Ledbury, Herefordshire

Competitive Salary

Our Client has an outstanding reputation for quality in the field of preclinical contract research. They can offer a busy, varied and technically challenging working environment, where they are committed to offering the best training and development.

We now have several exciting opportunities for Animal Support Technicians to join them, with an immediate start available where possible!

The main role of the Support Technician is the conduct of husbandry procedures for all species, e.g. feeding, watering, bedding and cage changing in all species. Other duties would include routine cleaning of the animal rooms and equipment and assisting experienced Animal Technologists with technical procedures. The Support Technician, depending upon ability, may also be trained in many other tasks.

The animal technicians work within small teams, sometimes working on their own for periods of time and they do require flexibility in working hours since they organise the working day around study requirements. You must be prepared to be on the weekend work rota. Ideally you will have previous experience of working with animals before. It is also desirable if you hold an animal related scientific qualification.

As a long standing Bronze Investors in People organisation and having won a Commitment to Training award this year, our Client is confident that they can offer a varied role with a clear progression path, together with a good range of company benefits.
