The School of Physics, Engineering & Computer Science is seeking to appoint a Senior Technical Officer. The School offers degrees in Physics, Robotics & AI, Computer Science, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Automotive Engineering and Electrical and Electronic Engineering. We’ve recently re-developed these to bring about a new, stimulating, practical led approach to engineering education.
Main duties & responsibilities

On a day-to-day basis you will be involved in demonstrating the safe use of practical engineering tools, across a range of technical equipment alongside an opportunity to showcase some of your more specialist skills.
Skills and experience needed
You will need proven professional experience of working in a general laboratory/workshop environment, ideally with students in the FE or HE sector. You will understand mechanical principles and will be able to demonstrate the use of equipment to assist students.
We would expect you to have specialist knowledge in one or more of the following areas: manufacturing equipment (milling, lathe work etc.), hand tools and CNC, rapid prototyping and additive manufacture (3D printing), laser cutting, prototyping (system design), electronics, or embedded systems (Arduino, raspberry pi etc.).
You will hold a minimum of A-levels or equivalent level qualifications or have proven experience. A recognised qualification in an appropriate subject at degree or HNC/HND level or equivalent is desirable.
