Brexit is coming and we’re helping Ireland and Irish industry prepare

A Career in National and EU Chemicals Policy

We are currently recruiting for a Chemical Risk Management Advisor and a Socio-Economic Manager.

The UK is due to exit the EU on 30 March 2019 and this will result in challenges and opportunities for Ireland and Irish industry who manufacture, import, use and transport chemicals. As the lead Irish Authority on Chemicals, we have a key role in supporting Ireland and Irish business interests at home and in Europe before and after the UK exit.

You will play a pivotal role in shaping EU policy on chemicals by actively participating in EU technical committees, providing technical, risk management and socio-economic analysis on particular chemicals used by Irish Industry. You will also support Government and Authority initiatives to assist Irish businesses facing Brexit challenges and opportunities.

So if you’re looking for a role where you can shape national and European policy, a role with the potential for enormous personal satisfaction, then a job with us is right for you.
