R-TECH Materials is offering an opportunity for a highly motivated and experienced professional metallurgist/materials scientist to join our talented, growing team. The role will include some demanding technical challenges, and the opportunity to become a significant part of our future growth strategy.

Our consultancy team specialises in plant integrity and failure analysis for the power, petrochemical and process industries, where we have a global client base, and a growing reputation. We also have a UKAS accredited test laboratory specialising in the testing of steel products for the construction industry, and composite materials across a wide range of engineering applications.

Due to the expansion of our plant integrity business, we are currently seeking to recruit a metallurgist/materials scientist to join our team of professional engineers. The position will involve a combination of plant-based and laboratory-based work, including inspection, condition assessment and data analysis. The role is expected to include a significant amount of failure analysis, using our state-of-the-art equipment.

The role would suit a candidate with a strong first degree in metallurgy, materials science or related engineering discipline. Some industrial experience and contacts, particularly in the process industries is highly desirable.  The candidate must have a sound engineering background, strong analytical and communication skills, and be confident in client-facing scenarios. They must be prepared to work flexibly, both in the UK and overseas as part of a dynamic and ambitious team.

Alongside our commercial interests, we have a strong track record in research and development, and there will be the opportunity for the right candidate to be involved in leading edge materials research. Where appropriate, this could be supported through an external masters research degree.

The position will be based at our laboratory in Port Talbot, South Wales. A competitive salary and benefits package will be offered based on the candidate’s qualifications and experience.
