The Elizabethan Academy are seeking to recruit an additional Science Laboratory Technician to support our existing team of Science Teachers and Technicians who have a keen drive to maintain and promote practical science at the heart of teaching and learning across all key stages and science disciplines.

We require a confident person who can relate well to staff and students and who is committed to supporting our whole school values. This post could suit a former science teacher or conversely a school leaver / graduate, or candidates more experienced in equipment repairs, electronics etc.

Whilst relevant practical science experience would be beneficial we can offer training through a Laboratory Technician Apprenticeship in conjunction with a recognised external apprenticeship training provider where appropriate.

The Elizabethan Academy is a successful 11-19 converter academy. Students and staff benefit from excellent facilities. You would support all ranges and also have the opportunity of working in wider school projects. We are passionate about sustainability and are pro-actively working towards becoming a carbon neutral school. We also have an on-site environmental garden where we have spotted snakes, badgers, and foxes to name but a few.

Please see the job description for more details.

The successful candidate will have:

  • Excellent literacy and numeracy skills.
  • Knowledge of practical science through formal qualifications or work experience.
  • Motivation and flexibility.
  • Effective organisation and communication skills.
  • Will have good communication skills with the ability to work on your own initiative, but also be able to work flexibly as part of a team.
  • The ability to act as a positive role model and set high standards.
  • Be confident in their ability to support all students including those with SEN and who are vulnerable.

We are able to offer staff a supportive environment with continuous professional development and excellent facilities. If you have the vision and drive for excellence and want to join an independent academy where relationships for learning are fundamental to our continued success we would be delighted to hear from you.

The Academy is committed to equality of experience for all staff and students.  We operate safer recruitment, robust child protection procedures and require evidence of DBS clearance for all employees. Checks will also be made with previous employers.
