Job Description


Arts University Bournemouth is the leading professional arts university dedicated to turning creativity into careers. Offering courses in art, design, architecture, media and performance, we are passionate about our specialist subjects and dedicated both to education and the creative industries which we serve. 

An opportunity exists to provide operational technical leadership to our Photography subject area, and line manage an established team of skilled Technicians and Technician Demonstrators.

The post holder will ensure, and contribute to, the provision of specialist support to students studying on BA Photography, BA and MA Commercial Photography and a range of professional short courses across the subject area, under the management of the Faculty Technical Manager.

Key duties of this post include delivering and supporting technical and health and safety workshops and demonstrations to groups of students; ensuring the continuous availability of resources through effective proactive and reactive maintenance; coordinating and collating subject area capital and non-capital equipment request submissions; providing subject area leadership to ensure resource areas and student live projects are compliant with health, safety and welfare legislation and in line with university policies; and providing effective and reactive technical support throughout the working day.

You will have proven experience of team leadership or line management, alongside technical expertise across a range of traditional and digital still and moving image photographic practices, including studio and location shooting, flash and continuous lighting equipment, chemical and digital darkroom practices and colour and black and white processing and printing. Experience of working in an education setting is desirable, whilst understanding effective workplace health and safety, and the ability to work as a member of a team and independently using your own initiative is essential.

You will need to be flexible in your approach to the working day and environment as this varied post supports a diverse range of individuals, and will entail evening and weekend working on a rota basis, which may be on or off the University’s main campus.

You must possess a first degree, or equivalent, in a photography subject, or have significant industry experience, as well as GCSE grade A-C, or equivalent, in English and Maths. It is desirable that you will be in possession of a full UK/EU driving license.
