HR Manager (Part-Time c.50%)

Job title:                       HR Manager
Responsible to:           CEO

The Company
C-Capture designs world-leading chemical processes for the capture of carbon dioxide.

C-Capture has patented a unique, solvent-based technology which offers a safe, low-cost way to remove carbon dioxide from emissions using a post-combustion capture approach. Our technology can help deliver the carbon emission reductions which are essential if we are to avoid the worst impacts of the currently unfolding climate crisis.

C-Capture was founded in 2009 as a spin-out from the Department of Chemistry at the University of Leeds, and recent investors include IP Group, Drax, and BP Ventures. Since the summer of 2018, we have expanded the team from 5 to 21, including a crop of extremely talented recent chemistry and engineering graduates who have quickly established themselves as key members of the technical team. The business systems support team is also expanding as we transition from a mostly R&D based organisation to one on a firmly commercial footing, as we work to deploy our unique technology across a broad range of industrial sectors.

This job position is part of the company growth and is focused on guiding the company culture.
