Expansion of the team over the few years has now resulted in a Cheshire-based company looking to hire a Lab Technician/Manager to support the team of chemists conducting synthetic and analytical work. If you have a background in laboratory work and are looking for a part-time position then I would be keen to speak with you further about this Lab Technician/Manager position. The company will want to start interviews immediately, and this Lab Technician/Manager position could be a good way to return to a lab-based role following some time away from science.
Your day to day duties as a Lab Technician/Manager will be:
- Managing stock levels and supplier relationships
- Keeping the lab running with regards to consumables and equipment
- Arranging dispatch of samples to clients
- Potential to conduct some synthetic or analytical work of your own dependent on your scientific background
You will be an ideal candidate with this background:
- A science degree
- Interest in doing a part-time (2.5 days per week) job
- A track record in laboratory work
- Willingness to go the extra mile to impress clients
- A good team-working approach
- A driving licence and car
This client is already conducting initial interviews for the role so I would like you to apply immediately with a CV (Word document format, 2 pages maximum) so as to not miss out on the opportunity.
Note my client is unable to sponsor visas for those without eligibility to work in the UK. When choosing your scientific recruitment specialist, why should it be Dr Paul Mears, Head of Chemical recruitment, at Science Solutions?
The team I manage here focus solely on matching scientists to positions in the UK speciality chemical industry, and related areas such as drug discovery and agrochemicals, which is where my own experience and network position me best for clients and job seekers alike. Supplemented by a background working in the speciality chemicals and fragrance and flavours sectors, I completed academic studies with a PhD in organic chemistry at the University of Manchester, which came after graduating with a BSc at the University of Leeds' famous Colour & Polymer Chemistry department. Following a short post-doctoral research post I built up nearly seven years' experience in recruiting scientists into new jobs.
