Whether you’re just starting out in your career, or have years of experience under your belt, you don’t want to find yourself stuck dipping a toe in the water – it’s time to dive in!

Here at STFC we can offer you the chance to work at cutting-edge science facilities. We pride ourselves on our world class innovation, research and skills – and our results, which have a huge impact on everyday real life.

  • We maintain and develop many of the UK’s ‘big science’ facilities, including the Central Laser Facility and ISIS neutron and muon source. Join us and be part of something life-changing.
  • Our Campuses host over 230 enterprises and support more than 5,000 jobs. This year our tenant companies at Sci-Tech Daresbury created over 100 jobs, delivered £35 million sales, attracted £63 million of investment and developed 150 new products. Come and help us boost innovation.
  • Our research is helping to solve real-world problems, and make a difference to everyday lives. For example, an STFC research team at ISIS has recently made a discovery that could be a game changer in the development of hydrogen as a clean fuel. Share your skills and make a real difference.
  • STFC research inspires future generations to study STEM subjects. From 2009 to 2012 our public engagement programmes reached 58 million people, and this year we engaged two million people in face-to-face activities. Be a part of inspiring the researchers of the future.

To continue working at this level, we need to recruit staff of the highest calibre. Our Talent Pool gives recruiting managers the ability to search through submitted CVs to find candidates for their vacancies, and immediately send an email encouraging them to formally apply for a position. Being part of the Talent Pool gives you the opportunity to showcase your skills and experience in front of the right people, at the right time. We welcome CVs from all disciplines, including scientists, administrative and professional individuals. We’re particularly interested in hearing from engineers (including mechanical, electrical and electronic engineers).

To be part of our Talent Pool, simply email your CV and a brief cover letter, outlining the role or type of work you would like to undertake at STFC.

So, if you’d like the chance to work at one of our high-tech science and innovation campuses, with attractive benefits and plenty of opportunity for development, register your CV with our talent pool today.
