We have a vacancy for a model technician in our building team, based in Wallingford, Oxfordshire.

The physical model building team construct highly accurate scale physical models in our extensive test facilities. To get an idea of the work involved in this role, take a look at this information on our modelling facilities, and see a video showing an example of the building team’s recent work.

Duties include assisting with the construction of experimental models for civil engineering projects and general maintenance of the model facilities. The majority of work will be undertaken indoors in our extensive experimental facilities.

Experience in the building trade particularly floor screeding or plastering and a clean driving licence would be an advantage, although on the job training/support will be provided. The capability to work from technical drawings and/or verbal instruction, self-motivation, a ‘can do’ attitude are desirable.

Additional skills such as basic carpentry and construction plant licences or proven experience with heavy machinery (digger/roller/dumper) would be useful; training/refresher training will be provided as required, and we are open to considering an apprenticeship, or day release at college, to develop/expand skill sets if appropriate.
