Science and Research Laboratory Technician

Laboratory Technician

Location: Newmarket

Salary: £17,000 – £18,000 per annum

Hours: Full-time

We’re excited to be working with a fast-developing scientific company based in Newmarket. It’s looking for an enthusiastic Laboratory Technician to join its lab support team in a full-time role earning a competitive salary.

This role will suit a candidate who may not be qualified as a laboratory assistant, or have worked in a research lab, but who’s keen to work within scientific research. Candidates can expect the role to develop in time.

Responsibilities of this competitively paid Laboratory Technician role in Newmarket include the management of test substances, arranging external maintenance and repairs for small and critical equipment, and temperature mapping. The successful candidate will also be required to provide support to other areas of the lab support and logistics team.

Key responsibilities:

  • Managing, storing and data-inputting incoming substances and test samples.
  • Communicating with internal stakeholders, departments and external suppliers.
  • Hosting engineers while on site and ensuring all necessary documentation is completed.
  • In-house equipment maintenance, kit-building, QC checks, reagent preparation and glass washing.

You’ll also be required to use specialist temperature monitoring and mapping software, and to undertake temperature-mapping report writing. We’d also love you to suggest and implement process improvements. The role will suit a self-starter who’s eager to learn and progress. My client welcome inclusive, approachable individuals who aren’t afraid to ask questions and who are keen to contribute to an excellent team.

Qualifications and experience needed:

  • Experience of working within a laboratory is desirable but by no means essential.
  • Excellent collaboration skills.
  • Initiative and problem-solving skills, with a proactive and flexible attitude.
  • Strong organisational skills and attention to detail.
