I would strongly recommend a career in HR specifically in hospitality. It is a flexible career with lots of options and opportunities to travel. A qualification in HRM is a good start and gaining work experience is really important.

17 New Jobs for Wexford with UTC

17 new jobs are to be created with scientific company United Chemical Technologies (UTC). The US-based company is establishing a new European manufacturing facility in Wexford.

Recruitment will start immediately for five positions in production and product inspection, with full recruitment to be completed by 2017 . A senior European support specialist has already been employed for the Irish operation.

Based in Ardcavan Business Park on the outskirts of Wexford town, the operation will be a registered subsidiary of UCT Inc, which is headquartered in Bristol, Pennsylvania in the US.

UTC specialises in the field of silica-based solid phase extraction (SPE) technology, routinely used in clinical, forensic and environmental laboratories for the extraction of trace analytes in complex samples. The main functions of the Irish operation will include manufacturing, quality assurance, distribution and technical support services for the European market.

Employing over 100 people globally, UCT was introduced to Ireland through Connect Ireland, the company responsible for delivering the Government’s Succeed in Ireland initiative, as part of the Action Plan for Jobs, in association with IDA Ireland.

The careers area of the UTC website is available here. Recruitment details for the Wexford job roles have not yet been added.
