The University of West London is a leading modern university specialising in the education and development of exceptional creative, business and service professionals.
The London School of Film, Media and Design, an exciting and innovative new School within the University of West London, will be formally launched in September 2015. Building on the University's new strategic plan: Ambition 2018, the School will be at the heart of our vision to provide a high quality career-focused student experience connected to the world of work and underpinned by a guaranteed work placement.
The London School of Film, Media and Design's vision is to be nationally and internationally recognised as a vibrant hub of creative learning, which will produce graduates who are 'Connected Creatives' - distinguished not only by their intellectual capabilities, but also by their enterprising qualities, employability and skills, and their aptitude and ambition to contribute to the creative lives of their communities.
In preparation for the launch of the School we wish to appoint a technician demonstrator with a specialism in technical support for photographic studios to provide a professional level of technical instruction, curriculum support, demonstration and supervision for the technical facilities, equipment and/or processes in the School. You will be able to provide technical assistance, advice and instruction to all stakeholders, including students, academic staff, and external customers.
You must be supportive of the vision for the London School of Film, Media and Design, and able to work as part of a team to enable the effective operation and delivery of technical support and services across the School. You will need to be self-motivated, possess excellent communication skills and will have a creative approach to problem solving within the University's extensive studio environments. You must have a relevant degree or equivalent qualification, or significant industrial experience, and have thorough and up to date knowledge of contemporary photographic studios and practice. Previous experience of working in a technical support role will be an advantage.
Please be advised that it is expected that appointment within a grade will normally be at the minimum point.
