Our culture of creating, interpreting and shaping cultures is central to our learning, research and engagement.

An opportunity arose to provide technical support to the university’s studio environments, primarily in the area of ​​interior design, but also to support the wider community.

The role of the Technician is to provide broad general technical support in the field, with various deliverables to meet the requirements of a range of courses and activities.

Working alongside a team of demonstrator technicians, the technician ensures the smooth running of the interior design studios while providing support and advice on software and equipment to students, assisting colleagues during initiations and workshops and contributes to the preparation, construction and dismantling of exhibitions.

As the ideal candidate, you will be able to demonstrate in-depth knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite as well as Auto CAD and Manufacturing software packages. An understanding of health and safety work practices is essential, as is the ability to effectively prioritize and work both as a member of a team and independently using your own initiative.

You will need to be flexible in your approach to the workday and environment, as regular evening and weekend work is required on a rotational basis, which may be on or off the main campus of the university.

You must have GCSE AC grade, or equivalent, in English and Maths and a Level 3 qualification in an art and design related subject. A degree or equivalent experience in a relevant field would be an asset. It is also desirable that you are in possession of a full UK/EU driving licence.
