Holiferm is a biotechnology company that invests in developing sustainable and eco-friendly methods for manufacturing chemicals. We are based in the North West of England with a research and development laboratory in Manchester and a commercial plant on the Wirral, Liverpool. Our first process to be developed through each stage is our patented fermentation with gravity separation technology, which we use to produce our biosurfactants and sophorolipids. Our commercial plant produces these at kilotonne scale for our global customers from local, independent companies to multinationals. We are actively working on other processes for the manufacture of other molecules to diversify our portfolio. This will move us closer to our mission of removing the need to use petrochemicals in the production process.
The successful candidate will have the opportunity to work on highly specialised downstream processing technologies, applying their knowledge and gaining experience in sophisticated biological manufacturing methods.
