Our campuses across Surrey and Kent are vibrant communities, each specialising in different areas of the creative industries.

Are you ready to share your passion for creativity with the next generation of innovators? If so, we want to hear from you.
The University for the Creative Arts (UCA) seeks to appoint an experienced practitioner and academic in Fine Art, to become Programme Director for our undergraduate and postgraduate Fine Art courses at our Canterbury Campus.
This is a unique opportunity for someone with creativity, skill, enthusiasm and experience, to join the UK’s top creative specialist institution and to lead our Fine Art at Canterbury as we build on our research successes and enhance our professional networks both in the region and globally.
You will be an inspirational leader that can motivate and direct a team of practicing artists and academics, inspiring and engaging them and their students to achieve excellence. You will have a profile that includes research, professional experience and keen knowledge of current issues in higher education. You will be highly organised, with excellent administrative skills and confident in using virtual learning environments, digital systems and processes. Your experience will enable you to work collaboratively with other members of the School Management Team to lead and support the wider strategic activities of the School and the University in terms of portfolio development, recruitment and research. As an educator, you will have a passion for the development and enhancement of fine art education, and enthusiasm for tradition, innovation, interdisciplinary and collaborative practices, as well as a critical understanding of the social, cultural, economic and environmental factors for artists, art and art education, including decolonising practices, mental health and wellbeing, diversity, inclusion and LGBTQIA+. You will also have a high awareness of the professional environment for emerging artists, strong connections in the art world across a range of sectors, and the ability to strategize and develop opportunities for our graduates.
