ONE of Huddersfield's biggest employers - which makes some bigbrand pharmaceutical products - has 40 jobs to fill.
Linthwaite-based Thornton & Ross, which currently employs 670 people, has jobs available now as the business continues to expand.
The firm, behind big brands such as Covonia cough medicine and celebrity-endorsed Zoflora disinfectant, recently bought a number of well-known dermatology brands including Savlon and Oilatum from GLAXOSMITHKLINE (GSK).
Last November the Examiner reported how production of perfume-scented Zoflora had doubled after the endorsement of Instagram cleaning star Mrs Hinch, real name Sophie Hinchcliffe.
The jobs currently on offer range from entry-level positions to more senior 'progressive' roles. They include technical operators, team leaders, process workers and scientific posts.
The vacancies will be showcased at a recruitment fair at the University of Huddersfield later this month, while a recruitment firm, Huddersfield-based Red Diamond Executive Headhunters, has been appointed to help fill the positions.
Thornton & Ross develops, manufactures and supplies a wide range of branded over-the-counter medicines and dermatological, healthcare and hygiene products. It is part of the German-based STADA Group.
Vice-president of UK operations, Mark Kirkup, said the opportunities had been created as a result of the company's continuing growth.
He added: "This is a great time to be joining the business as there are ambitious growth plans in place at Thornton & Ross.
"These are permanent positions at different levels across the company that represent extremely exciting opportunities for the right candidates."
Originally a family business, Thornton & Ross was founded in Huddersfield in 1922.
It quickly grew to be the largest independent pharmaceutical manufacturer in the UK.
