The Asbestos Analyst carries out analysis of materials suspected of containing asbestos, working in a friendly laboratory environment with a team of four other analysts. This role would suit anyone with an interest in examining samples and using microscopic techniques.

No previous experience is necessary as full training will be given.

Samples received must be inspected initially in a glove box under a stereo microscope for the presence of fibres and then the fibres are mounted onto microscope slides and examined further under plane polarised light microscopy. All observations are noted and then the resulting fibre types identified are recorded electronically on our TEAMS computer system together with the classification of the type of material.

The company will expect the post holder to be hard working and dedicated and be able to take some responsibility for their own workload.

A minimum of 5 GCSE???s including Maths, English and science is required.

The position is based on a 35-hour working week with a starting salary of ??14,000, rising to ??15,000 following the initial three-month training period. Occasionally the post holder may be asked to work during a weekend. Should this happen, weekend work will be paid at time and a half. The company offers 4 weeks paid leave per year plus all nationally recognised Bank Holidays. The post holder will be able to join the company pension scheme upon completion of a three month probation period if they so wish. The company operates a flexi-time scheme.

Salary will be negotiable for applicants with a P401 qualification and previous experience.
