Science Industry Manufacturing Technician Apprenticeship Level 3

Science manufacturing technicians operate the systems and equipment, involved in the production of products and work in a wide range of companies including, but not exclusively, chemical, primary and secondary pharmaceutical, biotechnology, formulated products and nuclear manufacturing.

They are proactive in finding solutions to problems and identifying areas for improving their work environment and may work in varied conditions including wearing specialist safety equipment, shift work and on sites running 365-day operations.

Science manufacturing technicians are expected to work both individually and as part of a manufacturing team. They must be able to work with minimum supervision, taking responsibility for the quality and accuracy of the work they undertake.
