We are seeking an enthusiastic and adaptable individual to provide technical assistance and general support within our Natural Sciences department.

This is an attractive opportunity for a suitably skilled technician to work in our Natural Sciences department. This is a varied role with good opportunity for professional development. Alongside a range of technical duties there will be opportunities to work alongside students in support of their study assignments.

The technical support will be primarily for the Natural Sciences Department, which offers:

• Chemistry A level
• Biology A level
• Biology GCSE
• BTEC Science

However, work may be required from time to time in other departments (e.g. Geology)

The Natural Sciences department has 4 teaching staff and 2 technicians.

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 successful candidate will be appointed to Scale B of the College’s support staff pay spine, within the full-time range £16,500 to £17,350 p.a, dependent on experience. (Actual salary will be pro-rata to the weeks/hours worked. i.e. £11,423 to £12,012 p.a for 30 hrs per week term-time only).

The contract will be on a permanent basis starting as soon as the successful candidate is available.

The role is part-time (average of 30 hours per week) and term-time (39 weeks per year) with the normal working pattern to be confirmed.

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.
