The Castle School offers a rewarding and positive environment in which to work and I hope that these details encourage you to submit an application.
We are looking to appoint a Science Technician to help cover long term sickness within our Science Department. Both full and part time applications are invited. The salary scale is Grade 14 on the Somerset Support Staff Pay Scale (£9.01 - £9.68 per hour) with applicants working term time only. This represents an actual starting salary of £14,384 per annum for a full time Technician working 37 hours per week.
Science Technicians have a valuable role to play in enabling the child in the classroom to succeed through providing a complete laboratory technical resource to the school. Applicants should be enthusiastic, patient and flexible, demonstrate initiative, have excellent communication and organisation skills and be a team player. Previous experience in a similar role or an interest in science is desirable.
The most important thing for our children is their safety. We foster a culture of vigilance amongst staff, students and parents. We always listen to children and take their concerns seriously. The Castle Partnership Trust is committed to safeguarding and all staff have a duty of care towards our young people. All complaints and concerns are fully investigated. Please note that for posts working with children the successful candidate will be required to undergo Disclosure and Barring Service checks in line with the Local Authority and School Child Safeguarding Policy.
