About Chemistry

Chemistry’s intent is to create opportunities for everyone to be brilliant at work. We do this by working with ambitious global business leaders to answer and solve for, possibly, their most important question:

“Do I have the talent I need to achieve my commercial objectives?”

As a Talent Strategy Consultancy, we use our pioneering What Great Looks Like (WGLL™) methodology to create unique insights and positive business impacts for our clients.

Everything we do is focused on understanding who can perform in any given context. By analysing comprehensive behavioural, attitudinal and psychometric data we are able to outline core capabilities required for business impact, key performance indicators for specific roles and to work with clients to remove institutional factors obstructing performance.

Working with Chemistry

Working as part of the People Operations team at Chemistry will give you the opportunity to quickly take on important responsibilities and play a key role in growing and supporting the Chemistry talent as the company scales.

Your Chemistry journey will be defined by our cultural values:

  • People First: we are consistently humble, and always strive to understand the needs of others, offering our time and effort without expectation. We care about supporting and empowering others to bring their true and whole selves to work.
  • Working in Flow: your goals are your team's goals and your success is fully dependent on your team's success. We work as a team to achieve our goals, and we share feedback with each other that enables us to constantly improve.
  • Love the Problem: we are curious and embrace problems in all their complexity through the lens of context. We suspend the belief that we already know the answer and instead explore the problem with the aim of finding the best solution.
  • Science and Storytelling: we recognise that creating opportunities for others to be brilliant relies on us being perennial students of science. We maintain the integrity of our insights and science while illuminating the science with powerful narratives, always seeking to educate and shift beliefs.
