Process and Analytical Chemists

​The Pharmaceutical industry develops, produces and markets new drugs for use as medication to be administered to patients and is at the heart of the Life Sciences sector.

Analytical Chemists are involved in a team that studies the physical and chemical properties of substances to determine the quality of drugs to ensure a high standard of safety is met. Analytical Chemists usually work in teams to support chemistry projects to develop and carry out the technical transfer of analytical methods and provide analytical support to Process Chemistry colleagues. 

Process Chemistry is the development of safe, practical processes for the construction of compounds selected from careful research. These Chemists are important for the pharmaceutical industry as well as the science industry in general as they also conduct lab tests to assess the success of projects. They work as part of a team to accelerate the discovery, development of complex small molecules for a healthier tomorrow.

Process Chemists work alongside Analytical Chemists who then experiment on what is already on the market.

The Responsibilities of these roles would include:

  • Supporting project teams operating on tight deadlines,  

  • Executing analytical work to meet project timelines with minimal supervision, 

  • Learning agility in the utilisation of new techniques to support projects,

  • Deliver new routes and processes for early-phase Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) and intermediates to enable mass scale-up, (process chemists only),

  • Deliver optimised processes for mid and late-phase APIs and intermediates to enable scale-up to pilot production facilities, (process chemists only),

  • Ability to solve complex scientific problems,  

  • Able to work effectively in a GMP laboratory,  

These Chemists would have a Higher or Bachelor Degree in Chemistry or Biochemistry, with knowledge of modern chemistry and relevant experience in the design and implementation of laboratory and field experiments. Most of the Chemists we place would be in London or in the Midlands around Nottingham.

At Kelly, we are committed to ensure that new medications are created in the best possible quality. That is why we recruit candidates who are equally passionate about the quality of drugs that come out into the market. The Chemists we recruit have a crucial role in improving the health of the people around us.

​If this sounds like the kind of job you would be interested in, get in touch with Kelly and find out about the opportunities we have available.

​Nottingham is a city in England's central Midlands area. Nottingham has been built and rebuilt several times since the medieval era.

Because of it feature, Nottingham has seen a regular influx of Batman fans throughout the year and is considered a hot spot for DC fans in the UK.

What Jobs Are Big In Nottingham?

Nottingham has a thriving Life Sciences industry. Nottingham is home to headquarters of several health and life science companies. These companies have made new advances in the way we live our healthy lives. A crucial part of these companies are obviously, the workers. People working in life sciences help change the way we view the world as we know it.

You can find out how Kelly support life science companies, or anyone who may have an interest in working in Life Sciences here.
