Part-Time Science Technician

Required January 2022

Salary SCP 01-02 £10,037 - £10,217 (FTE £20,658 - £21,030)

20 hours p/w, Term Time + 1 Week

Lammas School is a secondary school with VI Form provision in Leyton, East London. We have been serving the community for 20 years since we opened in September 2001 and are proud of the impact we are making on the lives of our young people.

In these exceptional times we will do our best to show you the heart of Lammas so that you can get a sense of how well matched you may be to our professional community as a school and indeed as a Trust. Please look at our website (which is rather out-dated and in the process of a total re-build) and explore the Trust website as fully as you can ( You will see evidence of the shared life of the schools in the Trust in events such as the Science Symposium, the Arts Festival, the Sports Festival and Founders Day.

The Trust really is a family of schools which work closely together within and across phases and geographical hubs. So in joining Lammas you do have good relationships with local authority schools and projects, but you also have a strong working relationship with your peers in the secondary school in North Warwickshire, as well as day to day involvement with our two GST neighbour primaries – Willow Brook and Riverley – both outstanding and one a shining example of what a Griffin Great School looks and feels like. It is that journey to Griffin Great that informs our development planning. Ofsted validates our progress within a defined national framework: it emphatically does not set our agenda.

We are looking for a Science Technician who is suitably experienced and/or qualified to provide technical support to our Science department in the delivery of the curriculum up to A level. Your good communication skills will enable you to build excellent working relationships with Lammas students and staff. You will also have a passion for Science and a professional manner.  

To apply for this position please include a full CV with the names and direct contact details of two referees and the completed Safer Recruitment form.

Completed applications should be addressed to Mark Bland and sent to

The deadline for application is 12noon on Tuesday 30 November 2021.

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, and applicants must be willing to undergo child protection screening appropriate to the post including checks with past employers and the Disclosure and Barring Service.

Equal Opportunities

Waltham Forest is a diverse borough where diversity is valued and is integral to both, service delivery and employment of its staff. The Council is proud of its rich mix of communities and as the largest employer in the area, it works hard to respond to the changing needs of its population. We use our statutory duties on race, gender and disability equality and best practice in respect of age, faith and sexual orientation to ensure equality of opportunity in the workplace. The Council is committed to meeting its 4 equality objectives: - Promoting equality of opportunity - Opposing all forms of discrimination, intolerance and disadvantage - Ensuring our workforce reflects the diverse communities of Waltham Forest at all levels. - Providing fair, appropriate, accessible and excellent Services to all. Respecting Diversity is a core Council value. To support the above and reduce the risk of bias in its recruitment activities, the council is operating an anonymous shortlisting process, which hides personal information that can identify individuals until their application has been considered for shortlisting. The council also operates a scheme whereby, for jobs graded up to and including scale SO2, internal candidates are considered first. This includes those candidates who self-identify as having a disability for the purposes of the Disability Confident scheme.
