Why would you work with Dr Paul Mears as your scientific specialist recruiter at Science Solutions?

I focus solely on matching scientists to positions in the UK speciality chemical industry, which is where my own experience and network position me best given a background working in the speciality chemicals and fragrance and flavours sectors. I completed academic studies with a PhD in organic chemistry at the University of Manchester, which followed a BSc in the University of Leeds’ famous Colour & Polymer Chemistry department. Following a short post-doctoral research post I built up three years’ experience in recruiting scientists into new jobs.
