About the role
We’re looking for a full time Workshop Technician to help us improve and grow our workshop offering, work with helping members achieve their making goals and deliver external fabrication briefs. The Workshop Technician will be responsible for ensuring a safe and reliable experience and journey through the workshops. The role will involve working closely with the whole team, especially the Workshop Manager.
Makerversity is a membership community of professional makers and disruptors – all businesses who are making something amazing for a living. We assemble this community in shared co-making spaces for radical and wonderful creative businesses working in ways no one can predict.
This means we run physical spaces for a curated community of members, attracting and assembling the leading voices on innovation and future making. In short, we’re a catalyst that fuels the raw talent of today.
As well as providing physical workshop space and fabrication facilities at Somerset House, we exist as a platform to power our members even higher. How? By co-curating cutting-edge content for our public programme and learning projects. And through private partnerships and collaborations that pair our members with businesses or brands that want access to genuine innovation.
- 20,000 sqft of co-working and workshop facilities at Somerset House
- 350+ members comprising 160+ member businesses in our Somerset House community
- 345+ alumni members in our network
- Relationships with the top universities in London and the UK
Our members might be freelancers, startups or small businesses. They could be designers, artists, creatives, makers, inventors or entrepreneurs working across themes such as material innovation, future cities and architecture, contemporary craft, digital manufacturing, or product design. They could be customer-facing, brand-facing or future-facing. And they are as diverse as they are collaborative – all pushing the frontier of contemporary design and making.
