What we can offer you

As a Croda graduate, you will need to combine practical and strategic skills with imagination. In return we can offer you early responsibility and a high degree of motivation and satisfaction, in short, real experiences, real responsibilities and real jobs.

We offer a competitive benefits package, which incorporates a starting salary of approximately £29,000 for the Engineering Development Programme and approximately £25,000 for all other programmes, a defined benefit pension scheme, 25 days paid holiday, share incentive plans plus a £3,000 relocation package. You can find out more information about us and what programmes we have available by visiting our website.

Challenging work experiences and appropriate training form the basis for developing your career with Croda. We design opportunities to suit individual needs; how you apply that knowledge is then your responsibility with encouragement and support from the company as you will be driving your own career from day one.

Crodas development initiatives are designed to combine the intellectual rigours of academic life with the skills required in business. Our programmes include residential training which takes place over five modules and is completed during the first two years of your employment with Croda. You will cover topics such as personal effectiveness, communication, influencing people, teamwork, meeting skills and managing change. You'll go through this as a graduate year group which provides the opportunity to develop a network of people you can stay in touch with as you move through the business.


We recruit up to 10 science and engineering graduates with a 2:1 degree in a relevant subject area obtained within the last five years. You will also be required to have fluent English and ideally, although not essential, at least one other European language (French, Spanish or Dutch preferred).
