THe post

Arts University Bournemouth is the leading professional arts university dedicated to creative education and career success. 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.

We require a specialist in their field, with proven experience, to provide Production Design Co-ordination for our Performance Design subject area, and to be instrumental in the organisation of our BA (Hons) Costume and Performance Design and BA (Hons) Make-Up for Media and Performance co-productions with the BA (Hons) Acting, BA (Hons) Dance and BA (Hons) Film Production courses.

The successful candidate must be conversant with 2D and 3D Auto-Cad software applications for set design and have a thorough understanding of the planning and organisation of theatrical productions staged in smaller studio theatres, larger proscenium arch and site specific performance spaces. A thorough understanding of all scenic construction procurement, disposal and building processes and scenic arts skills is essential.

Working with colleagues across the University and with industry partners, you will work collaboratively with a team of academics, technical staff and freelancers to support student set and costume designers with their learning on live projects, whilst assuming responsibilities regarding health and safety, risk assessments and student welfare. Experience of live theatre production management and knowledge of effective workplace health and safety are essential.

The successful candidate will have excellent communication and organisational skills and will be educated to degree level in an appropriate subject, or have equivalent professional experience.

The University supports the continued professional development of its staff, and actively encourages training and qualifications aligned to the individual’s role.

In order to cover the provision of the work space to students, occasional evening and weekend working will be a requirement of this post. It is also a requirement that the appointed candidate holds a full UK driver’s license.
