IF YOU HAVE WHAT INSPIRES US:
VISION, ENERGY, INNOVATION
University of the West of Scotland is a leading edge modern University and we are at an exciting stage in our development. We have renewed our academic and international focus and are growing our research and knowledge exchange. Our investment in people now sees us recruiting up to 80 academic posts across the institution. We are looking for engaged and talented individuals, like you, to make a real impact on the local, national and international communities we serve.
Faculty of Business & Creative Industries
SCHOOL OF CREATIVE & CULTURAL INDUSTRIES
The School of Creative and Cultural Industries is an ambitious, forward-looking school, delivering programmes at three of the University’s campuses, including the extensive purpose-built facilities within the new £70 million Ayr Campus building. These facilities include a suite of radio studios, television studios, performance areas, music studios and computer laboratories. With Skillset Media Academy Status and exciting plans for REF 2014, we are looking now for an outstanding individual to join our team in a newly established and significant role for the School.
The Studio and Technical Operations Manager will have a broad range of responsibilities. As an entirely new commercial enterprise an early priority will be to establish the studios, creating and building a network of contacts, and you will work in partnership with the Skillset Media Academy Manager to develop a marketing strategy in order to meet commercialisation and knowledge exchange targets. As well as overseeing the specialist facilities, you will balance the commercial aspects of the post with optimising the student experience.
You will be highly self-motivated with high level financial planning, and a mix of academic, technical and commercial skills and experience. You will be able to demonstrate your knowledge of the target markets for commercialising the studios, and supporting the provision of the Skillset Media Academy, and have proven experience of business development including planning and execution of business development activity. A degree or equivalent is essential with commitment to CPD, plus extensive technical experience.
The post will be based at the Ayr Campus, though you will oversee School technical operations at other campuses, and be expected to travel as the post requires.
