We pride ourselves in offering a vibrant and inclusive environment, instilling our students with a sense of confidence, passion, and achievement. Creative collaborative learning, in and beyond the curriculum, is a key feature of the student experience across the Arts and Creative Industries Faculty. This, together with the vicinity of London's many theatre and dance venues in this global city, makes for a unique learning experience.

The role will typically be held by an experienced practitioner/emerging academic. The successful candidate will contribute to the student learning and teaching experience, and to the research or professional practice and knowledge transfer profiles of the Faculty. The post holder will work within an established academic team.
