Surface Performance are accredited by FIFA, The FA, The FIH, The ITF and UKAS to undertake performance field testing and certification of sports surfaces.

You will need to be an excellent team player and able to fit into our existing dynamic operation which is supported by the lab manager and other site technicians. You  will also be required to work independently and demonstrate initiative and excellent organisational skills. The role will be managed from our SW London office however the majority of your time would be spent on site, both in The UK and abroad. The position involves a willingness to travel and a clean full UK driving license is therefore essential.

Your day to day responsibilities will predominantly involve the testing of fields and the reporting of the results. You will need to work in accordance with our ISO 17025 quality system and full training and support will be offered by the senior technicians and the lab manager. You may also be asked to offer support to other areas of the business and therefore a diverse attitude and enthusiasm for learning the ins and outs of the business is of key importance.

Previous experience of testing is preferable although not essential as full training will be given. A track history of working within the UK sports surface industry would also be beneficial.

Benefits include a competitive renumeration package (subject to experience), company van, company phone, company laptop and company credit card.
