WMG is looking to recruit a Project Engineer, initially until 30/09/2024, to undertake work on the development and scale up of hydrometallurgical recovery of battery materials. The work deals specifically with refining of cobalt, nickel and manganese from end of life batteries with aim of delivering a patentable process that can be scaled up.
The successful candidate will use their chemical and or engineering knowledge to combine WMG’s lithium recovery process with a hydrometallurgical recovery process, allowing for the complete recovery of the battery metals. This is an exciting opportunity to work in one of the hottest fields in scientific research.
We will provide a great range of benefits which include an attractive pension scheme, 30 days holiday plus bank holidays and Christmas closure, some fantastic savings on a wide range of products and services, and excellent learning and development opportunities.
At WMG we are committed to supporting staff to achieve their potential.

We are supportive of staff with caring responsibilities including a generous maternity/paternity/adoption/parental leave policy, and onsite childcare facilities. We will consider applications for employment on a part-time or other flexible working basis, even where a position is advertised as full-time, unless there are operational or other objective reasons why it is not possible to do so.
