Vacancy for a metalwork technician for the metal workshop
The Gerrit Rietveld Academie is looking for a technician for our metal workshop for the period of January to June 2015
Due to the extended leave of one of our staff, the Gerrit Rietveld Academie has a temporary vacancy for a metalwork technician for the metal workshop.
The metal workshop at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie is an open workshop. This means that students from different disciplines within the Rietveld Academie and the Sandberg Institute (the Master's programme) can use the workshop and make use of the expertise of the workshop staff.
What are we looking for?
A metalwork technician who has extensive experience of working with metal and a thorough familiarity with the associated techniques. This means that he/she must be proficient in MIG/TIG welding, turning, milling, etc. However, the technician's most important task is to offer students creative and practical input and support, drawing on their technical knowledge and experience at the right moment and in the right way. Other duties include maintenance of the equipment and stock management.
Most of the students at the Rietveld Academie have an international background, so the common language of communication will generally be English. This means that the new technician will need to have a good command of spoken English. Finally, some periods in the metal workshop are much busier than others. The main busy period is around the time of the final exams in June and July. For this reason the technician is expected to be flexible and prepared to work longer hours in June than during other periods of the year.
What are we offering?
A temporary appointment for 22 hours a week for a period of six months. The working days are Tuesday and Thursday (15.00-22.00) and Friday (09.30-16.30). The salary grade will be determined on the basis of your qualifications and experience and is in accordance with scale 8 of the CAO-HBO (Collective Labour Agreement for Universities of Applied Sciences).
If you are interested in this position, please send an email to Mr W. van Rossum at email@example.com before 6 December 2014, including your CV and cover letter as attachments.
For more details about what activities the job involves, please contact Jan Bos at the metal workshop, on 020 5711615 (available Mondays and Tuesdays).
No agencies please.
Wood recycling by students
Recycling of materials is a common thing at the Rietveld Academie. Students re-use, change and transform anything from fabric to clay. Even trees! The organisation Stadshout is always in search of a second life for the wood of trees in Amsterdam that need to be removed. Some of the trees that were going into the shredder, are now made available for our students to work with.
