Hi everyone, have been watching this site and CLEAPSS, I have been shocked at the number of science technician vacancies that are out there. I would be interested to know what the uptake is in terms of suitable applicants, eg relevant qualifications or science knowledge. We all know that school budgets are tight however the posts don't seem to be attracting many people. Is it because many are part time pro rata on a low wage to start or there aren't the folk out there that want to do the type of work. We had 2 applicants one not suitably qualified the other with a degree so have some hope, but will they stay for any length of time?. Let me know your experiences please.
