Acheson & Acheson
Daily, my work load changes. When I first started at A&A I looked after the raw materials which involves reviewing documents annually, checking the latest information with suppliers and updating information to our database. As time progressed I also began working on the Product Information Files for our customers and other customer documentation. I have also been involved with the REACH regulation and have developed a database to monitor our raw materials. No two days are the same which always keeps me on my toes!
It’s hard to pick just one favourite part! I think because I started off looking after raw materials and have since moved onto helping with the Product Information Files. Masses of technical information needs to be gathered during the development of a cosmetic product and it’s my job to coordinate all this work. I really get to see the start to finish process of a product from the technical information side. It’s always great to complete a PIF for a customer and have all the boxes ticked.
Sometimes, deadlines can be quite tight for customer documentation and there may be a rush to get huge amounts of paperwork complete quickly. This is something that doesn’t happen often and if it does I always try my best to complete the documentation in time.
Although I’m not a chemist I work closely with the chemists in our company. I have to understand what the raw material are and what function they perform in the products.
I’m at home decorating! My boyfriend and I bought our first house together this summer and it’s a project that needs a lot of work: most weekends are spent painting or at B&Q!
If I wasn’t at A&A I have no idea what I would be doing! I’ve always fancied travelling so maybe I would do that.
