You will have experience in the completion of COSHH Risk Assessments and Health and Safety management in a subject relevant to STEM. Experience as a Trainer would also be desirable.

Ideally, you will have previous customer service experience along with strong IT skills. Excellent verbal and written communication skills are essential. In addition, you will have a good understanding of customer care and the ability to put this into practice.
