DelAgua improves lives through the design, implementation and management of clean, smart, sustainable technology.
Robert Half are proud to be partnering with DelAgua Water Testing Ltd, a distributor of water testing kits globally based at their scenic office near Marlborough, to recruit an enthusiastic and resourceful Software Developer / Systems Administrator to join their team on a full time, permanent basis.
In 1985 the University of Surrey, in collaboration with Oxfam, developed the Oxfam DelAgua Portable Water Quality Monitoring Test Kit. This kit enabled field workers to test water quality in remote areas where there is no access to a laboratory. Since its development in 1985, the water testing kit has developed and is now used by major international NGOs and other aid agencies in over 150 countries worldwide. In 2006, DelAgua was spun out of the university and into a limited company.
DelAgua also offers a distribution service for other manufacturers' products that are complementary to their water testing kits. They are able to supply NGOs, governments and companies in the region of 60,000 products suitable for all laboratory and life science requirements.
