KWMC The Factory: Part-Time Technician

The Factory is looking for a Part-Time Technician. The role is offered at 30 hours a week on a fixed-term contract until March 2023. The closing date for applications is 21st June 2021. We would like the successful candidate to start ASAP. 

We are looking for an experienced, proactive person who loves working with manual and digital fabrication design and technology. A supportive communicator with a patient, approachable and enthusiastic manner who loves working with people to make things happen!      

Our ideal candidate would be someone who is experienced in the use of a range of design and fabrication equipment/ software, is enthusiastic about its potential and also able to impart this knowledge and passion in others.  With a practical solutions-focussed approach grounded in real-life experience, you will work in partnership with our team to support the safe and inclusive use of our equipment and spaces.     

Alongside strong technical skills, it is vital that this individual has the personal skills to both inspire and deliver practical training and support to our community of makers, course participants and small businesses. This post is funded by SBES (South Bristol Enterprise Support) and as such particular focus will be given to supporting early-stage and growing creative businesses in our workshops and by supporting the creation of new designs and prototypes through our funded MADE (Make, Access, Develop, Enterprise) enterprise support initiatives.  

The Factory is a busy and evolving operation and it is important that the Factory Technician is comfortable working in an open, organised and flexible manner to ensure our objectives are met efficiently and to a high standard.          

We are aware this is an ever-evolving field and anticipate and welcome interest from a range of experiences (for example education, arts production, product design, fabrication or perhaps running your own creative business). Whilst training can be provided where appropriate, it is essential that the post-holder has a base knowledge of operating digital fabrication equipment and a commitment to staying abreast of skills and trends in creative technology.     

We welcome and encourage applications from those currently underrepresented in our workforce and in the arts community; particularly any applicant who identifies as working-class, as a person of colour, transgender, non-binary or genderqueer, D/deaf, visually impaired, disabled or neurodivergent
