We have an exciting opportunity for a talented and motivated individual to join the technical services team supporting the School of Life Sciences and Warwick Medical School at the University of Warwick. Reporting to the Head of Technical Services the postholder will be part of a small team of technical support managers providing line management and task coordination to a cohort of senior support technicians and technical support assistants. The postholder will have significant experience of managing and coordinating the delivery of a technical service to active research laboratories, in addition to the supervision and/or management of junior staff. The postholder will be expected to work closely with the Health and Safety team and have experience of working with a Health and Safety system, ideally possessing an appropriate qualification such as NEBOSH general certificate.

The post holder will act as the senior technical lead for our high hazard containment level 2 and 3 facilities, managing induction, training and access to these. You will also be expected to develop and maintain standard operating procedures for the facilities. Such facilities are liable to inspection by governing bodies and the post-holder will be expected to maintain them to a very high standard.

Success in this role will require in-depth technical knowledge of an HE environment, demonstrate attention to detail and contribute to the development of resilience within the team to ensure that Technical Services across both schools deliver a first-class service.

The postholder will be required to actively attend, engage in, and contribute to, appropriate meetings and groups across both Schools on matters relating technical services including allocation and relocation of resources and refurbishment projects to deliver the needs of individual groups within the laboratory estate.

The SLS/WMS Technical Support Team provides a shared service for a diverse community across two separate academic departments and supports a wide range of lab disciplines at four separate sites, Gibbet Hill, University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire Walsgrave, the Wellesbourne Campus and The Main Campus. This role offers an exciting opportunity as both Schools are also embarking on ambitious growth strategies including the recent opening of a brand-new shared research building, the Interdisciplinary Biomedical Research Building (IBRB) which can house around 200 laboratory researchers in a state-of-the-art research environment.
