The successful candidate will be involved in both activities and the role will involve significant collaboration with internal stakeholders and external contacts.

- Support our affiliates, manufacturing sites and toll processors in meeting any enforcement obligations by government agencies
In addition, the role may lead the implementation of future chemical substances registration projects (e.g. Eurasia, UK) or support implementation of existing projects
