Kingston School of Art (KSA) is seeking to recruit a creative and highly motivated individual to join the Printmaking, Letterpress and Book Arts (PLBA) team. The PLBA workshop is a busy area offering specialist student resources to support the creation, development and production of high-quality work in a variety of print-related processes, and supporting teaching, research and enterprise at KSA.
The successful candidate will be working together the PLBA team to facilitate the smooth and safe running of the workshop for staff and students from foundational, Undergraduate, Postgraduate and PhD levels. The role is focused on supporting Printmaking (Screenprinting, Intaglio, Relief and Risography), and, additionally, the successful candidate will also be expected to have the initiative and aptitude to develop knowledge and skills in Book Arts and Letterpress processes and techniques.
The successful candidate will have the appropriate skills and experience to provide support for a range of Printmaking processes. Knowledge of Book Arts and Letterpress is desirable but not essential.
Experience facilitating Printmaking techniques in an educational setting, ideally in higher education, is essential for this role. Additionally, the successful candidate will have to be an exceptional communicator with good time management skills and a strong work ethic. They should be an excellent team player with a proven ability to work collaboratively at all levels to achieve results and to encourage experimentation that would promote high standard student work.
This position is well suited to persons in the earlier stages of their career who are keen to develop their career further within the workshop, and the successful candidate will be supported in developing their printmaking, pedagogic and creative practices.
This is a part-time position, working 22.2 hours per week with a starting salary of £18,280 (60% to £30,468).
Interviews are expected to take place on Thursday 25 August 2022.
