Main duties and responsibilities

We are seeking to recruit a motivated and resourceful individual to play an important support role in our Optometry Department.

You will work within a small team of professional colleagues, both technical and academic, and will make a significant contribution to supporting practical teaching sessions within the Department.  You will be providing technical support for Optometry teaching and clinics, ensuring the laboratories and clinics are fully prepared, with the necessary equipment available & fully operational.  You will have an important role to play in maintaining the operation of equipment as well as ensuring compliance with Health & Safety legislation.

Motivated and a professional attitude are likewise essential as you will work not only with your immediate colleagues, but also with Departmental academic staff and with students.

Practical experience in Optometry or in a related discipline, is required and it would be advantageous to have gained this experience within a higher-education framework.  You will also have a good level of familiarity with instrumentation for optical measurement.

We recognise that the field is not ‘level’ and want to actively address barriers to progression. Markers of success to date include no gender pay gap within the School where this post sits and holding an Athena Swan Bronze Award. We also challenge stereotypes and partner with networks both within and outside of the University to enhance inclusion in the workplace. We wholeheartedly encourage applications from BAME and LGTBQ candidates, who are currently under-represented within the School.  #GoHerts
