Lab Technician – Temporary (12 month contract)
Up to £10 per hour
The successful candidate will be responsible for spraying automotive panels as well as testing abrasives with robotic spray guns and robotic arms. They will also be responsible for cutting samples using plated metal cutting templates. Due to the paints being used, the successful candidate will be needing to wear a ventilation mask for approximately 6-7 hours per day, and will therefore be requested to pass a medical on site once they have been offered.
The client may be willing to look at someone that has an A-C grade in Maths, English and a Scientific subject and is willing to learn and has a drive to succeed. The successful candidate needs to be logical and able to assemble and replace items (for example, they would need to remove, clean, and then put back together the spray gun). The role is quite repetitive, so they are not looking for someone that has extensive experience, however if they have experience within an R&D lab it would be a bonus, as will if they have an interest outside of work such as working on cars in their spare time. They will train up the right person for the role.
Candidates must have IT experience, especially Excel and need to be competent with file storage so that testing reports are not lost.
The work that they will be conducting will be more of a manufacturing skill set, however they will also be working within a lab, so will have general lab duties, such as ensuring a clean environment.
36.5hours per week.
Shift core hours: 8am-4pm Mon-Thurs, 8am-3pm Friday. Opportunity for OT is available, and flexibility desired as they may be required to come in a bit earlier or stay a bit later on some days dependant on the tests being carried out (should only be 2 hours either way, eg 6.30am start, or 6pm finish).
