This is a unique and exciting role as part of the Technical Management Team, supporting the Head of Technical Resources in leading a large team of Technical Coordinators and College technical staff. You will play an integral part in ensuring that Central Saint Martins continues to provide world-class technical resources to its students, and that those resources are being managed efficiently and safely. You will help to plan access to technical facilities for students, staff and external users, and be the main point of contact in support of teaching programmes, external activities and research.

You will also help to develop and support the college digital strategy, contributing to future developments, defining technical resource requirements and specifications, and take the technical lead with emerging technologies.

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. 

You will have demonstrable experience of strategic and operational management operations in a collaborative, multi-disciplinary team within an HE environment.

You will ideally have extensive technical experience in one or more of the following fields: Digital Print, Digital Fabrication, 2D and 3D CAD modelling, Digital Media, Digital Arts, Bio Design / Manufacture, Photography, or Printmaking. You will have a knowledge and understanding of relevant Health and Safety legislation and its effective operational implementation.

You will have experience of managing large projects and budgets effectively, with a drive to lead continual improvements in our technical resource. Above all we are looking for a creative individual who can effectively manage and implement new resources and provide leadership to a multi-skilled and talented technical team at a world class institution.

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. Relocation assistance is available.
