Technician - fABE Fabrication Laboratory

University of Westminster - Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment

The Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment is looking to recruit an experienced technician/s to work in the newly commissioned Fabrication Lab. You will work as part of a team of technicians in a Lab that comprises traditional metal and wood workshops, as well as extensive digital fabrication, and environment and materials testing laboratories.

We are looking particularly for someone who is either a skilled wood or skilled metal worker. You will need extensive experience of machine and hand tools, and an ability to fabricate a wide range of projects in either wood or metal. You will be responsible both for making parts for students and staff, as well as for teaching sometimes inexperienced lab users how to build projects for themselves. Your role will include helping students to develop their work, as well as supporting research and short training courses. There will be opportunities for you to work using traditional machines as well as our new AXYZ and Haas CNC machines if desired.

Candidates must have a “can-do-attitude” to the work as well as good inter-personal skills, both in the context of running training courses for students and others, and in developing design and prototyping projects. This will require flexible hours at key times. We are looking for technicians with a creative approach to innovative and experimental work, and a desire to keep skills updated in this rapidly expanding area. Exceptionally this post could be divided between two applicants.

This is a part-time post (0.4FTE).

Closing date: 07 December 2016.

Interviews are likely to be held on: 16 December 2016.
