We are seeking an enthusiastic and adaptable individual to provide technical assistance and general support within our Natural Sciences department.
As a relief technician you will be employed on a sessional basis to provide cover for staff absence or to provide additional support during peak periods of work. Initially there is a 4 week period of staff cover required for the beginning of the Autumn term (September 2017).
The technical support will be primarily for the Natural Sciences Department, which offers:
- Chemistry A level
- Biology A level
- Biology GCSE
- BTEC Science
The Natural Sciences department has 5 teaching staff and 2 technicians.
Technical support work may be available from time to time in other departments (e.g. Geology). In addition, you may wish to be considered for other relief or casual work, such as cover supervision (i.e. supervising classes in the absence of teaching staff), learning support or exam invigilation. Further details of these can be discussed at interview.
You must have relevant laboratory experience either through your studies or in a work environment. A good understanding of safe working practices in a laboratory environment is also essential.
You will work closely with the teachers and other technicians in the area and will help support students in their studies, so you will need good communication and interpersonal skills. A pro-active and flexible approach is essential along with the ability to organise your workload to best meet the needs of the service.
Closing Date: 10am, Monday 14 August 2017.
