Inspiring science, enhancing life
As a global leader in sustainable technologies, we apply our cutting-edge science to create solutions with our customers that make a real difference to the world around us.
We’ve been leaders in our field for more than 200 years, applying unrivalled scientific expertise to enable cleaner air, improved health and the more efficient use of our planet's natural resources.
And our story doesn’t end there. Through continued investment in sound research and development, we’re tackling the world’s big challenges into our third century and beyond.
With a degree-level qualification or PhD under your belt, you'll be looking for a challenging environment where you can learn even more and be rewarded for the skills and expertise you develop.
Join one of our graduate career paths to take part in our journey and make a difference to health and the environment on a global scale.
Johnson Matthey’s core programme lasts for two years during which you will experience three eight-month placements within your chosen career path each in a different business areas and locations in the UK. This gives you an exciting opportunity to advance your career as well as quickly experience and develop a breadth of understanding of one of the world’s leading companies in sustainable technologies. As JM moves into its third century, working more collaboratively is key, and being part of our Graduate Programme will put you at the heart of this as you move around our different businesses with each placement.
Whichever career path you choose, the structure of the Graduate Programme is designed to challenge you. It will help you develop a broad understanding of JM, build your technical expertise and equip you with the skills and knowledge needed by our future leaders. In addition to providing a robust and challenging programme, we also believe strongly in mentoring and coaching, so you will be assigned a mentor who will provide support and career advice throughout your journey.
We're currently recruiting in three main areas:
Innovating and improving
We adapt and embrace new ideas to make us stronger and our world cleaner and healthier. We are confident and resilient through change; growing and developing ourselves and JM, to ensure we are a leader in our chosen markets.
Owning what we do
We take accountability for our own work, and know we are also part of something bigger. We take the initiative, seek clarity and demand high standards from ourselves and our colleagues.
Protecting people and the planet
We practice the highest standards of health and safety, promote wellbeing for people both inside and outside of work, and seek to safeguard our planet.
Acting with integrity
We do the right thing, for people and for the world. We do what we say we’ll do, expect the same of each other and speak up when there’s a problem. We place importance on relationships internally and externally, treating others with respect and care.
We encourage collaboration inside JM and out, sharing and embracing diverse viewpoints. We tackle problems together, put our ideas into practice and take pride in combining our contributions to create something better for JM and our customers.
