We’re at an exciting time in our development. We have tripled in size in just a few years, and we want you to contribute to our ambitious growth journey.

Synthomer is continuing a long and successful history. Organic growth combined with investment in carefully selected acquisitions (including one in 2021 that established our Adhesives Technologies division) has led to sustained geographic and product portfolio expansion.

There couldn’t be a better time to join us and help us build on this success story as well as shape our culture. You can have a real impact.

We’re always keen to hear from talented and ambitious people across a range of disciplines who believe they have what it takes to help us drive the business forward. In return, you can expect a rewarding and stimulating career with a wide range of benefits.

Help us meet the challenges of the future

Our polymers solutions are important ingredients in key global industries, such as construction, paints and coatings, healthcare, paper and packaging, and textiles. You can help us enhance performance and sustainability in these major sectors.

A stimulating, diverse and international environment

Our employees tell us they really value our culture. You’ll find yourself working with people with diverse backgrounds from around the world. We have an international outlook with potential opportunities for international assignments.

Personal development

A satisfying job is one that gives you the opportunities and support to develop. We provide targeted learning and development programmes, and you can anticipate early responsibility and the opportunity to make a real contribution to the company.

A competitive compensation package

As you’d expect from a leading global chemical company, Synthomer offers a very competitive compensation package.

Reward and recognition

At Synthomer, we celebrate success. Our global discretionary bonus scheme is transparent and includes elements based on company and business unit or site performance. And because safety, health and the environment are a top priority for us, we reward performance in these areas.

We also have global award schemes such as our Innovation Awards. These honour Synthomer employees who drive growth, improve business or operations performance, or enhance the sustainability of our product and processes through scientific and engineering achievements.

To celebrate day-to-day achievements within our teams, peer-to-peer recognition schemes are being implemented to spotlight employees who have demonstrated true role modelling and have surpassed expectations regarding our core values.

What our people say

Our regular employee survey, Your Voice, gives us a great indication of what it’s like to work at Synthomer.

In 2021 we achieved a participation rate of 73% (compared to 63% in 2019).

We anonymously survey overall engagement and other specific categories of our culture. The results tell us what we’re doing well, but also where there is room for improvement. This is vital feedback that helps us continuously improve our working culture.

Our overall engagement score increased 8% over the comparable 2019 score and it is promising to see that key pillars of our organization such as Safety & Health, Ethics & Compliance and Core Values are scoring beyond 80% favourable rates.
