In return, we offer a supportive and inclusive working environment, where everyone’s skills and ideas are valued and respected.

Assisting the Senior Technician, you will support staff and students in the Laboratories and assist in the preparation of chemicals for demonstrations and practical activities. 

You will also ensure the maintenance of a healthy & safe working environment through actively contributing to the assessment, monitoring and review of both health & safety procedures and information resources.
