As the post holder for this key role within the Photography Team, you will be responsible for the day-to-day digital operation and digital administration of the Photography Studios and Darkrooms ensuring an excellent level of service to students and staff.

This is a unique role established to help in the development and delivery of a customer orientated and technically knowledgeable service that compliments and enhances the student experience. The post holder will take a lead role in a number of key areas, including: supporting and running an online booking system; processing requests from students and staff and supporting the team’s communication and organisational systems; being responsible for the ordering of equipment, consumables and services; and working collaboratively with the Technical Team and Technical Coordinator to ensure the effective use and monitoring of budgets, and the development of the photography service.

Central Saint Martins is a world-leading centre for arts and design education.  Its reputation stems from the creative energy of its staff and students and the stellar achievements of its graduates nationally and internationally. The nine programmes at CSM explore the boundaries of their discipline. Students and staff are continually alert to new ideas, and are curious and restless in developing beyond the expected norms of their subject, so emerging work is at the forefront of its area.  CSM sits at the heart of London’s creative scene, and of one of Europe’s most dynamic new culture and innovation quarters at King’s Cross, making the college increasingly important to London’s cultural life, and indicative of our general desire to open up CSM to as broad an audience as possible. 

The post will be based in Photography - a professional grade technical facility that supports students from a wide range of courses who use Photography, either as a medium in its own right or for documenting work to a very high standard. 

We’re looking for a candidate who has received formal training or education at post 16 level. The successful candidate will have demonstrable experience in Photography or Lens-Based technical facilities, within an educational or professional environment or with suitable transferrable skills. Experience of administering an online resource management or booking system would be advantageous.

In return, University of the Arts London offers generous leave, an attractive pension and a commitment to your continuing personal development and training in an environment that encourages excellence, creativity and diversity. If you have any queries about this role please contact the CSM Staffing Team email or telephone 0207 514 7885.

At UAL, everyone's identity matters. We are committed to creating a supportive and inclusive environment for all our diverse students, staff, and the creative and cultural sector partners with whom we engage. We aim to take every opportunity to progress equality and diversity, and celebrate the enrichment this brings to our community.
