Do you have experience of working in the film industry or running your own filmmaking business and are you passionate about passing on your knowledge to students? Are you looking for a challenging role in an environment that is open, vibrant and welcomes new ideas? Then join UEL as Lecturer in Film Production and you could soon be developing and delivering high quality, innovative and engaging teaching in the Film area.

At UEL we know the world of work is changing and that means our students will need to develop critical thinking, emotional intelligence and resilience to realise their potential, which is why we’ve embedded these future-proofed tools at the heart of every one of our degrees. We’re also looking for outstanding teachers who exude a love of teaching, inspire and motivate students and colleagues. 

Your challenge? To design, develop and deliver innovative teaching across a range of modules and courses in Film Production at undergraduate level. You’ll also collaborate with colleagues and management on the development of existing and new programmes with the view of continuous improvement.

As well as a degree or equivalent in a related discipline, you’ll have a postgraduate qualification and/or significant professional experience in making films. You will have an understanding of a range of relevant industries and film business contexts and experience in collaborating with industry partners and/or a successful track record of consultancy.

We are particularly looking for academics that have experience in one or more of the following areas taught at UEL: 

  • the craft of filmmaking: pre-production (storyboarding/screenwriting/previs), production, editing, post-production, camera operating, sound, with an emphasis on current industry standard digital workflows and adaptation to different platforms 
  • business and entrepreneurial skills to prepare students for work in the industry in its broadest sense, e.g. preparation for self-employment and freelance work in filmmaking
  • embedding a high level of critical, technical, business and creative analysis of film into teaching filmmaking practice and using this to strengthen students’ own practice

Adept at conveying ideas to students from a range of backgrounds, you will also bring a deep commitment to anti-racist teaching practice, closing the award gap, gender equality, and LGBTQIA empowerment. You will also enjoy developing professional relationships with students, colleagues, employers, and outside agencies alike. 

At UEL, we aim to attract and retain the best possible staff and offer a working environment at the heart of a dynamic region with excellent transport links. You can look forward to a warm, sincere welcome, genuine camaraderie and mobility in an institution led with passion, visibility and purpose. Your impact, resilience and sense of collegiality will directly contribute to UEL’s future and those of the students whose lives you will touch and change forever. 

We also offer a great range of benefits including a generous pension, family friendly policies and an on-site nursery and gym at our Docklands Campus. 

If you would like an informal discussion about the role please email Dr Rosemary Stott, Head of Media Department,
