Home » About us » Careers » Research Internship: food regulations

Our Product Stewardship & Regulatory Affairs (PSRA) department is looking for an enthusiastic, energetic, and eager graduate intern who will research the requirements for chemicals under food contact regulations. The PSRA department is responsible for ensuring that our products comply with national, international, and brand specific regulations.

Our products – chemicals that for example give bedding a great scent, provide a protective layer for medical workwear, or make sure your gym clothes are sweat proof – have to comply to a wide range of international and continuously changing regulations. Although our chemical products are not intended to have direct contact with food, the textile items produced with them can. Therefore, we want to increase our knowledge on the food contact materials and the requirements for chemicals under these food contact regulations.

What’s in it for you?

  • Experiencing the environment of an international operating company
  • Building experience in the field of regulatory affairs
  • Financial compensation
  • Possibility to work from home and flexible working hours in consultation with supervisor
  • Travel allowance if required
  • Discounted membership at a gym near the TANATEX office in Ede

What do we expect from you? 

  • You are enrolled at a University (of Applied Sciences) or a recent graduate
  • You are a Bachelor or Master student seeking a degree in Food Safety, Toxicology, Chemistry, Regulatory Affairs or any other related field
  • You are eager to learn and work accurately
  • Good knowledge of English, both written and spoken
  • You are able to work independently as well as in a team
