The chemicals industry is facing stiff competition for talent from other highly regulated industries and is often seen as less attractive in regards to financial compensation compared to areas like Life Sciences and Consumer Goods. The margins and complexity of the products in the Chemicals area make for a highly innovation focussed approach to be successful. The “best in class” of the sector in areas such as supply chain, IT, digital and more is also somewhat behind but this does create huge transformational opportunities for the right talent.

Walter James partner with several clients including global public companies, VC backed SME’s, start-ups and family owned organisations to provide proactive and strategic human capital consultancy services throughout the chemicals sector.

We work with clients on talent change and transformation programs in the following areas:

  • Polymers & Plastics
  • Speciality Chemicals (Adhesives, Coatings, Sealants)
  • AgroChemicals
  • PetroChemicals
  • Consumer Chemicals
  • Health & Nutrition
  • Animal Health
  • Diagnostics

Walter James have worked with some of the most recognised brands in the chemicals sector and each consultant working within our Chemicals Practice have significant experience and understanding of the complexity of the sector.
