Name Heather Goode
Current Job Title Technical Team Leader
Organisation Dulux NZ
Academic Background B.Sc. Chem
Why did you decide to get into science? I enjoyed the practical laboratory work and the variety.
What do you like most about your job? The variety, the ability to continually learn and never reach the end of your understanding of your field, seeing raw materials coming in one door and going out the door as something else, the employment we give to the local community, making a product that protects and enhances living spaces.
What is the highlight of your career so far? introducing a waste paint and packaging scheme to Dulux NZ.
What do you do? I manage the Quality Control laboratory, the Technical Services Laboratory and the Colour Services Laboratory for Dulux Paints NZ. We provide new products, formulation maintenance, technical advice, environmental and stewardship advice, new colour ranges, and handle customer issues.
