Joining the core team within the R&D Department, you'll take part in a wide variety of activities, managing project teams as required, carrying out studies and developing solutions. 

Using a project based system, you will produce rearing systems for insects and mites, utilise internal production testing to implement new formulas and deliver innovations to improve production systems.

You'll need professional communication skills, the ability to work well in a team environment, meet challenging objectives and work to guidelines.
