Studio West is an exciting studio school, which opened in September 2014. As part of Northern Leaders Trust, Studio West cater for around 550 students aged between 11 and 19 with student numbers increasing year on year. We are expected to reach 650 at full capacity. Rated “Good” by Ofsted, Studio West offers students an innovative and bespoke curriculum with an emphasis on employability and life skills. We have close working relationships with our business partners and our mission is to make sure that every student who leaves Studio West, does so with a university place, an apprenticeship or employment.

We are currently seeking applications for the role of Technology Technician, to support within our multi-skilled department team in the setting up and dismantling of equipment and resources, ordering and maintaining stocks and supplies and where necessary supporting in practical Technology and Construction lessons.

We are seeking candidates with excellent interpersonal skills with the ability to work well with both children and adults. A knowledge of health and safety with the ability to carry out risk assessments is essential.

Whilst the role will involve supporting all Technology lessons, a large proportion of working time will be spent working within Resistant Materials and Construction, therefore a relevant qualification and/or experience working in either discipline would be desirable.

If you have skills, experience and commitment to succeed in this role, we want to hear from you.  In return, we offer fantastic developmental possibilities due to working as part Northern Leaders, and our forward thinking management and staff working together to offer the best available chances for our students.

In return we offer:

  • Salary sacrifice schemes such as car and cycle to work.
  • Access to free gym facilities on our Kenton School site.
  • The opportunity to work in a fantastically resourced school with easy commuting access to both the A1 and A19, in a supportive team committed to the development of all our staff.
  • Free on-site parking
  • Access to a range of health and wellbeing initiatives
