The high-quality training in chemistry offered by the ENSCR is recognised by industry as a gateway to valuable and diverse professions. The 1800 ENSCR graduates currently in employment occupy a variety of posts around the world in practically every major field of industry and services, as is revealed by the periodic surveys we make to place and monitor our engineers
An Employment service operates at the ENSCR not only to maintain relations between graduates and companies, but also to ensure that our training remains suited to the world’s needs.Contact the Employment service, tél. 02 23 23 80 48 ou firstname.lastname@example.org or you can also contact the Industrial Relations Department, tél.02 23 23 80 61 ou 80 03 ou email@example.com
The Employment Survey
Each year, a survey of employment draws up statistics on the job situation of the last two years of graduates. These enquiries are undertaken at the initiative of the CGE, Conférence des Grandes Ecoles and of the Gay Lussac federation of 20 schools of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering. These surveys serve to analyse the professional success of recent graduates from the ENSCR and to support the constant educational debate that goes on within the school’s academic committee. In addition, the ENSCR continuously monitors new graduates each year.
The sectors of employment which graduates of the ENSCR enter are recorded each year.
Testimonies of our graduates
Pauline DARCEL (class of 2019)
Pauline DARCEL (class of 2019) is an engineer in the Beauty division of the Cargill group at the European R&D center in Belgium
“Being interested in the formulation and in the fields of cosmetics, health and the food industry, I joined the ENSCR after two years of CPGE (Preparatory Class for Grandes Ecoles). I then followed the major Chemistry and Technologies for Life in 2nd year, then the Formulation specialty in 3rd year, which comforted me in my desire to work in R & D formulation. Following this training, I completed my final internship at L’Oréal, where I had the opportunity to work in Research & Innovation on the formulation of natural colors in the field of makeup. I learned a lot in practice during this internship, and that convinced me to continue in the natural cosmetics sector. Today, I work as an engineer in the Beauty division of the Cargill group at the European R&D center in Belgium. Cargill Beauty’s objective is to supply cosmetic raw materials with a high naturalness index to many customers in the sector. My mission within the laboratory therefore consists of researching and developing new natural cosmetic ingredients, drawing inspiration in particular from those already developed in the agrifood division of Cargill and by adapting them to a cosmetic application. Being a fairly recent branch of the group, in full development, innovation occupies an important part of our work, which is rather challenging and enriching. “
Hugo FOURNIER (class of 2019)
Chloé PABLOS (class of 2019)
Gwenaël DANIGO (Class of 2017)
Matthieu LOUAPRE (class of 2017)
Jérémy Bonneau (class of 2015)
Jérémy BONNEAU, Majeure EPA, technical studies and projects manager at SPL Eau du Bassin Rennais (class of 2015)
“Attracted relatively early in my course by environmental chemistry, I naturally turned to the EPA sector. This course was able to satisfy my curiosity and my thirst for learning in areas of interest such as water chemistry, treatment processes, analysis methods or statistics. After several internships in drinking water (R&D, BE) and a civic service in environment, I now use my skills at the service of the Local Public Water Company of the Bassin Rennais, company of production and distribution of drinking water. As a researcher, I work on a wide variety of projects such as monitoring the redesign of a UTEP, creating a pumping station, strengthening instrumentation, … An important part of my work also consists in monitoring the quality of water produced and in leading research and development projects on the 7 production sites of the SPL (iron removal,. emerging pollutants, pesticides, process performance, equipment mechanization,… In my opinion, the key skill for this position is a significant capacity for adaptation combined with a strong curiosity to quickly become relevant and versatile on the many themes proposed (chemistry, hydraulics, civil engineering, electrical, administrative, political, etc.). ). On the other hand, the interface with many interlocutors, such as plant or network operators, the community or even universities contributes to the richness of this position. Enough to continue to flourish after the ENSCR. “
Paola Martin (class of 2016)
Paola Martin, Majeure CTV, R&D engineer at Roullier (class of 2016)
“After a scientific baccalaureate, I joined the preparatory cycle of the ENSCR in 2011. At the end of these two years, I joined the engineering cycle of the School. In the 2nd year of the engineering cycle, I chose the Major in Chemistry and Technologies for Life, advanced organic chemistry specialty. Then, I specialized in analysis and formulation, biological molecules and physico-chemistry during the 3rd year. I did my final internship at the Roullier Group’s Global Innovation Center in Saint-Malo. During these six months, I worked on the design and characterization of new products for Plant Nutrition. Just graduated, I was hired within the Roullier Group as a Research and Development Engineer. My job is to develop new active ingredients for plant production. I work on the extraction and purification of active ingredients, the formulation of new fertilizers and their physico-chemical characterization. If I can give advice to ENSCR students, it is to choose carefully their end-of-study internship, because this experience can prove to be a real springboard to employment. “
Philippe Sauvignet, Veolia, Industrialization Manager within the Technical and Performance Department of Veolia Environnement SA. He is also an expert in drinking water.
“I am in charge of the industrialization of a new drinking water and wastewater treatment process for the Veolia group. In this context, I conduct process tests on the factory with pilot installations and other prototypes. Since 2007, I have been recruiting ENSCR engineering students. These students are for the most part well trained, competent and above all motivated by our professions. Obviously the training given at the ENSCR is a quality training which combines the necessary theory as well as practical application. This suits us very well because we are of course looking for well-made faces but also and above all young people full of dynamism. I found within the teaching team supports and relays of our needs as well as the requirements of our trades in terms of recruitment. Almost half of the BAC + 5 students that we welcome in this framework integrate the Veolia group. I am in contact with many of them long after their studies have ended and their visit to our test centers. It is therefore a big thumbs up that we can send to teaching within the ENSCR. “
Régis Guérin, Production BU Nutrition Manager at Eurofins Analytics.
“For more than 10 years, the Eurofins Analytics laboratory in Nantes has collaborated with the ENSCR and welcomes student-engineers, generally 1st year students, as part of their work placement. The objective and the purpose of this internship are focused on the discovery of the job of analytical production manager / technician in a private laboratory with an industrial approach to the organization in order to perform numerous analyzes in a minimum of time, but also be able to organize his work in order to carry out his daily planning and rigorously follow the analytical protocols in a spirit of accuracy. The student, by integrating the analytical units, is therefore brought to apply his theoretical and practical knowledge taught at the ENSCR but also to develop his personal skills, interpersonal skills, which is generally a rewarding experience for these young future graduates. In addition to these different missions, the trainee is supported in a research project or method reliability which will be integrated into his written report, which he will then present to a jury of teachers. The training provided by the ENSCR is recognized and appreciated by Eurofins Analytics, we have already hired student engineers for R&D project manager positions in our different Business Units, which clearly shows our confidence in their skills. “
