BCF launches new video to entice young talent into coatings industry

Added: 26 May 2015

The short video, 'A Future in Colour', has a strong message - that there are real career opportunities in the Coatings Industry for chemistry graduates. The video sheds light on those career opportunities and provides an overview of the impact of the Coatings Industry on the UK economy.

BCF chief executive Tom Bowtell said of the video: "This is a great time for chemistry graduates to consider a career in our industry. We are noticing a shortage of paint and ink chemists in our field and are eager to recruit a new generation of talent. This video highlights the variety of exciting career opportunities that exist but may be overlooked in favour of more obvious career choices for chemistry graduates, which are often over-subscribed."

The launch of the video follows news of the BCF's offer of scholarship opportunities for chemistry graduates interested in pursuing a career in the coatings industry.
