Exceptional talent, innovation and advanced technology are key components to our global success

Why Work for us?

Did you know that many of your familiar everyday items are likely to have a key element made with a MacDermid Autotype product? Items such as your car radio panel and controls, your printed t-shirt to touch screens and your mobile phone lenses. We are a global company creating technical solutions that are needed around the world.

Our Head Office in Wantage is on a site surrounded by trees, flanked by a small nature reserve with local wildlife as part of the working environment. With ample free parking on site and just a short walk into the town centre.


Equal Opportunities:

MacDermid Autotype is opposed to any form of discrimination being practised against staff members, prospective staff members or previous staff members, customers or suppliers on the grounds of their age, sex, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, or marital status, colour, race, nationality, ethnicity, religion or belief, pregnancy, maternity, any disability or because someone is in a civil partnership. Entry to the Company, progression within it, and opportunities for further development are based upon objective criteria and personal merit, and positive action will be taken to remove any barriers to equal opportunities that exist.


Permanent staff benefit from a range of benefits including a pension scheme, free life assurance, a minimum of 24 days’ holiday a year and free private health cover. We also have a subsidised staff restaurant and plenty of free parking.

Our staff restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and early supper. The catering staff uses local produce as much as possible, offering a wide ranging seasonal choice including many vegetarian dishes.

Staff Representation:

The company recognises that all staff at all levels have a valuable part to play in the success of the company. With this in mind an elected staff council was set up in 1991 as a communication and consultation body. Council acts as a forum for discussing issues such as pay, conditions, welfare, pension options and company objectives and performance.

Occupational Health:

The Occupational Health department provides help with lifestyle issues on an individual and confidential basis. This might include help with giving up smoking, dealing with stress or losing weight.

Social Committee:

The active social committee organises regular events, such as Christmas shopping trips or seaside and family fun days.
