Technical Assistant - 3D First Floor

University of the Arts London, Central Saint Martins

As a Technical Assistant, you will be working within our workshops ensuring both staff and students are adhering to health and safety regulations and supervising and assisting students with their work.

You will not only bring key skills with you but will have the opportunity to develop new skills and experience across a wide range of technical workshops. This post is largely a flexible role and you will work to a structured roster over the course of the year, however the working pattern will mainly cover our term times.

An understanding of design protocols is a pre-requisite of the role as is a basic awareness of Health and Safety issues. However, all successful applicants will be fully trained up to a standard appropriate to the post.

Why choose us?

Central Saint Martins is a world-leading centre for arts and design education. Its reputation stems from the creative energy of its staff and students and the stellar achievements of its graduates nationally and internationally.

The nine programmes at CSM explore the boundaries of their discipline. Students and staff are continually alert to new ideas, and are curious and restless in developing beyond the expected norms of their subject, so emerging work is at the forefront of its area.  

CSM sits at the heart of London’s creative scene, and of one of Europe’s most dynamic new culture and innovation quarters at King’s Cross, making the college increasingly important to London’s cultural life, and indicative of our general desire to open up CSM to as broad an audience as possible. 

Your profile

We would welcome applicants from the following disciplines:

  • Product/Industrial Design
  • Furniture Design
  • Ceramic Design
  • Jewellery Design
  • Architecture

This post is primarily suitable for recent graduates from MA/BA Design courses, however we do welcome interest from a wide variety of candidates who have an interest in furthering their knowledge of workshop based practice and discipline.

In return, University of the Arts London offers generous leave, an attractive pension and a commitment to your continuing personal development and training in an environment that encourages excellence, creativity and diversity. Relocation assistance is available.
