We are looking for an enthusiastic and proactive Science Technician to join our successful team delivering high quality support to the science department. The successful candidate should have excellent interpersonal skills, be efficient and organised, with a sound knowledge base including the safe use and storage of equipment and chemicals. Ideally you will have experience in a laboratory or similar environment. If you are passionate about science, enjoy working in a busy role, then we would love to hear from you.

About The Blue Coat CofE School
We are very proud of our school, which attracts students from across Greater Manchester and beyond. It first opened in 1834. Our founder, Thomas Henshaw, was a committed Anglican who left a bequest to fund a school which would provide education for the orphaned boys of the parish.
From these humble beginnings, the Blue Coat School has become one of the biggest and most successful schools in the country. The school has a national reputation for high quality teaching and learning, pastoral care, consistently excellent examination results and outstanding progress. Our most recent OFSTED inspection in 2011/2 judged the school to be outstanding in every category. As a result, Blue Coat has been designated a National Teaching School which means that we work with schools nationally and locally to develop the very best educational provision. Blue Coat is grounded in tradition and history, and is evolving and forward looking. Our historic campus has been restored and developed extensively; our students enjoy picnic lunches in front of a Grade II listed building but their learning takes place in superb 21st century classrooms, laboratories and studios.
Blue Coat is dedicated to serving young people, to enable them to become everything they can be and everything that they are meant to be. We are a Church of England school that welcomes members of other Christian denominations, and of other faiths.
Our Anglican beliefs, values and worship are at the core of our life together in school.
