As a company we manufacture and sell a range of personal care products across an exciting portfolio of household names, including Batiste dry hair shampoo, Arm & Hammer baking soda toothpaste and Femfresh intimate skincare wash.
We have more than 340 skilled employees at Church and Dwight UK. Our business offers people a wide variety of exciting jobs as we develop and manufacture many of our products at our base in Folkestone. To bring a product to market we need all types of skills from idea generation in our marketing team, to product development in R&D, to quality assurance from our Quality & Regulatory colleagues, production and logistics support from our Supply Chain team all the way through to the selling from our Sales Teams. And of course, these colleagues can rely on Finance and Human Resources to support them in their work and on-going career development. There are many more specialised roles which we can’t mention here but, in this exciting business there are lots of opportunities to be had.
Not surprisingly most people are more familiar with our products than they are with our company name. Our Batiste brand has recently become the UK’s #1 Dry Shampoo, dominating the market. Pearl Drops and Arm and Hammer toothpastes are corner stones of the toothpaste category and the market for Sterimar is growing impressively. Nair hair removal cream and Orajel toothache relief gel are also available in stores across the globe. All our products form part of a portfolio of exciting brands and we are growing our portfolio every year, with our newest acquisitions including Anusol, Waterpik and Flawless.
Church and Dwight UK offers a friendly working environment by the coast. You will have a thorough induction that offers the opportunity to learn about every area of the business.

We need leaders and independent thinkers, we encourage entrepreneurship and calculated risk-taking, we look for passion and creativity and promote mutual respect and trust.

I have wholeheartedly enjoyed my work placement at Church and Dwight as it is such an inclusive and supportive environment to work in and has allowed me a raw insight into the world of Finance.

I have met so many lovely people on my year placement who have helped me grow both professionally and personally to whom I am thankful....
