Detail information about job Year Leader, MA Graphic Communication Design (Maternity Cover). Terms and conditions vacancy
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.
We are seeking to appoint a half-time (0.5 FTE) Year Leader on MA Graphic Communication Design to cover maternity leave from early December 2017 until approximately the end of June 2018. The course resides within the Graphic Communication Design Programme and contributes to a broader subject community alongside BA (Honours) Graphic Communication Design. You will be joining a diverse international student and staff community.
This post entails the cultivation of a deep and critical perspective on graphic communication design and has elements of teaching and leadership. You will take responsibility for day to day management of one cohort of MAGCD students including delivery of the curriculum and assessment, pastoral care, planning and organisation, facilitation of hourly paid staff, recruitment and admissions, induction, events and exhibitions. Together with the Course Leader, Programme Director and other Year Leader, you will contribute to the day to day shaping of the course.
You will bring an in-depth and critically aware perspective on graphic communication design. You have experience of teaching and leadership within a higher education environment. You thrive on challenges and can manage time, resources and complex workloads. You have a postgraduate qualification, an established practice and professional profile in graphic or communication design, or a related discipline, and/or a commitment to research and engagement with current disciplinary and interdisciplinary debates. You are committed to and passionate about teaching and learning and providing excellent student support. You bring a creative and reflective approach to your work as an educator and practitioner.
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.
