Yara is recruiting 25 engineering talents to boost its global technical expertise.

This is part of an ongoing program to consolidate Yara's position as a global expert and support its growth ambitions.

Yara is searching for 25 new engineers to strengthen its Technology and Production Support unit (TPS). The aim is to support Yara's growth ambitions by further strengthening its capacity for technological innovation and improved global production. In keeping with its strategic goal to create a more dynamic company capable of being a key driver in the development of the fertilizer industry, Yara requires a new generation of chemical, mechanical and electrical/instrumental engineers capable of becoming global technical support experts.

Jan Duerloo, head of Yara's TPS uniti, said: \\$quot;Despite having a hundred years of technological innovation and operational excellence to draw upon, Yara is now renewing its focus on engineering.

“It is natural for us as a company to resume focus on our traditional technical strength as we move into a new period of growth. It is necessary to align our technology base with our business model.”

Duerloo is spearheading Yara's efforts to benchmark both its production processes, and environmental and safety performance - and to use this to establish industry-wide standards. The new engineers, along with some 60 to 70 technical experts from the existing organisation, will play a key role in achieving this.
