Fawley needs a supply of good chemical engineers

Ron Mortimer is a chemical engineer at Fawley oil refinery.

He helps make new lubricants. He's working on replacing parts inside one of the towers. He studied Chemical Engineering at University.

Part of the time he's in the office, but he also goes outside. He talks to staff on the site and across the world. It's important that he can explain things well.

He has a touch-screen computer which he uses a lot. It shows all the valves in the plant. He can tap his screen and open a valve on the other side of Fawley.

The computer gives information about the chemicals in the oil sample.
