Why work with us?Careers at Dextra

One of NZP-Dextra's core objectives is to “attract, retain and motivate great staff”.  Accordingly, we are seeking the most effective and dynamic employees, who are themselves looking for a career with a company who value their people and provide an environment where inputs are not only welcomed, but expected.

We offer competative, negotiable salaries as well as a range of company benefits.

Unfortunately we can only consider applications from those allowed to work in the UK and we do not accept speculative applications from recruitment agents.


Senior Chemist

We welcome speculative applications and are currently recruiting for Senior Chemists to join our expanding team. We are currently developing exciting new technologies across a range of therapeutic areas and our team regularly publishes and files novel IP. If you have a PhD or equivalent experience in synthetic organic chemistry, especially in, but not limited to, the fields of carbohydrates or bile acids and can demonstrate drive and a passion for your subject, we’d love to hear from you.
