This is an exciting opportunity to be part of the Technical Team at our Farnham Campus. We are looking for a skilled individual to support students and provide technical tuition in metal fabrication and a range of bronze and metal casting processes. 

You will oversee the day-to-day care and operation of the Metalworking facilities, providing knowledge, expertise, and experience in creative applications of metalwork processes and safe working practices. 

This will include the delivery of technical workshops and demonstrations into metal working equipment used in cutting, forming, fabrication and finishing techniques alongside metal casting in bronze and pewter. 

This position requires knowledge and understanding of the H&S hazards associated with use of specialist equipment and materials needed when creating metal artworks. Experience of relevant safe working practices and a high degree of knowledge in all appropriate H&S procedures is a must to ensure the safety of our learners.
