The University of Essex has been a signatory of the Technician Commitment since May 2017.
The Technician Commitment is a university and research institution initiative, led by a steering group of sector bodies, with support from the Science Council and the Gatsby Charitable Foundation’s Technicians Make It Happen campaign.
The Commitment aims to ensure visibility, recognition, career development and sustainability for technicians working in higher education and research, across all disciplines.
As part of our Technician Commitment, the University has developed a set of template job descriptions for technical roles. These are designed as starting points which are then tailored to individual roles.
