It’s not all that common for a search firm to get opportunities in our industry within Research & Development for professionals with only 2 years of experience but that is the threshold our client is seeking and preferring no more than 5 years total within Personal Care. This could be in skincare, cosmetics, haircare or OTC but they believe in this approach to hiring so much they offer top dollar to bring about the right people even with limited experience.

The company has been experiencing astounding growth in the past 5 years in particular and anticipates this position being critical to their continued expansion meaning additional promotional opportunities are likely with continued expansion. Do you have an open-minded approach to your work, employ solid scientific principles when solving problems, and have a customer-focused sense of urgency? This could be the right fit for you! If you are more prone towards a generalist’s day with lots of interaction with overlapping company departments and enjoy small amounts of international travel, we want to talk to you.
