Key Regulatory Role


The Cosmetic, Toiletry and Perfumery Association (CTPA) is the voice of the cosmetics and personal care industry in the UK, promoting good working practice and representing the interest of its members through active dialogue with government, European and international regulators, interested stakeholders and media.  Membership comprises manufacturers and distributors, ingredient suppliers, retailers and service providers, from SMEs to multi-nationals.

CTPA is currently recruiting for a Key Regulatory Role within its Regulatory and International Department to support and progress the Association’s regulatory services to member companies.

The successful candidate must possess a good honours degree in a scientific field with a strong interest in regulatory affairs.  The ability to review and critique legal text is essential.  Previous experience of the cosmetics industry and knowledge of the regulatory framework is desirable; interest and background in chemistry and chemical laws would be an advantage.  Excellent administrative and communication skills are required, as is a good level of computer literacy including the ability to use document design software.

The position involves helping to gather and collate information on the regulation of cosmetic and personal care products from their production to their placing on the market; responding to a wide range of regulatory, technical enquiries from members; and representing the industry to regulatory authorities, with some travel as required.  The ability to act independently and on own initiative to carry projects through to a successful conclusion will be instrumental in a successful progression to an exciting career with this leading trade association.

The CTPA is offering an attractive salary according to experience, with private healthcare and a personal pension scheme. The offices are centrally located on Piccadilly, London, W1.
