We are a Portuguese company, run by British management and we commercialise freeze-dried

Activities to Develop
Your job would be to run some field trials using our bacteria in functioning waste treatment plants
and to commercialese our products throughout the waste treatment industry in Portugal.
You need to be a graduate with a relevant degree, so you will need to have a solid understanding of
waste treatment methods and experience of working in a lab. Of particular interest will be your
knowledge of biological treatment plants.
Much of your work will be unsupervised on site and you will need to be extremely self-motivated with
a good sense of initiative. As well as having strong technical skills, it is also important that you are
comfortable selling to the industry.
You will also have the opportunity to visit our production facilities in the UK to learn more about our
products. Being very comfortable working in English is therefore extremely important.

If you would like to apply for this position, please send your CV (can be in Portuguese) and in less
than 150 words (in English) please state a waste treatment sector in Portugal that you think would
be well suited to using freeze-dried bacteria and explain why.
Pay is 700 euros per month plus expenses
Please submit your application by 25/07/2012 - we are hoping to start in September, but we can
show some flexibility on this. Send your email and covering letter to Charles Cutler –
