The closing date for this vacancy is Friday 3rd March 2023.

You will use your knowledge of horizon scanning to identify chemicals of concern and to accurately assess the impact for No7BC. You will provide robust summaries and recommendations of the impact to No7BC to facilitate decisions regarding any resource required to remove/replace any chemical of concern.

You will maintain the WBA Chemical Action List that details the chemicals that No7BC, Boots and all of our exclusive brands, prohibit and restrict in cosmetic and household cleaning products. Also responsible for:

• Responsible for undertaking horizon scanning activities to identify future chemical of concern to GB.
• Responsible for robust impact assessments and proposals for risk mitigation following the identification of chemicals of concern.
• In executing these responsibilities, you’ll be accountable for documenting and communicating decisions in an appropriate and timely manner.
• Build scientific expertise in chemistry and chemical risk management fields to drive continuous improvement of the products and protect the brands and business.

We offer our Support Office team members a flexible, hybrid working approach based upon empowerment, accountability, care and trust which includes a balanced mix of remote and office-based working - this will be discussed with you as part of the application process.

• A good knowledge of chemistry is essential, although a good knowledge of any scientific subject would be considered
• Demonstrated communication skills; you must be able to summarise and articulate technical information to diverse audiences both verbally and in writing to all levels of the organisation.
• You will have excellent IT skills as you will need to be able to manipulate complex data
• You must be able to manage multiple tasks and priorities, along with the ability to operate efficiently under continuous change
