As part of the company values in investing in talent of the future, High Force Research Ltd has recently recruited a further three graduates to join the team from North East Universities.
The newly created graduate roles will support the business growth strategy over the next 12 months, and adds to the three graduates recruited earlier this year.
Erin McLaughlin graduated this summer from Newcastle University with a Masters Chemistry (MChem) where she focussed on inorganic, organic and physical chemistry; Anya Nelson completed her studies at the University of Northumbria and Rebecca Mott has graduated from Durham University, all at Masters level.
Rebecca commented “I have been working at HFR for about two months now and have found it to be a great platform to use and develop the skills I gained at university. The training has been great and I have already progressed from the training with more experienced chemists to working more independently on projects. HFR is a very friendly place to work and in the short time I have been working here, I have made great relationships with everyone and have been able to work confidently. It has been the perfect company to begin work as a graduate.”
Jane Klotz, HR Manager, added: “Chemical and life sciences is a growing job market and recruiting talent for the future is a key strategy at HFR to support the business growth through succession planning. Having recruited 3 graduates earlier this year, it is such a positive news story to be able to provide an additional three job opportunities for graduates. This recruitment also allows us to progress existing staff through their career development and expand the skill sets within the company. We greatly benefit from being based in the North East where there is a lot of opportunity for graduates to move on from their studies into the workplace.”
