A new role as Sterilisation and Waste Technician has become available within supporting successful functions and smooth running of a busy Life Science centre. The London BioScience Innovation Centre (LBIC) provides a focus for life sciences activity in London, offering laboratory and office facilities of an exceptionally high standard as well as virtual client support.

As a vital part of the Sterilisation Suite Team (*see below What is a Sterilisation Suite), you will be responsible for ensuring the collection and delivery of all glassware, media (chemicals and/or solid materials dissolved in a liquid, usually water) and pipette tips (small plastic tips used with pipettes to dispense liquids) using the designated trolley to the LBIC Client laboratories. You will also be responsible for the daily collection and processing of all special waste from the laboratories and the handling of all associated paperwork. The post holder will also be required to organise other waste collections such as bulk waste, solvent waste and electronic waste on an ad-hoc basis when required.

The role would suit someone looking to take their first steps in the Life Science sector, experience delivering excellent customer service would be an advantage as would an awareness of working with chemicals (perhaps in a cleaning role). You’ll be working to tight deadlines so you’ll need to be well organised and be able to keep up to date records and notes. You’ll also be monitoring stock levels and working within a small team – so good teamwork and communication skills are also required.
