Are you technically minded, have good attention to detail, and interested in something different?
If so, we would love to hear from you!
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a confident and enthusiastic technician to join our team providing technical laboratory support, which is fundamental to ensuring we can deliver an efficient service to our Business Partners.
Working as part of a central team of health and safety professionals, you will provide proactive health and safety support to faculties and professional services where technical health and safety knowledge, skills or expertise is required.
You will also specialise in health and safety aspects of ionising and non-ionising radiations. For ionising radiations, you will have particular focus on managing specific aspects of radiation safety, radiation laboratories and authorised users of radioactive materials and radiation generators. For non-ionising radiation, you will support with the provision of technical services to assist users with understanding the necessary safety precautions.
Working in a hybrid way, primarily on campus with a small amount of home-working, you will undertake a diverse range of duties supporting business partners with advice and guidance on implementing technical and laboratory health and safety requirements, monitoring and measuring hazards, assisting with health and safety inspections and audits and assisting with health and safety training and delivering inductions and toolbox talks.
You will work collaboratively with the team, staff and students to foster and strengthen health and safety culture at the University and promote positive corresponding behaviours.
You will need a degree or equivalent qualification in a scientific discipline with practical experience of working in a laboratory where biological and chemical substances are handled.
Previous knowledge and experience of implementing health and safety measures and working with radiations would be advantageous but is not essential, as training will be provided. You will have a flexible approach to work with a focus on service delivery.
Working hours are 36.25 per week. Benefits include generous holiday entitlement with additional privilege days, staff development opportunities, working in a beautiful campus environment and an excellent pension scheme.
