CWA International is looking to recruit postgraduate and graduate scientists with a good degree and who are energetic and motivated to apply their knowledge to the international trade of agricultural commodities, typically arising from the maritime sector.
A background in, or exposure to, agronomy, plant biology, plant pathology, crop protection, or pre- and post-harvest biology, food science and technology, and/or a thorough understanding of the principles governing the bulk storage and transport of agricultural, food and feed cargoes (e.g. applied physics, sugar chemistry) would present an advantage.
CWA undertakes investigations worldwide into the loss of, and damage to, consignments of food, analyse the situation and advise on causation, mitigation and prevention of loss.
Successful applicants will need to combine a broad scientific knowledge with common sense to determine the cause of loss and damage and to suggest potential remedial actions.
The position is a full-time one, and the successful candidate will benefit from initial training and mentoring.
CWA is based in central London, but flexibility to travel internationally at short notice is required - up to 10 weeks a year, potentially - to make inspections and gather evidence.
The company offers a competitive salary to match experience, with the benefit of an established productivity bonus scheme.
Further information on the firm and its activities can be found on the CWA website.
Applicants invited for interview will need to do an aptitude test (remotely) approximately one week before the interview.
If interested, please apply including a detailed CV, current remuneration package and details of any notice period/availability by post or email (email@example.com).
