Operations Team Member - Goods-In and Facilities

Evonetix is a growing biotechnology company which is set to revolutionise gene synthesis as needed to facilitate the fast-growing and exciting field of synthetic biology. Our technology requires a multidisciplinary team of mechanical, electronic and software engineers, synthetic and surface chemists, physicists and biologists, all supported by a strong corporate function.

Evonetix has recently passed the milestone of 100 staff and is currently exploring options for a site extension. As part of our growth strategy, we are looking to expand the Operations function and recruit a team member focussed on Goods-In and Facilities management.



The Position


We are looking for a team member to take responsibility for two areas of our operations. This role will provide the candidate with a high degree of variety in their work serving a diverse and expanding community. The successful candidate will be part of the Corporate Team which supports the business.


Facilities management.

We are located in a modern, purpose-built facility accommodating over 100 staff. We would like to centralise all facilities issues and provide a fast response to any concerns raised by staff. The responsibilities of this element of the role will include:

  • Primary contact for building management requests and emergencies
  • Arranging service visits for all our main contractors; cleaning, water, electricity, gas, heating/cooling, refuse etc
  • Sourcing new contractors as required
  • Keeping the service documentation up to date


Goods-In, including:

  • Receiving deliveries and acknowledging receipt
  • Alerting members of staff to high priority items
  • Organising the goods-in area to cater for an increasing volume of deliveries
  • Maintaining a stock level of common consumables, both for our general facility and scientific labs
  • Goods-out activity, including specialist packing
  • Receiving guests and visitors


In the short term there is the opportunity for both these roles to expand as we look to expand our premises. In the future it is likely that these roles will form part of separate functions allowing the successful candidate to focus on one area.

We are seeking someone who can demonstrate the following qualities:

  • Diligence and attention to detail
  • Good communication skills
  • Ability to work methodically and quickly
  • Able to work independently and take the initiative to deal with issues that arise

  • Proficiency in Microsoft Word and Excel, and familiarity with database systems (Amici desirable but not essential)
  • Ability to adapt to new IT tools. Knowledge of inventory management systems is desirable but not essential
  • The role requires on-site attendance and for the successful candidate to work principally in our reception area, separate from the rest of our staff who are located in a single open-plan office and across extensive laboratories




Salary and Benefits


The proposed salary is around £25,000 FTE, depending on experience and qualifications.
