Royal Society of Chemistry is an international organisation connecting chemical scientists with each other, with other scientists, and with society as a whole. Founded over 175 years ago, the Society have an international membership of over 50,000. They use the surplus from their global publishing and knowledge business to give thousands of chemical scientists the support and resources required to make vital advances in chemical knowledge. They develop, recognise and celebrate professional capabilities, and bring people together to spark new ideas and new partnerships. They support teachers to inspire future generations of scientists, and speak up to influence the people making decisions that affect us all. The Royal Society of Chemistry are a catalyst for the chemistry that enriches our world. Their mission is to advance excellence in the chemical sciences and this has been the case for over 175 year's when 77 scientists, including doctors, academics, manufacturers and entrepreneurs, formed the Chemical Society of London, with dialysis inventor Thomas Graham as their first President. Seven years later Queen Victoria granted a Royal Charter to the Society, confirming its purpose of "the general advancement of Chemical Science". It's important for many of their colleagues to be working for a not-for-profit organisation and to be part of an organisation that supports a global scientific community. This provides the opportunity to get involved in a variety of activities making it a fascinating, exciting and great place to be. The environment in which they work together is professional; the word most commonly used to describe the organisation is 'friendly'. As an employer they offer career development and progression. Alongside an attractive and competitive benefits package they offer an organisation rooted in centuries of tradition and expertise and yet completely forward-looking and engaged with the world.
