We are looking to recruit an enthusiastic and adaptable Technician Demonstrator in Art and Design, specifically within the material area of Wood to support the development and delivery of the curriculum across the subject area. In addition to working within the Applied Arts, the candidate is expected to support the wider curriculum in Art and Design, which covers a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses. Due to the cross-disciplinary nature of the faculty the candidate would be expected to support requests from across the faculty, where appropriate.
The teaching and research activity in Applied Art involves a significant element of workshop activities. The post involves providing specialist knowledge linked to technical and practical support contributing to the practical education of students through instruction and demonstration. The post holder will also develop links with industry and encourage opportunities for students to work on live projects as part of this dynamic practice-based subject.
The successful candidate will provide demonstrations of the use of equipment to relevant users. This will involve providing general support across the subject provision, especially techniques and equipment related to wood and alternative materials. This will include supporting student practical activity and achievement, maintaining equipment and assisting in the installation of exhibitions.
Applicants should hold at least a HNC level technical qualification or a BA or equivalent or relevant work experience. Proven communication and organisational skills are vital to the role, and to be able and willing to engage collaboratively with the management of practical spaces and ensuring a robust culture of health and safety to help enhance the student experience across our courses.
The role is varied and challenging, so you will need to be a highly motivated individual who is able to work flexibly and to tight deadlines, both independently and as part of a team.
The ability to speak Welsh is desirable, but not essential.
