FULL-TIME OR PART-TIME SCIENCE TECHNICIAN (BIOLOGY)
The role will be offered either as a full-time, five days per week position, or as a job share.
We are open to different flexible working patterns as a job share. Please indicate your preferred working pattern in your application.
Hours of work will be 8.00am – 4.00pm, term time only (34 weeks a year including inset days)
We are seeking a pro-active and highly organised Science Technician to support the Biology department. The successful candidate will be responsible for maintaining and setting up practical resources accurately and safely and assisting staff and pupils in practical sessions. Previous experience in a similar role or within a different science career would be preferable. We will also consider candidates with science qualifications looking to support the education of pupils. Whilst a background in science support is preferred, ideally biology, no specific scientific knowledge is required. The ability to work to tight deadlines and good communication skills are essential.
The successful candidate must be prepared to work as part of a team and to demonstrate a helpful attitude towards staff and pupils alike.
Applicants are encouraged to apply as soon as possible as we will process applications in order they are received. We reserve the right to appoint before the closing date.
Further details and an application form are available from the School website or by contacting our HR department
St John’s School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post, including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS). The job holder should be aware of their responsibilities for promoting and safeguarding the welfare of children and young persons who they may come into contact with whilst at St John’s. The post is exempt from the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 and the School is therefore permitted to ask job applicants to declare all convictions and cautions (including those which are "spent" unless they are "protected" under the DBS filtering rules) in order to assess their suitability to work with children.
