An exciting new vacancy has arisen in the Performance Design and Technologies

Screen. We are looking for a 0.4 Lecturer to join our committed team of specialist 
Academics and Technicians. Your knowledge and skills will ensure relevance,

Duties will involve any associated administration and quality assurance to ensure the smooth running of the course
