Post: Food Technology Technician
Grade: G4, point 4 £9.81 per hour, pay award pending (actual salary £7,020 per annum)
Start date: As soon as possible
Contract: Permanent, term time only plus Inset Days
Closing date: Applications processed on arrival

We are seeking to appoint a talented, dedicated, and versatile person to join our team. The successful candidate will join our Technology department working to support the preparation and delivery of food technology lessons. There may also be some work with Textiles. Salary is on Grade 4 for 16 hours per week over 39 weeks.

This post would suit a candidate with experience / interest in food and catering. Knowledge of safe working practices in kitchens and food hygiene accreditation would be helpful, although training can be provided. Practical knowledge and an interest in textile-based technologies and equipment such as sewing machines and over lockers would also be useful.

The position is subject to a variable hours clause where the contracted hours can be reduced by a third. This enables schools to manage the fluctuations in pupil’s needs that can occur from one year to the next while offering a permanent contract.

Our ethos of aspiration, opportunity and integrity are at the heart of Fitzharrys’ sustained success. We are a good school (Ofsted, June 2016) with strong results that improve year on year. Ofsted praised our “warm and welcoming culture with a shared drive for continual improvement”. This is a very special place, and we are looking for the right candidate who is excited at the prospect of joining us and taking such a key role in our continued success.

All Fitzharrys staff benefit from our induction programme and our comprehensive CPD programme as part of a school community committed to getting the best from everyone. Through our focus on high quality teaching and learning, and excellent behaviour, our school continues to grow and develop.

We are proud of our students, and in turn they are proud to be part of the Fitzharrys community. Parents are supportive of the work of the school, recognising our high aspirations for every student who attends; they are both challenged to achieve highly, and supported in doing so.

This is an exciting time to join us in our continued development. If you want to be part of a school with strong working relationships at the heart of every interaction, a committed and caring staff, and a culture of working to get the very best from every child, then we look forward to meeting you.
