  • Emission control catalysts

We also offer services in the refining and management of platinum group metals, chemical process and technology licensing, diagnostic services for the oil and gas industries, and pharmaceutical research and development.

We have continued to develop our technology for 200 years, demonstrating the company's ability to maintain world leadership by adapting constantly to rapidly changing customer needs. We take R&D seriously, with around £200m invested last year and 1500 staff working in our Technology Centres in the UK and the US.

Our graduate opportunities are as diverse as our organisation. We offer both structured rotational programmes for future leaders, and a direct entry route where you’ll join one of our business units from day 1, developing deep technical expertise.   Whichever route you choose, you will be given real responsibilities working within a team environment on new or existing projects.  We’ll challenge, support, develop and reward you throughout your journey with us.
