Pioneering Research Lead (AE1687)

Salary: £40-65,000

Do you think outside the box and have experience creating innovative cosmetics?

Are you a visionary thinker who likes to break the mould?

This is an exciting opportunity to inspire our Technical Product Development team by pushing the boundaries on product formulation with your ‘blue sky’ thinking approach. As Pioneering Research Lead you will drive innovation from all product angles, ingredients, claims, packaging, sustainability, consumer desire, trends and formulation.

You will work on short term innovation as well as the 3-5-year plan, managing the product lifecycle from concept to shelf as well as presenting your vision to key stakeholders and board members.

This is a busy role where your experience in beauty, skin care and wellness R&D will assist you to identify, develop and commercialise new products and update core products in line with the brand vision.

We are looking for a creative problem solver to inspire innovation and find scientific solutions for consumer desires.

You are constantly keeping your eye on current trends, new cosmetic ingredients, testing capabilities and technology development as well as competitor activity, always planning where you can take the brand in the longer term. You know what works and what won’t and always have a eye on what will excite the consumer.

You have a proven track record in providing scientific and technical support with the ability to translate this into cutting-edge yet achievable concepts that will consistently create the wow factor.

A PhD, MSc or BSc in Science or Engineer-driven discipline is essential for the role.

Are you up to the creative challenge? If so, apply today.
