    Job role

    Hello everyone, I’ve been a science technician for 4 years now and I’m in the process of reviewing my Job description, which entails listing all tasks I do within my role... Can you help with an extensive list of things as techs we do.

    Glowing water still

    Ours is very efficient, will pop if too hot or not enough water. We Decale often and only had to change the element once in 5 years

    New Techy induction

    What we ended up doing, is sending them on a weeks course ran by STEM, highly recommend and to go for the aspire grant so the school actually gain money from doing it (Whats better motivation than that) The job we do as techs is so broad and different from workplace to work place guess its hard...

    New Techy induction

    Hello all, We have a new technician starting in a few weeks. Just wondering what people do when you get new members of staff joining the team, what preproom induction do you give? (HR will give formal School induction) We don't want to throw them into the deep end and scare them off :D...
