We are seeking an enthusiastic and adaptable individual to provide technical assistance and general support within our Natural Sciences department.
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 4 teaching staff and 2 technicians.
Technical support work may be required from time to time in other departments (e.g. Geology).
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.
The contract will be on a permanent basis starting as soon as the successful candidate is available. The role is full-time (average of 37 hours per week) and term-time (39 weeks per year) with the normal working pattern expected to be:
8.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. with ½ hour lunch Mondays to Thursdays and a 4.00 pm finish on Fridays.
Alternative patterns of work may be considered, provided the needs of the role are met. Flexibility in working times may, in any case, be required on occasions.
