We are seeking a flexible and highly motivated Science Technician to oversee the delivery of high quality practical lessons at Poltair School. The successful candidate’s duties will include preparation and maintenance of equipment, stock control, ordering procedures and assisting students and staff in the classroom.

With a strong interest in science, you will have a methodical and organised approach and maintain high standards in your work. Knowledge of current health and safety legislation and the possession of relevant qualifications would be an advantage, as would experience of working with young people in an educational setting. However, specific training will be provided for the successful candidate.

We pride ourselves on our strong values, supporting and encouraging students to embrace their learning and reach increasingly higher standards of achievement through precisely planned and well-resourced teaching in addition to a strong pastoral ethos. 

This is an exciting time to join our large and dynamic Trust, which is responsible for educating learners across four secondary schools, one junior school and eight primary schools, with a Free School (primary) to open in September 2021.
