We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, organised, and reliable individual with excellent communication and interpersonal skills to work as a science technician at Hethersett Academy. If you are enthusiastic about science and enjoy inspiring others, this is a wonderful opportunity to use your training/experience and develop your skills within a friendly team.

The role involves working with a wide range of equipment, materials and resources so a good knowledge of health and safety and CLEAPSS is desirable.
