this could be the ideal job for you.

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.
We overcome challenges, always looking for the better way, working together as one big team.

We think Treatt is a great place to work, but don’t just take our word for it:

“Everyone wants your feedback and opinion; it feels like a place of study where nurturing and encouragement are the standard. It is very clear the hard work that goes into providing excellence for customers, but it is also very apparent that managers have the same goals for helping us all to progress.” – Anita Cooper, Analytical Chemist

“Treatt is in that perfect sweet spot of being small enough to have a friendly and supportive community but also has the resources to have big ideas which really push the boat out in terms of creativity. There is real support for you as a person here and that’s what makes it such a great place to work. The fragrance and flavour industry and Treatt as a whole is magical!” – Barney Wells, QC Laboratory Assistant

  • To make up tasting solutions as required, paying particular attention to hygiene and food safety and taking part in tasting trials.

What we're looking for

We are seeking a candidate with an interest in flavours and fragrances with a keen eye for detail and accuracy.
