If you have a scientific background, good attitude, common sense and a desire to learn and progress, this may be just the opportunity for you.

I am working in partnership with a food testing laboratory who are expanding their team within the Microbiology lab and looking for an Operations Technician.

As an Operations Technician you will be working in a vibrant, dynamic team. You will be preparing reagents, media and solutions for testing in accordance with the appropriate Company guidelines. You will assist members of the technical team in performing microbiological and/or nutritional testing to the highest possible standard in order to ensure results are accurate. You will work with the quality team to ensure that ISO17025 are being adhered to.

Your responsibilities will be preparing samples for testing, preparing and pouring agar, pipetting and plating as well as general maintenance/cleaning duties within the lab.

You will work within a high through-put laboratory, which means you will need the ability to multitask and maintain a high quality performance. As an Operations Technician you will be able to utilise your methodical approach as well as demonstrate high level of accuracy.

You will be working Monday to Friday 16:00 - 00:00 with opportunities for overtime.

Scientific background is advantageous yet not essential.

Due to the shift hours, own means of transport is required.

This role starts on a temporary basis with the possibility of going permanent, and could be a fantastic opportunity for recent graduates, who would like to gain valuable experience in a laboratory environment.

Search is an equal opportunities recruiter and we welcome applications from all suitably skilled or qualified applicants, regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/beliefs, sexual orientation or age.
