The role

University of the Arts London is recruiting a Head of Online Showcasing. This exciting new role will work across all of our world-famous colleges, bringing the creativity of UAL graduates to a global audience.

Since the pandemic, Online Showcasing has emerged as a critical parallel channel to our traditionally venue-led showcasing activities.

As a relatively new approach to showcasing, the Head of the new Online Showcasing service has an exciting opportunity to shape the future of Online Showcasing at UAL with its students, staff and partners.

You’ll be passionate about the delivery of showcasing in a digital format, and embrace the possibilities this presents, such as extending the reach and impact of our graduating students’ creativity to a global audience.

To achieve this, you’ll work alongside digital, creative and academic teams to ensure the continuation of Online Showcasing activities. This includes the Summer Shows on UAL Graduate Showcase, as well as postgraduate, institute and ‘moment’ shows throughout the academic calendar.

A key aspect of the role is to consult with stakeholders to develop an Online Showcasing strategy, focusing on the platform and content. You’ll help to ensure a smooth transition of the platform (solution, operating processes and knowledge) into a packaged service that supports academic and College staff, and continues to improve the Online Showcasing experience for students, visitors and industry seeking creative talent.
