Are you an experienced science technician looking for a new role? Or have you got an interest in science and a wish to become trained as a science technician?  If so, we have just the right opportunity for you.


We are looking for a science technician to join our successful and friendly science faculty.  The overall purpose of the role is to complement the educational work of the faculty and to provide an effective and efficient support for the learning and teaching of science.  Ideally you will be educated to at least A level in sciences and ideally you will have industrial or school laboratory experience enabling you to work in accordance with health and safety requirements.  Most importantly you will need an aptitude for science, excellent problem solving and organisational skills with strong IT skills.

This fulfilling role will provide a wealth of developmental opportunities and we will ensure you receive a comprehensive induction programme. The work is fast paced and varied, every week will be different, and we will play to your strengths.  We offer a range of benefits which include the local government pension scheme, cycle to work scheme, free parking, an employee discount scheme, and a commitment to staff wellbeing and recognition initiatives through our wellbeing committee and people strategy.


Castle Phoenix Trust has a great deal to be proud of, with super facilities and a desire to continuously improve. If you have the passion and determination to be a valued part of our team, we would love to hear from you.
