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.

An opportunity exists to work within an established team of specialist technical staff, providing support to students and academic staff across a range of photography courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level, and contributing to the delivery and success of collaborative projects across complementary subjects.

Under the line management of the Senior Technician, the successful candidate will support activities across all areas of photography, providing technical and health and safety workshops and demonstrations to groups of students. Duties include issuing and receiving equipment and resources to and from stores; undertaking first-line maintenance, stock checking, auditing and maintaining accurate asset lists and inventories; ensuring processes are followed and documentation produced to maintain and manage health, safety and welfare; and providing effective and reactive technical support throughout the working day.

You will have proven experience, in a technical capacity, across a range of traditional and digital still and moving image photographic practices, including studio and location, flash and continuous lighting, chemical and digital darkroom practices, and colour and black and white processing and printing. Experience of working in an education setting is desirable; of planning, building and dismantling exhibitions, and of working in higher or further education would be advantageous; whilst an understanding and appreciation of workplace health, safety and welfare 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 rotational basis, which may be on or off the University’s main campus.

You must possess GCSE grade A-C, or equivalent, in English and Maths and a level 3 qualification in a relevant related subject. A degree level qualification, or equivalent professional experience in an appropriate field, would be advantageous.

The successful candidate will ideally hold a full UK driving licence, to assist with the transport of materials, equipment and resources.
