Female physics technician

Technical Talent of the Future

Here at the University Of Nottingham our technical staff are the backbone of the practical work both within teaching and research. We have technical staff from all sorts of backgrounds, with varied and wide-ranging skills, undertaking new challenges on a daily basis. From Healthcare and biosciences to precision mechanical manufacturing, our technicians all work to support staff and students in the search for new knowledge.

Does this sound exciting? To be part of something that could change the world! Whether it be a new surgical implant or a new component for a state of the art jet engine, all this starts with an idea. These ideas need to be converted into reality, this is the role of the technician… to make these dreams work!

To get the skills and experience we need to deliver on these, sometimes wild ideas, we have found that the best thing is to ‘grow our own’. This means to recognise people who have the drive and ambition to think outside the box, bring them into the technical services family, train and develop them to be the Technical Talent of the Future!

Would you like a new challenge and a great place to work?

Here at the University, there are new opportunities coming online all the time, so watch this space. If you would like to start a career or would like a change, we would welcome an application to one of our ‘Technical Talent of the Future’ roles. These have been selected out of our pool of current vacancies and have been brought together in one place so that you can see them all, maybe there’s one for you!
