RSSL: Graduate Scientist

Reading Scientific Services Ltd (RSSL) is a cutting-edge Contract Research Organisation (CRO), providing research, analysis and consultancy to the food and pharmaceutical sectors. Whether we are creating new products, validating medicines or solving investigations, we take pride in being a leader in our field, serving clients from across 60 countries.

In 2019, we’ve been recognised as Enlightened Employer, Women in Business and Thames Valley Tech finalists and in 2018 one of our family earned the Food & Drink Federation’s Scientist of the Year.

Enriched by our parent company Mondelēz International, our diverse team includes 23 nationalities from 300 members, creating a family feel as we strive towards our mission of “Science Enhancing Lives”.

We deliver science with service

Mondelēz International is a world leader in FMCG such as chocolate, biscuits, gum and candy. We market our products in 165 countries and have annual net revenues of $26 billion. We employ 2,400 scientists across the globe, many of which are based at our Global Science Centre (RSSL) in Reading, UK. Even if you’re not familiar with our name, you’ve almost certainly heard of our billion-dollar brands like Cadbury, Milka, Belvita, Prince, and Oreo.

You may wonder how a large FMCG organisation relates to the world of pharmaceutical, healthcare, bio-pharmaceutical and consumer goods. We do this at RSSL by combining our scientific expertise and cutting-edge equipment, with dedicated specialist teams to support these other industries.

Big enough to reach the top, small enough to help you get off the ground

Are you a results-focused, bright and enthusiastic individual? Would you relish the opportunity to work in a laboratory environment, helping world-leading brands and SMEs develop and supply products that are safe, innovative, and of the highest quality?

As a Graduate Scientist at RSSL, you will be based within one of our cutting-edge laboratories, providing services to our external customers and in some cases, Mondelēz. You will have the chance to apply your academic learning in a friendly and intellectually challenging environment. Training and coaching, through industry experts and senior mentors, together with resources from Mondelez International University will be provided to support your ongoing technical and personal development.
