What it’s like working in this role

On a day to day basis the Science Manufacturing Technician will be assisting the Production Chemists in the manufacture of our products. Activities are recorded in batch sheets and notebooks

This will include:

• Preparing equipment for use
• Preparing raw materials
• Monitoring the chemical reactions
• Sampling
• Discharging and cleaning of the equipment.

As we manufacture high impact aroma chemicals many of our products are highly odorous.



Whilst previous experience is great, we at Tiro are always open to wildcards. We’re not just interested in experience and qualifications; we’re looking for someone with the right attitude and aptitude to fit right in at Endeavour .


It’s about enthusiasm, not school results. In our experience the most successful apprentices are those who have driven to find out more about the sector, can be up front about what they do and don’t already know, are considerate, self-reflective, and impatient to learn the job role!

Skills and characteristics

The ideal candidate will be reliable and highly motivated. They will have a keen eye for detail and be able to work to instruction. They will be a methodical, accurate person who take a sense of satisfaction from ensuring we get the testing parameters right every time for our customers.

Even if that doesn’t sound quite like you, but you still think you could do a great job in the role, get in touch. Someone who knows their own mind and isn’t afraid to have an opinion. You’ll give the role your all and will fundamentally be hungry to learn and most importantly willing to take the first step into a life changing career.


So how does the apprenticeship work?

At Tiro we’re obsessed with changing lives through science and technology apprenticeships so we can’t wait to have you on board.

Over 24 months, you’ll devote 20% of your 37.5 hours of working time towards a Level 3 Science Manufacturing Technician apprenticeship. You’ll be trained by an expert tutor from Tiro as well as an experienced mentor at Endeavour Speciality Chemicals who together, will make sure you develop the knowledge, skills, and work habits you’ll need to succeed in your career. The best part? You’ll be earning while you learn.
