Do you have proven experience of working in a Technical support role and experience using complex technical equipment?

If you also have excellent troubleshooting and diagnostic skills, with an ability to assess non-routine problems and implement solutions within own expertise then the opportunity to join us as a Technician (Linguistics) on an ongoing, part time basis (namely 14 hours per week) could be the opportunity you are looking for.

As Technician (Linguistics), you will:

operate technical equipment, assisting staff and students

pro-actively update and improve processes, contribute to and support change in the work area

understand, promote and apply relevant COSHH/risk assessments and departmental health and safety protocols ensuring procedures are followed at all times

provide in class support and demonstration to student facing teaching activities

To succeed in this role you will have:

an education to A level or equivalent qualification or experience

excellent working knowledge of safety regulations and procedures, e.g., risk assessment, COSHH

experience in supporting the procurement of technical equipment

excellent numeracy skills, accuracy and attention to detail

We envisage that this role could be filled in conjunction with another part-time opportunity within the department and would therefore particularly welcome applications from candidates applying for both roles. Where an applicant applies for both roles, a single interview will cover both applications but two separate applications need to be made. Applications for a single role are also welcome.

The School of Cultures and Languages offers teaching courses in the areas of English Language and Linguistics, Modern Languages and Comparative Literature. It is home to over 300 students and 30 academic staff supported by administrative and technical staff within the Division of Arts & Humanities.

The department of Modern Languages and Linguistics offers a vibrant teaching and research environment with a state of the art Linguistics Lab.
