Looking for an exciting new challenge? We seek an excellent Senior Science Technician (starting September 2017). This position has arisen due to the expansion of the Academy. This is a key role for the Academy, and we are looking for someone who is passionate about Science in schools, who really wants to make a difference to student lives.
You will have a positive ‘can-do’ attitude, along with a good understanding of the Science GCSE and A Level specifications that our students are studying. You will be required to have experience as a technician in a laboratory environment, preferably in an education context. This role will particularly suit a dynamic individual who is passionate about practical science learning and wants to take a key role in further developing our existing provision for our students.
Our Academy is a vibrant and exciting place to work and was graded as outstanding in all areas by Ofsted in June 2015. In 2016, Magna achieved a Progress 8 score of 0.52, placing us well within the top 5% of highest performing schools nationally. We have a desire to be in the top 1%.
You must fully believe in our philosophy that that every child can achieve academically at the highest level, no matter what their starting point, and have the determination to make this happen. We believe that the best form of pastoral care that we can provide is to ensure that students leave us with the best set of qualifications possible.
The post holder must be able to use their initiative whilst also working as a member of a team.
Excellent interpersonal and organisational skills, resilience and a professional manner are essential.
