We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic, dedicated and experienced General Science Technician to provide support across the science faculty mainly, though primarily to support the Biology department.
The main purpose of the role is to support with the preparation for practical work in line with the science curriculum, including the setting up of equipment and apparatus in the laboratories and classrooms. Other responsibilities include assisting in ensuring that appropriate stock levels of equipment, apparatus, materials and chemicals are checked periodically and maintained, and assisting in maintaining the cleanliness and tidiness of the department.
The successful applicant will have GCSEs in English, Maths and a Science subject at grade C or above, or equivalent and evidence of additional Science education, such as A Level in a science subject, or progressing towards membership of a technical association or equivalent. Experience in handling laboratory equipment is essential as well as the ability to work well under pressure and prioritise demanding workloads.
The Science Faculty has an outstanding academic record at iGCSE, A-level and Oxbridge entrance. Within the Science Faculty, Biology, Chemistry and Physics operate as three separate disciplines with each department large enough to have a Deputy Head of Department, a technical Team Leader and a General Science Technician. One of the three Team Leaders is also the Senior Science Technician.
