Careers

What you make, makes a difference.

“We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.” At Trinseo, we take those words to heart. We certainly understand that work is a part of life. We also believe work should provide the opportunity to make a difference in your life as well as the lives of others. As a company, and as individuals, we have a chance every day to do something that matters, that makes something better, either for a teammate, a customer, our company, or a community. We’re a place where you are given the opportunity to apply your curiosity, imagination and ingenuity in the service of something bigger, something bolder. A place where what you make, makes a difference.

Making a Difference, Together   

Difference-makers are self-starters, hard workers, forward thinkers, and conscientious teammates, who can be counted on, and who can ignite ideas and inspire others. We are introverts, extroverts, blue sky thinkers, analytical doers, and everyone in between. Everyone is welcome and needed. We believe individuality and diversity are the catalysts for creativity and innovation, and we need both. This is extremely important to a company whose tagline is, Connecting Ideas With Solutions. As a global company, our focus is on building an energizing environment that celebrates differences. As far as we’re concerned, the greater the contrast, the greater the potential. Bold ideas, and game-changing innovation only come from a positive tension of opposites, where different perspectives and experiences collide to create something truly unique. If we’re all thinking the same thing, in the same way, then no one is thinking. So, we want you to bring your whole self to work and bring your passion and unconventional ideas to life in a safe culture that values belonging, collaboration, vulnerability, openness, “what if” thinking, and mutual respect.

Shaping Your Future and the World’s  

And because of the kind of work we do, the products we make, and the culture we carefully nurture and protect, when you become part of our family you have the opportunity to shape your future, and the world's. Your impact is felt around the corner and around the globe by producing innovative products that help create a more sustainable and resilient planet, while supporting customers focused on improving the quality of life. What we do serves a purpose larger than ourselves, while also empowering you to find fulfilment and your own purpose in what you chose to do each day. That’s intrinsic to who we are and what we believe. And we’re committed to providing the tools and the environment to help you do just that. It’s your life, and we know you’ve chosen to invest your career in us. In return, we strive to create a vibrant, innovative, learning-driven culture where you can live your life to the fullest and feel good about what you’ve done at the end of the day.

A World of Difference  

Hopefully, it’s obvious we’re passionate about building a company that nurtures and embraces curiosity, collaboration, diversity and belonging. And we’re sensitive to the fact that what we do today, has an impact on tomorrow. So, we want to help you be the best that you can be, so we can help the world be the best that it can be. Let’s make a difference together.

Trinseo has an internal recruiting department and may supplement that internal capability from time to time with assistance from temporary staffing agencies, placement services, and professional recruiters. We have developed the following policy for external search firms and staffing agencies that outlines how to work with us.

Notice to recruiters and staffing agencies:

Trinseo PLC and its affiliates (collectively "Trinseo") have an internal recruiting department. Trinseo may supplement that internal capability from time to time with assistance from temporary staffing agencies, placement services, and professional recruiters (collectively "Agency"). Agencies are specifically directed NOT to contact Trinseo employees directly in an attempt to present candidates. Trinseo’s recruiting team or other authorized Trinseo personnel must present ALL candidates to hiring managers.

To protect the interests of all parties, Trinseo will not accept unsolicited resumes from any source other than directly from a candidate. Any unsolicited resumes sent to Trinseo, including unsolicited resumes sent to a Trinseo mailing address, fax machine or email address, directly to Trinseo employees, or to Trinseo's resume database will be considered Trinseo property. Trinseo will NOT pay a fee for any placement resulting from the receipt of an unsolicited resume. Trinseo will consider any candidate for whom an Agency has submitted an unsolicited resume to have been referred by the Agency free of any charges or fees.

To receive fees, Agencies must obtain advance written approval from Trinseo's recruiting function to submit resumes, and then only in conjunction with a valid fully-executed contract for service and in response to a specific job opening. Trinseo will not pay a fee to any Agency that does not have such an agreement in place.

Agency agreements will only be valid if in writing, approved by Procurement and signed by an officer of Trinseo or his/her designee. No other Trinseo employee is authorized to bind Trinseo to any agreement regarding the placement of candidates by Agencies. Trinseo hereby specifically rejects, and denies any liability under, any agreement purporting to be accepted based on negative consent, negotiation with a candidate, performance, or any means other than the signature of a Trinseo officer or authorized person.

Trinseo is an Equal Opportunity Employer

Trinseo provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, gender identity, marital status, amnesty, or status as a protected veteran in accordance with applicable federal, state and local laws.

Although Trinseo complies with applicable state and local laws governing non-discrimination in employment in every location in which the company has facilities, Trinseo strongly believes that all employees have the right to be treated fairly and will take every step to ensure this.

This policy applies to all terms and conditions of employment including, but not limited to, hiring, placement, promotion, termination, layoff, recall, transfer, leaves of absence, compensation, and training.

Accessibility

If you require reasonable accommodations for any part of the application or hiring process due to disability, you may submit your request by email: Email Us.

This option is reserved for individuals who require accommodations due to a disability. Information received will be routed to a recruiter who will provide assistance to ensure consideration in the application or hiring process.
