We are seeking to appoint a Senior Science Technician, who will deal with a wide variety of work in all three sciences, therefore you must be qualified, experienced, an effective communicator, with strong interpersonal and management skills and a willingness to work as part of a team. 

You will lead the Science Technician in the provision of general practical support in the Science Department and to the Science Staff. You will have a secure understanding of health and safety procedures and in conjunction with the Head of Science will ensure the proper implementation of the safety policy and the preparation and application of risk assessments within the science department.

You will be enthusiastic, flexible, organised and methodical, with excellent attention to detail.
