Wickham Micro Limited is a UK leading microbiological test house for the pharmaceutical and medical device industries. It’s hard to quantify the impact we have had on the medical world in our 60 years’ history. We are proud of what we do and the high standards we work to. The credit for this goes to our great culture and our amazing employees. 

Our employees – what can we say?  They are motivated, curious, scientific and want to make sure that when a product is on the market it isn’t going to kill you! 

We strive for a culture that is open, curious, willing to learn and welcomes feedback. 

Our leaders celebrate strengths within their teams and support development. How? 

  • Professional development.  Whilst at the start we match people to the role, we continue to then look for the potential that means our employees can keep growing and developing within the company. Management roles are not the only area you can expand into, it could be scientific development or through our Subject Matter Expert programme.  

  • Apprenticeship schemes.  We offer apprenticeship programmes across the Company, some of our integral staff started off here.  

Benefits. 20 days holiday (plus bank holidays) which increases with service, pension scheme, life cover, employee assistance program, medical cash back scheme & a couple of local discounts.  You get an extra day off for your birthday (if it falls on a week day), free secured parking, hot drinks, fresh fruit.  

We also have a large private canteen with a pool table, chess, book club and other employee led events. 

Interested?  If we have any positions available, they will be here.
